Livan Hernandez joined the Mets roster today and Marlon Anderson was designated for assignment. It wasn’t a surprise for anyone. The speculation has been going on for weeks. Anderson can either accept an assignment to Triple-A Buffalo or become a free agent.

Anderson has been very successful since 2005 as a part-time player and pinch hitter. He got off to a bad start with the Dodgers in 2007 and was released in July of that year. The Mets picked him up the next day as a free agent and signed him to a 2-year deal after the season.

The Mets stand to eat $1.1 million on Anderson’s guaranteed contract.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
