Brady Anderson: Interior Designer

Every retired player has to have a hobby, and it looks like Brady Anderson’s is flipping houses (last item):

Brady Anderson, a former major league baseball player, has become a house designer with his re-do of a Malibu home he listed at slightly under $9 million.

The 3,500-square-foot, contemporary two-story has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and ocean views. The home also has vaulted ceilings, sliding glass doors in the living room, a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and a terrace off the kitchen. There is an outdoor dining area with a fire pit and an observation deck with a spa.

Given the rumors about Anderson — the steroid rumors, that is — his timing was impeccable, in that he retired just before PED testing began. I’m less impressed with the timing of his entry into the high-end real estate market. But hey, dude made $42 million in his career, so I suppose he could afford to lose a couple of million on California real estate.

    Probably pretty safe doing ultra high end stuff, that part of the market has flattened but not dropped, at least up here in the Bay Area. Get under $ 2M and the problems start.

    As long as there’s Hollywood, there will be a market for Malibu, even if it’s overseas money of questionable origin.

    Brady Anderson was definitely a symptom that was ignored. 50 HR seasons became commonplace. I remember telling friends it had to go beyond gutless pitchers refusing to come inside and the ever shrinking strike zone (both legit problems).  There was something amiss and it was obvious. 

    Thomas Boswell first wrote about steroids in 1988.  Everyone knew.

    “Brady Anderson was definitely a symptom that was ignored. 50 HR seasons became commonplace.”

    Perhaps the most beloved player of that era, Cal Ripken Jr., says there is no way Anderson was using steroids.  Indeed, he said that Anderson’s 50 HR were really a function of luck as much as anything.  He said that in watching Anderson that year, Brady put together a season’s worth of perfect swings where he got the barrel of the bat squared up.  Anderson was always a workout and health freak, but you can hardly say that one season has to point to steroids.
