Breaking: Former Comcast Broadcaster John Marzano Dead

19 Apr

Apparently John Marzano, former Phillies Post-Game Live broadcaster, has died:

Marzano, a native of South Philadelphia, was found dead inside his home on Passyunk Avenue.

A family member called police to break down the door shortly before noon, officials said. Marzano apparently fell down the stairs, but it is not known whether he suffered a heart attack or simply fell.

He graduated from Philadelphia’s Central High School. Marzano went on to play college baseball at Temple University, where he was inducted into the Temple’s Hall of Fame.

I may not have liked his baseball analysis, but he seemed like a genuinely good guy.

    Nice. The poor man’s not even dead 24 hours and these are the kind of comments people leave? Way to honor someone’s memory – very classy.

    All the author of this post said is that he didn’t like his analysis. He didn’t write trash. That’s more than any of the first four commenters here can say.

    Rest in peace, John.

    John Marzano was a good analyst.

    I will never ever read this blog again! How could you ever disparage the life and career of John Marzano! Not only was his analysis excellent, but his career .644 OPS was something to respect!

    And he was right — Abreu was a stat-padder. Not only did he pad his doubles, he padded his walks and home runs and RBI, and subsequently his OBP and SLG.

    Don’t you know that when you put up an OPS+ of at least 114 for 10 straight seasons, you are a stat-padder? Jeez, the least Bobby could have done is throw in a clunker season where he had a AVG/OBP/SLG line of .250/.290/.420 like Pedro Feliz, who is a gamer.

    John wouldn’t want anyone fighting or arguing, especially when it comes down to baseball opinion.

    I think this gent paid his respects by blogging about it and just pointed out that he may not have been a fan of his analysis.

    No anger, Marz wouldn’t want it.
