Alonzo's House 4 Sale

He hasn't played in Queens since 2000 but former New York Mets--and most recently, LIDucks--player, Edgardo Alonzo, is still trying to sell his grandiose grand 14,000 square foot home in Little Neck. Like so many others in a bad market and in need of moving on, Alonzo put his house on the selling block back in '06.

Asking price? $8 million greenbacks! Not bad since Alonzo is said to have paid $900,000 in 1999.

A real estate bust coupled with the challenges of selling an overbuilt house, Alonzo's expanded mansion didn't sell -- even after a price drop in 2005 to the $5 million range.

With a new gig to play for Japan's Yomiuri Giants, Alonzo has switched brokers and dropped the asking price further to $4.3 million--a 46% drop from the original price.
