|Charts seem to legitimize just about any topic, am I right?|
I could go on and say how guys like Murphy are cleaner, nicer, and have better teeth than guys like Sosa, Bonds, McGwire, and the rest, but I guess I'm not as passionate in that kind of way. Personally, I think Murph was a good, even great player who played the game well and ought to be recognized for his own work, not just compared to others'.
As for his post-playing career, Dale has kept himself visible. He will be the first base coach in the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
I think Dale has a shot at induction yet, and I will be hoping for the best in 2014!
