Murphy on ballet for final time?

I ran across this article on MLB's official site and thought I'd pass it along to youse guys, just in case you hadn't run across it. Like I did. Because I spend my time looking at porn for baseball news to share with youse guys.

Personally, I'd like to see Dale Murphy in Cooperstown. He was the one saving grace for Atlanta during the '80s (damn, they were a horrible club); he was a pretty darn good ball player-- and a classy guy, as well. He won back-to-back NL MVP awards in 1982 and 1983 and compiled more total bases than any other player during the decade. He was second only to Mike Schmidt in HR and Eddie Murray in RBI-- and both those guys are in the Hall. I suppose his career .265 lifetime batting average is the primary hindrance to his being elected by the voters. What do you think?
