patch. This to me is a big part going into this vote. Murphy goes up against possible steroid users in Bonds, Clemens, and Sosa. Who all put up remarkable numbers but yet their names in the record books could have * put beside them. Alot of writers write that the reason Dales career came to and end is because of his bad numbers he put up at the end of his career but, compared to everyone around him using steroids and other enhancements Dale was a remarkable player . So is it fare to cut someone with such remarkable talent and who played the game the way it was suppose to be played and who is a leader and ambassador for us and our youth. I say NO! If I could vote in this HOF ballot my vote would go to Dale Murphy because he is the definition of a role model, he is the spokesman our youth needs. When all they see on ESPN and other news outlets is players getting arrested for DUI or beating their girlfriends yet they are HOF calibar athletes. Murphies son Taylor Murphy has started a petition to help his Dad get into the HOF. You can find the link to the petition here!
