WAR, what is it good for?

I'm not on the Dale Murphy HOF train either....BUT.....

Scott Rolen .281 BA  2,077 Hits  316 HR  1,287 RBI

Dale Murphy .265 BA  2,111 Hits  398 HR  1,266 RBI

Rolen was a 7 time All Star.  Murphy was a 7 time All Star

Rolen had 8 Gold Gloves.  Murphy had 5 Gold Gloves

Rolen was NL Rookie of the Year.  Murphy was the National League MVP twice.

Murphy was the NL Home Run Leader twice, and the RBI leader twice as well.

Rolen won a World Series.


Honestly, Dale Murphy is just as deserving as Rolen, but then, I was like WUUUUT when they announced Rolen got in.

Right field. 3rd base. Big difference when comparing to the basis for each position as it relates to the hall and where they both hit in the lineup. Rolen was ten times the fielder Murphy was. Not even close homie.

Stepping into the way back machine....I was a senior in H.S. and playing baseball at racist Jefferson Davis in Montgomery.  Like most kids that age, I dreamed of playing in the big leagues, but knew it was just that, a dream.  Sports Illustrated put out an issue where they posted the salary of every MLB player.  The top spot at that time was Mike Schmidt, of the Phillies. He was making $2.1 million.  Second and third respectively were Dale Murphy at $1.9 and Bob Horner at I believe $1.6.  I can't recall if anyone else was making a million at that time. 

But one thing I do recall, is that even though you saw those astronomical numbers, the dream of playing in the league was never about money.  Never gave it a thought.  It was about putting on that uniform and playing in front of all those people. 

I think times may have changed just a smidge.

I'm doing what I can to elevate the discourse around here.  The mouthbreathers are starting to take over.


Anyone who celebrates the merits of Biloxi, the capitol of hillbilly trash, should check from whence their own breath emanates.

4 good years (not great) years between 83-87, all else was pedestrian as it gets after 87. Almost every season was a league leader in SO's. I like Dale. He was a good player for the Bravos....but hes not a HOF'r for a reason.

A good candidate for the Hall of Pretty Good.

Too many turnovers from Green - always at critical times.  Get back to single digits with a chance to make a run?  Turnover, Green.  And if it wasn't him sending it back, it was Flan throwing up a three-point miss. 

Far more than the margin of victory were scored on transitions after a TO or a three-point clank. 

That said?  Shit happens.  It's basketball.
