In Appreciation of Dale Murphy

Via Deadspin comes this cool doodle by Tyson Murphy, son of former Brave Dale Murphy, who is on the Hall of Fame ballot for what is likely the last time this year:

Awesome. I remember Dale Murphy being one of the Dodgers' foils growing up, and although I'm not sure if he's a Hall of Famer, I'm sure he's in the hall of fame for one of his most important fans. That's much cooler, in my book.

I'm in the Christmas spirit, peoples!

I remember him starting out as a catcher.

He was a good guy. Dodger killer.

You gotta read the letter Dale's son, Chad, wrote to the BBWAA. Buster Olney posted it on his blog: http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/blog/_/name/olney_buster/id/8726160/a-hall-fame-case-dale-murphy-mlb

Pretty awesome if you ask me.
