Relic Collection: Dale Murphy

I don’t own nearly enough Dale Murphy cards. Down the road, that’s something I’ll need to address. The Braves announcing is largely abysmal now. Chip Caray is simply awful and Joe Simpson seems to want to step into the late Skip Caray’s shoes and play the role of the crank, but he just comes off like a blithering idiot. When Murph is in the booth, or Glavine for that matter, they are both on their best behavior and seem to want to be a little bit better.

Murphy was pretty much the only reason to watch Braves baseball in the late 80s, and he’s making it more enjoyable now.
