  3. Hall adds one ... but not the one we thought

    Rob Neyer

  8. Why Dale Murphy is still waiting

    Rob Neyer

    Today I was going to write about Edgar Martinez, but then I got all carried away with rumors of the Mariners going after Jason Bay, so instead I'll write today about Dale Murphy. As in, what happened? Today there are players in the majors who are ...
