Hall of Fame hopeful Dale Murphy took part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) chat on Reddit yesterday. There’s some really interesting stuff in there, ranging from thoughts on his playing career to sabermetrics and the new Wild Card play-in game.
It’s a must-read for anyone who followed Murphy’s career, but I was mostly struck by his reply to a question about his favorite music artists. Who knew he was such a hipster? Although, if Murphy wants to get on the good side of most baseball writers, he should have just answered Springsteen.
