Bobby Murcer

I was so very saddened to hear of Bobby Murcer's death. I didn't start following the Yankees until after his playing days but I adored him as a broadcaster. He always seemed to think the best of everyone, players and fellow broadcasters alike. He was wonderfully steady and that, along with his "aw, shucks, who me" approach to static in the booth made him invaluable. His sense of humor always delighted me and his drawl made for wonderful listening. I always figured he'd be back next year, after he rested up a little and got back on his feet. It's hard to believe he won't be doing another game.
