Sad Saturday

Following the early morning news of Tony Snow comes the late afternoon word of the death of a beloved member of the New York Yankees family, Bobby Murcer. Murcer had the unenviable role of being projected as the "next great Yankee centerfielder" after Mickey Mantle.

Murcer was never quite that good, but he nonetheless had several tours of duty with the team from the '60s and '80s-- and then gained even greater respect and love from the Yankee faithful as a broadcaster. An especially poignant passing just three days before the All-Star Game is held at Yankee Stadium.

Bobby Murcer, dead at 62, from cancer.
