I remember this guy totally sucked as a reliever. I did win a free pitcher of beer once when I bet a guy at the bar that the Mets were going to piss away a game we were watching cause I saw Dale Murray warming up in the bullpen.

The Yankees traded Fred McGriff, Dave Collins and Mike Morgan to get this guy from Toronto. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!

A supposed sinker ball pitcher that Bob Murphy would tout for his supposed ability to get players to hit ground balls and create double plays. All I can remember are the numerous fly ball home runs he gave up.

This guy set the standard of really bad relief pitchers that the Mets have had in their past. He seems like a modern Mel Rojas. Even with his total lack of talent and that he cost the Mets MANY runs, I always loved him because the Yankees got totally screwed when they traded for him. They let go of Fred McGriff for this dork-----beautiful!

One thing I will always remember about Dale Murray. Back in 79 I was watching my Cubs play the Mets at Shea on WGN TV. It was a slow and boring game, delayed by rain a few times. During one of the delays as they were pulling the tarp back the cameras panned Shea for the few diehards that decided to stay. Jack Brickhouse spotted a sign in the crowd that said..."Put us on TV, WGN!" Brickhouse and camera crew zoomed in on them and Brickhouse said..."Hey look at that, how's that for clever advertising? The two fans then flipped the sign over and Brickhouse said..."oh wait there's more...

It read and was seen on LIVE TV that..."Dale Murray Fuc%ing Sucks!" Brickhouse read up to the "F" word and then freaked and almost had a stroke on the air. I was 11 at the time and lost it because my Dad was right behind me in his LAZY BOY where he nearly wet himself because he was laughing so hard. I would do anything to have that on video.

Where did he earn greater infamy? As an incompetent Mets reliever? Or being the object of the three-for- one trade that sent Fred McGriff from the Yankee farm system to the Toronto Blue Jays' starting lineup?

It just amazes me as to what the Yankees saw in this guy when they did the three-for-one deal. The "baseball people" who live in Steinbrenner's head must have been drunk.

If he had gotten the third out in the top of the ninth, there would not have been a pine tar game
