Danny Murtaugh

I just noticed that Danny Murtaugh is among the 20 former managers, executives and umpires on the new Hall of Fame ballot to be considered by the Veterans Committee next month.

Billy Martin, Whitey Herzog, Dick Williams and Davey Johnson are just some of the other names on the ballot, so I'm sure Murtaugh won't get elected over those more popular names.

But a .540 winning percentage and two world series titles is a pretty good resume. And, of course, he filled out the first all-black lineup card in MLB.

Anyone here think he's deserving and does anyone think he has a shot?
