I was a kid and I absolutely adored everything about Murphy. I hated the day he was traded, the day he retired, and the fact that he couldn't get 2 more homeruns. It is a travesty he isn't in the HOF. You are supposed to be the best at your position or towards the top for a long time. He dominated and was 2nd in homeruns and RBI for the 1980s only to Schmidt and Murray. When he was back to back MVP he did it at a time when he was only the 4th man to do it.
