Bobby Murcer, a five time All-Star — four times as a Yankee, once as a member of the SF Giants — and longtime Yankee broadcaster has passed away after a battle with brain cancer.   Bill Madden’s obituary can be found here.

I only had a handful of friends who were Yankee fans while growing up, but I’m not sure I can remember a swap more moaned about than the trade that sent Murcer to Candlestick Park and very briefly had Bobby Bonds wearing pinstripes.  The Danny Cater-Sparky Lyle trade came close, however, that was a different set of moaners.
