not to mention that everything he accomplished was done with utmost respect for the game and without performance-enhancing substances of any kind.
His legacy continues to draw unmatched respect and admiration from players, coaches, and fans alike.
It ought to suggest some sort of fortitude and incorruptibility greater than a ballplayer resisting the temptation to juice, or drink, or cheat on his wife. Those are things that, I suspect, the majority of players also succeed at,
Even on peak, Dawson's best 6 year run was 36, Murphy's 32 although that is a dWAR difference.
On the Rfield numbers ... for 85 and 85 they are pretty extreme but it is reasonably consistent with his actual usage in that the Braves moved him full-time to RF in 87 at the age of 31. That was at least in part to make room for Dion James, a pretty good player that I don't remember at all. Still, as I said, give him 0 Rfield and he only gains 3 WAR. Zero out his dWAR (requiring him to be above-average relative to position) and he gains only 7 WAR.
