ABOVE: This Danny never portrayed the Pirates skipper, but ironically his name was "Murtaugh". Figure that out!
ABOVE: Not the glamorous type, Murtaugh nevertheless made his share of magazine covers.
Murtaugh's managerial career with the Pirates could best be compared to that of a wino with a bottle of muscatel in a brown paper bag. He loved managing and couldn't stay away from it. But he knew that it was very bad for his health and would do it anyway. He couldn't help himself!
