9. Eddie Murray, 1983

<b>Stats:</b> .306/.393/.538. 33 HRs, 111 runs, 115 RBIs. 6.6 WAR, 5.7 oWAR, .392 wOBA.<br>

<b>Skinny:</b> Steady Eddie was known for his consistent excellence, as opposed to one jaw-dropping year. He finished in the top five of the AL MVP voting in five straight seasons, 1981-85, but never won. His best chance was 1983, when he was topped by Ripken. Murray actually posted better offensive numbers than his buddy, but Ripken played a more demanding position. Murray's occasionally frosty reputation with writers didn't help either.
