2. SS HANLEY RAMIREZ IN 2009

Can you believe that the same player is on this list?! Hanley Ramirez happened to have the second greatest season in Miami Marlins history among position players as well. He did this the exact next season in 2009! It makes sense to add that it's a shame that the greatest SS in team history has never been to the playoffs with the team.

Hanley Ramirez batted .342/.410/.543 in 151 games and 576 AB that season. That .342 batting average actually led the Major Leagues that season. He had 24 home runs and 106 RBI with 27 stolen bases. This time his defense earned him an even better 1.0 dWAR. Overall, he was worth an even better 7.1 WAR. Sadly, he once again failed to win the NL MVP award. This time he came close as he finished second in the voting.

Who won the award? Why Albert Pujols again. This time "The Machine" batted .327/.443/.658, with 47 home runs and 135 RBI in 160 games and 568 AB. He was worth 9.7 WAR that season. If it was any other season, Hanley Ramirez could've won the NL MVP award, but sadly this just wasn't that type of season.
