Love and respect this player for all that he did for the Orioles.
Watching him and Cal Jr play, was magical.

Eddie, with the exception of Frank, may have been the most clutch player in Oriole history.

Eddie is also the reason, that whenever I hear Stan Charles on the radio or TV, I immediately flip the channel

My favorites went like this: Frank and Brooks to Bobby Grich to Eddie. There was nothing more magical than the Eddie-Eddie chant at Memorial Stadium followed by Eddie getting a big hit. I saw two of his grand slams in person at Memorial Stadium, including one on August 16, 1981 against the White Sox. That game also featured the first major league hit for a young infielder by the name of Cal Ripken, Jr. It was Cal’s second major league start and first as a SS. Eddie hit a GS in the third and sent the game into extra innings with a 2-run shot in the ninth. Unfortunately, the Orioles lost in the 10th. Dave Ford took the loss. As he was coming up some were calling him a young Jim Palmer. His career would last another two games. To paraphrase Lloyd Bentsen “Dave, you’re no Jim Palmer.”

Posnanski on Murray, as part of his '10 players who just missed the top 100' series.
