The 5 Worst 80-Plus RBI Seasons in the Last 5 Years

As many baseball fans begin to understand how misleading RBI can be, it's fascinating to look back through the years at a player's supposedly good season that wasn't actually so. Similar type articles typically cut the baseline off at 100 RBI, but I wanted to lower it down to 80 for this article, producing more comically bad seasons. 

As for how I decided on the order, I used primarily Weighted On-Base Average(wOBA) and Weighted Runs Created Plus(wRC+). The latter is based off of wOBA, but is park and league adjusted and is similar to OPS+. The score of 100 represents league average and every point higher or lower represents a percentage point better or worse than league average. 

Defense was not considered since I wanted to focus on offensive production. If I did, these rankings certainly would be different.
