The A-Rod Top 10 – #3

by Owen Hetherington


2007 MVP Season

Two seasons after earning the 2005 MVP, during the 2007 season, Rodriguez once again lead all of baseball in runs (143), home runs (54), RBIs (156), slugging (.645), and OPS (1.067) while posting an impressive .314 average.

The 2007 MVP was Rodriguez’s third of his career. He started the season off with 14 homers in his first 18 games.

He was the first player since Roger Maris in 1961 to lead the majors in RBIs, home runs, and runs.

In 2007, A-Rod became the ninth player to win the MVP three or more times (Barry Bonds-7, Yogi Berra-3, Roy Campanella-3, Joe DiMaggio-3, Jimmie Foxx-3, Mickey Mantle-3, Stan Musial-3, and Mike Schmidt-3). He received all of the first-place votes on the ballet, except for two.

Rodriguez still sought his first world series ring as he later said,

“I would trade all three for one championship ring. I wouldn’t think twice about it”.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
