Alex Rodriguez – 54*
A-Rod won another AL MVP award in 2007 after another scorching season. This was a brilliant year for Rodriguez as he maintained a .645 slugging percentage and won the Silver Slugger Award. Strangely, it was also the only time he won the latter and an MVP award in the same season (via MLB.com).
Unfortunately, we must take all of Rodriguez’s achievements with a pinch of salt because of the Biogenesis scandal. Many of the most exciting sluggers tainted their names through drug scandals. It’s a shame that we’re including Rodriguez on this list because he was brilliant at his best.
