Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2009 World Series Champion, 3x AL MVP, 9x All-Star, 2x Golden Glove Winner
If A-Rod weren't so ominous and creepy, he'd probably be recognized as the greatest baseball player of the decade. He doesn't fit the mold of a legend, he has a positive steroid test, and he seems to choke under pressure. But all that aside, Rodriguez has obnoxious numbers. Casting aside an injury-laden '11 campaign, A-Rod's averaged 41 home runs and 122 RBIs during the Complex era and only missed one All-Star game in last ten years. And if pissing off Derek Jeter or banging Madonna were a sport (and clearly they both should be), dude would have more than one ring.
