People might think he has not been a Yankee long enough to make this list, but he already has seven 100-RBI seasons in Pinstripes, which is three more than Mantle had. He has won two MVP awards and two American League home run titles since he has been in New York. The first since Ruth to hit his 600th career home run as a Yankee. His 18 RBIs in the 2009 postseason are a franchise record, and A-Rod would have to be considered the top third baseman in Yankees history. (Credit: Getty)
