Between 1996 and 2010, Alex Rodriguez dominated baseball.  Sure, only Derek Jeter played in more games, but Rodriguez has more HRs, RBI and runs scored than everybody during that 15 year stretch.  Shoot, he is even top 20 in stolen bases!

Rodriguez scored 100+ runs in 13 straight seasons, averaging 122 runs scored.  He would add 152 more runs over the next two seasons to give him 1,738 over 15 seasons.  Jeter (1,680) and Johnny Damon (1,532) are the only other players to crack 1,417.  Chipper Jones scored 1,416 runs during that time period while Manny Ramirez just broke 1,400.

Bobby Abreu and Jim Thome were the only other players to even score 1,300 runs!

I think you get my point - A-Rod scored a LOT of runs.

608 of those runs were scored on home runs that he hit.  Thome (534) and Ramirez (505) were the only other players to even hit 500.

Rodriguez hit 50+ home runs three times in his career, twice with the Texas Rangers, in back to back years ('01-'02) and in 2007 with the New York Yankees.

1997 was the only time he failed to hit 30 home runs, when he hit 23 and picked up "just" 84 RBI.

Alex Rodriguez hit 42 home runs in 1999 in just 129 games (502 ABs).

A-Rod was an RBI machine, totaling 1,810 between '96 and '10.  Manny (1,658), Carlos Delgado (1,477) and Thome (1,456) were the only other players with at least 1,434 RBI.

Vladimir Guerrero (1433) and Chipper Jones (1405) were the only others to knock in 1,400 runs.

Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds each had a better single season than Alex Rodriguez, but only Bonds scored 1000+ fantasy points three times like Rodriguez did and no player scored 900+ fantasy points more times during A-Rod's prime.
