The Greatest Individual Calendar Month Performances In MLB History

5. Alex Rodriguez — April 2007

Not only were A-Rod’s 2007 totals by far his best in pinstripes, winning him an AL MVP, but they were at large the best of his recently completed legendary career.

In a year in which he finished with 54 homers and 156 RBIs, Rodriguez slammed 14 homers and racked up 34 RBIs in 23 April games alone. His slugging percentage and OPS were .882 and 1.297 for the month, respectively, placing himself well on his way to a ridiculously torrent campaign.
