While you might love to hate the No. 1 player on our Cross-Sport Power Rankings this week, there's no way you can overlook Alex Rodriguez's latest milestones. Not only did he gain entrance into the exclusive 600-HR club (the seventh member), but he also stole his 300th base. Put both marks together and what do you get? The 600-HR, 300-stolen base club -- featuring only Willie Mays, Barry Bonds and now Alex Rodriguez.

Rounding out the top five are Bridgestone winner Hunter Mahan, one-hit wonder Brandon Morrow, Watkins Glen champion Juan Pablo Montoya and Mr. 38 on the all-time hits list, Derek Jeter.

Other notable vote-getters include Brett Favre (for creating buzz off a text message) and Tim Tebow (for creating buzz off a haircut). The pigskin players make our list this week at No. 7 and No. 15, respectively.
