From 2004-09, Guerrero played in 846 games with the Angels, smacking 1,034 hits, 173 home runs and 616 RBI.
Guerrero was awarded the 2004 American League MVP Award when he hit .337 with 206 hits (tied for career best), 39 home runs, 126 RBI ... heck, he even stole 15 bases. He's the last Angel to win the MVP award before another slugger wearing No. 27, Mike Trout, did so in 2014 and 2016.
