4) Last 5 Padres players with 100 RBI: Adrian Gonzalez, 2010 (101), 2008 (119), 2007 (100)

The last time the Padres were any good for multiple seasons in a row came in the mid/late 2000s. San Diego had winning seasons in three of their five seasons from 2006-2010, and Adrian Gonzalez was a huge reason why.

The Padres acquired Gonzalez in a deal with the Rangers following the 2005 season. Gonzalez hadn't done much in Texas, but was given the chance to play every day for San Diego. It's safe to say he ran with it.

His second season with the Padres was his first in which he drove in 100 runs, knocking in 100 in the 2007 season. He hit 30 home runs, had an .849 OPS, and finished 20th in the NL MVP balloting. He had established himself as not only a future star, but a present star. He helped the Padres win 89 games, although that wasn't enough to qualify for the postseason.

Gonzalez had his best run-producing year the following campaign when he knocked in a whopping 119 runs. He slashed .279/.361/.510 with 36 home runs and the 119 runs batted in. He was third in the National League with that gaudy number.

Two years later, Gonzalez did it again, knocking in 101 runs for the 2010 squad. He had a .904 OPS, hit 31 more home runs, and finished fourth in the NL MVP balloting.

Those were the three years Gonzalez drove in 100+, but it also should be noted that he drove in 99 during the 2009 season. He hit 40 homers that year too. He's the most consistent run-producer on this list, and was one of the better first basemen in the game during his Padres tenure.
