The only other player to do so prior to Alvarez was former Met Jeromy Burnitz back in 2000.

i'm trying to imagine where that puts him on the alltime list. In the 60s or 70s?

No guarantee at all that they'll win everything--the best team on paper rarely does--but with that offense + Verlander/Cole/Greinke (Miley would be the #1 starter for more than a few teams), and Osuna (good enough), they look '70 Orioles/'75 Reds/'98 Yankees good right now.

howbout the '54 Indians?

'84 Tigers and '86 Mets, for sure. I don't know...I'm probably contradicting myself, but to be included in this group, winning the Series seems important.
