The third member of the famed Houston Astros “Killer B’s”, Lance Berkman had a decade of success in the state of Texas where he would finish five times in the Top Ten in National League Most Valuable Player voting.  Berkman was a certified run producer who would tally over 100 RBIs as an Astro six times and would seven times exceed the .400 On Base Percentage mark.  That in itself is impressive enough to keep Lance Berkman in the top ten on this list for decades to come.
