When you think of great players of the last 30 years, you might tend to overlook someone like Ellis Burks. However, with 18 fairly productive seasons under his belt, Ellis managed to hit .291 for his career and crank out over 350 home runs and 1200 rbi. His career was approaching it's end in 2001, but he still managed to hit .280 with 28 HR and 29 doubles.
