7. Greg Luzinski, 1970-80 Phillies

Greg Luzinski spent the bulk of his 15-year career with the Philadelphia Phillies, and his 223 home runs with the franchise rank seventh all-time, ahead of Cy Williams, Jimmy Rollins, and Dick Allen.

The mid-70s were an especially productive time for Luzinski, who was an All-Star four seasons in a row from 1975-78, hit 129 home runs, and was a two-time MVP runner-up over that span. He averaged 27 home runs per 162 games in his career.

In his final season with the Phillies, they won their first championship. It only took 97 years.
