That's kind of a broad question. Barry Bonds fits that description, as well as Lance Berkman, A-Rod, and dozens of others.

Who is available in your league?
Are you looking to trade?
Who is on your team?

If you're looking for guys who are possibly on the WW, well, perhans Juan Encarncion. But you can see those stats for yourself with your own eyes, and don't me need to tell you they have a high average and rbi's.

If you're looking for guys who could get hot that may be free agents, I suggest Adam Dunn--he's been starting to warm up

Chris Truby should be available, and he's hot. I picked him up to sub in for Placido Polanco for a little bit in my (NL-only) league. Alex S. Gonzalez (the Cubs SS, not the Marlins one) is another guy who's hitting pretty well and could be available in a lot of leagues. He hits 7th usually, though, so his RBI's probably won't hold up.

Derek Lee can get some RBI's (and HR's), but not such a good average. Jose Hernandez is decent at the moment, but I doubt that'll last. Todd Hollandsworth might also be an okay choice, if you play him only at Coors Field.

Note that I'm only naming NL players, as I know basically nothing about the AL. If you're in a 10-team mixed league, there could be a large number of good players still available, for all I know.

Good names, guys! Here are a couple more (from the AL) who may have been overlooked:

Jay Gibbons (terrific talent)
Joe Randa (lots of fantasy folks have given up on him; he's day-to-day now, though, so wait and see what happens with him)
David Segui (hot right now)
