Labeling the center of a group of similar polygons

I am working with some cadastral data and within city and towns there are the familiar lot, block, plans.

Where there is a "block", I can label the lots, parcel number and so forth for each individual polygon, but what I am having trouble with is label the block number for the lots that belong to the Block.  I can actually label the block using maplex and set limits and placement properties for the most part, but what I am not seeing or able to do "visually appealing" is to have the block number placed in the middle of the lots.

I dont have any special extension that city planners would use and I really dont want to dissolve the polys for each and every block as I have a very large number of urban areas to work with.

Any thoughts?
