Phillies: Five trade that won the 1993 NL Championship
6 of 6
1 – Lenny Dykstra – center field (1993 stats: 143 runs, 129 walks, .305 AVG, .902 OPS)
Dykstra had the best season of his career in 1993 and was the catalyst for the Phillies offensive attack. He led the league in runs, hits, and walks while setting career highs in doubles, home runs and RBI. Dykstra hit .280 in the NLCS with two home runs and .348 with four home runs and seven walks in the World Series. Injuries plagued Dykstra throughout his career, retiring with the Phillies following the 1996 season.
While legal issues and personal problems have surfaced on numerous occasions following his career, there is no question Dysktra was the key to the team reaching the World Series in 1993.
