    Lenny Dykstra's 1993 season in CF was pretty salty, probably the greatest season by a lead off man in National League history.

    .302/.420./.482, 143 OPS+, 143 R, 19 HR, 82 RBI, 44 doubles, 194 H, 129 BB's, 37 SB

    Dykstra led the NL in hits, walks, and runs scored. He finished second to Barry Bonds in the MVP voting.

    Also Billy Hamilton's 1894 season is just video game-ish.

    .404/.523/.528, 155 OPS+, 192 runs, 220 hits, 98 SB, 126 BB

    Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.-Crash Davis

      RP Brad Lidge 2008

      I know everybody loves Tug but Brad Lidge in 2008 seemed to drag the whole team with his arm to the championship.

        While it would be difficult to argue against Daulton's '93 season, Spud Davis' 1933 season behind the plate also deserves mention.
