Phillies great Lenny Dykstra dishes on Bryce Harper’s greatness, says Aaron Nola could pitch on 1993 team

The Philadelphia Phillies have a 2-0 lead in the NLCS. Aaron Nola pitched six shutout innings, and superstar first baseman Bryce Harper kept his postseason hitting streak alive. 

Outfielder Lenny Dykstra started his career with the New York Mets and won the 1986 World Series with the team, but he spent the majority of his major league career with the Phillies.

On Tuesday, Dykstra made an appearance on Dan Dakich of Outkick’s “Don’t @ Me” show and suggested Harper and Nola’s style of play would translate to his 1986 Mets team, but he also believes both would be stars on the 1993 Phillies squad.

“The ‘93 Phillies made the ’86 Mets look like school children,” Dykstra said when asked whether Harper and Nola could play for the World Series-winning Mets team.

The series shifts to Phoenix Thursday, where the D-Backs will look to bounce back at Chase Field.
