Once he joined the Phils, Dykstra was a superstar making the All-Star team 3 times and having an incredible season in 1993 when he led the Majors in Plate Appearances (773) and Runs Scored (143) while leading the National League in hits with 194 while slamming 44 2B, 19 HR, leading the National League in walks with 129 and hitting .305 with a 4.20 OBP to come in 2nd in the National League in MVP voting to Barry Bonds. On the mound however, the Tidewater Tides were just as strong... especially in the bullpen. Two future top of the line closers would come from the 1985 roster though of course neither would see those great futures in a Mets uniform. The first was a 3x future All-Star in Rick Aguilera who made a huge splash with the Minnesota Twins after going 6-4, 2.51 with the Tides in 1985 and 1-1, 0.69 in 3 starts in 1986. Aguilera was instrumental for the Mets in 1985 and 1986 posting a 10-7 record in both seasons followed by an 11-3, 3.60 in 1987. When he switched over to the bullpen in 1989 however, he was about to embark on a fantastic "rest of his 16 year MLB career". His two best seasons came with the Twins in 1991 as he would save 42 games (2.35) followed by another 41 in 1992 (2.84). Randy Myers meanwhile would also come to Tidewater as a starter (1-1, 1.84 in 1985) before the Tides converted him to a closer in 1986 (6-7-12 Sv, 2.63).  In 1988, Myers took over from the role that Orosco and McDowell had done for the Mets in 1986 and posted a 7-3, 26 Saves, 1.72 record. By 1990 he was traded to the Reds for John Franco in an exchange of closers. There he went 4-6-31 Sv, 2.08 to earn his first All-Star appearance. Myers led the Majors in saves in 1993 saving 54 games (3.11) for the Chicago Cubs, the National League in Saves in 1995 with 38 (3.88) for the Cubs and the Majors again in Saves in 1997 with Baltimore with 45 (1.51) for his 4th and final All-Star nod.
