Randy Johnson. The Big Unit has been out-shined in the postseason by teammate Curt Schilling, but he was superb in the NLCS, going 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA to help send Arizona to its first World Series.
Andruw Jones and Brian Jordan. The No. 5 and No. 4 hitters in the Atlanta lineup struggled during the NLCS. Jones went 3-for-17 (.176) and Jordan finished 4-for-21 (.190).
