Doran led NL second basemen in assists during his 1983 rookie season and quickly established himself as one of the league’s best both defensively and offensively. The pouty-lipped fan favorite proved a consistent offensive threat, setting career highs with 16 HR in 1987 and 42 steals in 1986. His 92 runs in 1986, matching his personal best, helped the Astros win the division title. He had arm troubles in 1988, but nonetheless led NL second basemen in fielding for the second straight year. In late August 1990 he was traded to Cincinnati, where he spent two seasons as the Reds’ regular second baseman before closing out his career with 28 games for the Brewers in 1993.
