It's a long read, but I think it's well worth it.

In this case, I think that where there's smoke, there's fire. Seems to me that Dykstra's image is nothing more than a mirage.

Dykstra is a legend in his mind. He is his own best fan.

My least favorite Met ever. Including Bonilla and Coleman.

In a move that is not a surprise to anyone anywhere, Dykstra has filed for Bankruptcy.

Quote:
Dykstra, 46, has no more than $50,000 in assets and between $10 million and $50 million in liabilities, according to a petition filed Tuesday with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Central District of California.

That's like all the $$ in the hole Michael Jackson was. It will be offset by properties owned.

Not like Lenny will be on the streets soon.

Problem is, I think he had converted most of his assets to paper over time. I don't think he has the property assets.

It'll certainly be interesting.

Didn't he have some magazine out about how to become a good entrepreneur? I hope nobody here subscribed.

Worked for Dykstra last year...the magazine (Players Club) was aimed at players so that they can purchase annuities through him and still get the paychecks after they retire...problem was, people thought it was a good idea, but would go with another investor.

They're probably thanking their lucky stars that they did.
