Lenny Dykstra's Mansion Is Up For Grabs

In the market for a new place? Lenny Dykstra is selling his $25 million home (marked down from $27.5 million due to various chewing tobacco stains on the furniture and carpets). Presumably he's getting rid of the palatial estate on the Sherwood Country Club in LA because it's too big for he and his family, and NOT because of financial reversals. Let's make that clear.

"It's a compound; it's not a house," said Dykstra, the former All-Star outfielder. "I can go for a couple of days and not see any other family members. I found out I had a tennis court I didn't know I had. And I had to buy it completely furnished. I couldn't afford to buy furniture to fill this place. Are you kidding me?"

Forgive me if I speculate that this is a guy who could be confused by his surroundings in a two-bedroom apartment. Anyway, the house — formerly owned by Wayne Gretzky — is 12,713 square feet, with eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a screening room. Tennis court may be figment of Dykstra's imagination. Here's the Sotheby's listing.
