You name your child "Leonard" and you have certain hopes and expectations. Chief amongst them being that, no matter what, he doesn't wind up a guy named "Lenny." The Dykstra's lost out on that one and the gritty hits just keep on coming. Lenny pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud on Friday and could spend four years in…
The latest issue of Sports Illustrated has a feature by David Epstein about the human flotsam that is Lenny Dykstra, who was sentenced on Monday to three years in California state prison after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and filing a false financial statement. Epstein spoke with an LAPD detective who…
Today's sentence, handed down by a California judge, was in relation to the no contest plea former Mets and Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra had entered in October on charges of grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. Dykstra's attempt to withdraw the plea was denied, which is not surprising…
Just when you think Lenny Dykstra has finally drowned in life's big fat puddle of chew spit, he swims to the surface long enough to cough up just a little more of what's left of his dignity.
Today, Lenny Dykstra pleaded no contest to three counts of felony grand theft auto and one count of submitting false statements to a financial institution stemming for
allegedly leasing sweet rides with bogus paperwork. In return for said pleading, 21 other charges were dropped and Nails was ROR'd until his January…
Aaron Michael Plaat knows what you probably think about Lenny Dykstra. That he's a licorice-chomping prick or a shifty grifter who belongs behind bars, like he currently is. But the 24-year-old Ohio State "go-getter" grad doesn't see him that same way, though he easily should.
Your morning roundup for July 23, the day after we learned that high-school tennis coaches really might want to stay away from strip-club ownership.
At one point this guy seemed fairly wealthy, you know. Now Nails is short on cash, but you're only a few clicks (and several thousand dollars!) away from helping to pay his bail for bankruptcy fraud charges and get Nails free.
Giving Doc Gooden bad advice is like buying the Pope a crucifix: he's received more than his fair share over the years, and probably doesn't need any more. So we're glad he ignored Dykstra's efforts to bust him out of "Celebrity Rehab." [CBS]

Your morning roundup for April 16, the day Ralphie turns 40, making a whole lot of people question their very mortality, their confidence as fra-gee-lay as a leglamp.
Lenny Dykstra's coat-tailing of Charlie Sheen has almost become as annoying as everything else Sheen (after a very good run, though). But the aftermath of Nails's wholly impressive interview with the NBC affiliate in Philly the other night continues resonating beyond his choice words about winning (and living in Macy…
The Lenny Dykstra/Charlie Sheen revival tour can't do nothing but gather steam. Just two days after Dykstra vouched for the coke-fueled genius that is Sheen, they took to the radio waves to "set the record straight on the myriad of exaggerations, misinformation and outright falsehoods about his life that have been…
It was always supposed to come to this: Lenny Dykstra singing the "exclusive" praises of his pal Charlie Sheen to Radar Online. But Lenny being Lenny, there has to be an endgame, and that endgame could very well be squatter's rights on a spare room at Sheen's L.A. mansion, where he was hanging last Friday.
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
Now I may not be some big-city financier, but Lenny Dykstra had me at "The steroid issue really isn't relevant right now. ... But [Jim] Cramer's been the only guy that's been correct. ... I'm 168-0 right now."
