Lenny Dykstra’s Odd Twitter Plea

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Just when you think Lenny Dykstra‘s life has hit rock bottom there is another story that takes the cake.

Girardi 7th Most Popular Mgr, Scully Making the Grade, Minaya Interview Inaccuracies, Citi Field Renovation

Friday, August 26th, 2011

We have chatted quite a bit about Joe Girardi‘s management style this week. In a recent Sports Illustrated poll of the players, Girardi ranked as the 7th most popular manager to play for in baseball. This aligns with what I have heard, as the player perception of Girardi is far different than the media one. […]

Trading Pelfrey, Trusting Hughes, Aramis Ramirez, Pittsburgh Yanks

What Could Lenny Dykstra Have Been?

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Lenny Dykstra once promised to be the best leadoff hitter in baseball.

I have chronicled Dykstra’s misfortunes since his days […]

The strange saga of Lenny Dykstra took another turn as he talked about his latest financial problems on Philadelphia sports radio.  (assist to BBTF) Why it took him so long to speak out publicly about his story: “Anyway so here is the deal, other than that one thing, walking the talk, ok, I don’t like […]

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

As I announced yesterday at our Twitter account NYBD Radio has entered into a partnership with Strat-O-Matic.

Amazing. A Japanese news crew is walking around Beverly Hills doing a story and they wander into a pawn shop. Who wanders in at about 3 minutes into the segment? None other than Lenny Dykstra.

Koosman, Dykstra and 2009 in Metsland

Friday, September 18th, 2009

One of the aspects of 2009 that has made it so difficult on Mets fans has been fate’s inability to leave the theme of suffering merely on the field of play. So while the injuries have gotten so much attention, we’ve had the opportunity to see ownership lose hundreds of billions of dollars in the […]
