New York Times: Lenny Dykstra: Out of Prison, and Still Headstrong

Wanna see a magic trick? I can get from Lenny to The Sopranos in two degrees of separation. Lenny’s son is Cutter Dykstra. Cutter had a child with Jamie-Lynn Sigler. Jamie-Lynn played Meadow Soprano. Tah-dah!

Nailed!: The Improbable Rise and Spectacular Fall of Lenny Dykstra * Christopher Frankie

Revelations from the book (thanks to philly.com):

  • Dykstra liked to “leave a large amount of feces in the toilet . . . so he could hear the shrieks of the hotel’s grossed-out maids.”
  • He once told a female executive, in a meeting, that he had “impregnated three women in the same night and made them all get abortions.”
  • He referred to Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter as “darkies,” and the legendary Willie Mays, with whom he had a business relationship, as his “field n—er.”

Bodily functions, racial and sexist slurs, and unwanted slurs everywhere. Sounds like a frat house all tied up in one man: LDD, Lenny Delta Dykstra.

Dykstra is on the Mitchell Report, the official list of players who abused steroids.

Not surprisingly, Dykstra also has his own tag at TMZ.

And Dykstra’s “theme song”? It’s Travis McCoy feat. Bruno Mars. Oy.
