“Folded Like Mitch Williams In The Ninth”- Lenny Dykstra
Posted by Mike on November 25, 2008
The man who has gone from being a scrappy, nose-picking, centerfielder to a multi-million dollar business man, Lenny Dykstra was in court yesterday over a unpaid $139,000 bill with DDK& Co. By the look of the Twizzlers in the hand of Dykstra, or by his response to the NY Post, things must have went good for Nails. Dykstra told the NY Post:
But the three-time All-Star bragged that plaintiff DDK & Co. “folded like Mitch Williams in the ninth,” a reference to his former Phillie teammate who notoriously served up a World Series-winning homer to Joe Carter of the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993.
“There was no case. There was nothing,” the now paunchy fireplug said while munching on a handful of Twizzlers.
Dykstra – who claims to have reaped $60 million playing the stock market – also laughed off another recent suit that accuses him of being a deadbeat
Halcyon Jets alleged this month that Dykstra bounced a $7,000 check for a September flight from Las Vegas to Van Nuys, Calif.
“That’s my f- – -in’ ashtray money, bro,” he said. “I don’t even know if I flew on their plane.”
