just a couple months ago i read a really nice article on dykstra and how successful he had become in options trading and then this article comes out. fwiw dykstra has come out and denied the accusations to the inquirer here in philly, but i dont know how believable it is now. interesting situation though.

I remember reading in "The Bad Guys Won" that Dykstra was the most ridiculous gambler ever.
People like that don't usually go very far.

I can't believe what he said about his first four covers. 8-o X-I %-6 X-I

He did spend seven years in Philly. It's sad but some people never recover from that type of thing. :-D

On a serious note, I will always have a special place in my heart for Nails because he was a childhood hero. BUT Dykstra is a major expletive. This was known long before this article. He had a long reputation of treating people badly. There are plenty of horror stories of him and young Mets fans. So it would not surprise me if this is all true.

Am I the only one who would think it was funny if my/your boss came into the office rubbing his $500 tie on his crotch? Good times. :-B

Meh.

Now if the boss was rubbing it on my crotch, that would be interesting.

I don't think you're considering it in context. I am 13 years old when Nails breaks onto the scene and plays baseball with a reckless abandon unlike anyone I had ever seen. The following season the Mets won the World Series. That was a highly impressionable period in my life so yes Dykstra will also hold a special place in the hearts of Mets fans my age.

As for playing longer and better... If you're claiming ownership, you can have him.
