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.


no i completely see your point, but i guess i didnt realize that met fans also considered him a hero/theirs. i knew he played in new york for the first 4-5 years of his career but new york fans usually like the divas and not the hard nosed guys (see Jeter, Derek). :-D

(AP)—Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra has sought bankruptcy protection in Los Angeles, citing more than $31 million in debts.

Federal court documents show Dykstra filed for Chapter 11 status on Tuesday. He listed assets of $50,000 or less and liabilities of between $10 million and $50 million.

Dykstra, whose lifestyle included a lavish house, a jet and a Rolls Royce, says he owes millions of dollars to his 20 largest creditors, many of them banks. His filing follows at least two dozen lawsuits over his business and financial dealings.

Dykstra, nicknamed “Nails” for his rough-and-ready style, is a former All-Star who spent 12 years with the Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies. He won a World Series with the Mets in 1986.

This guy is a complete fraud to the extent that Madoff would be proud of!
