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
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Meh.

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

Yeah not so much if my boss looked like Lenny Dykstra...

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.
