  • Lenny Dykstra: Financial Guru

    http://jacklowephotography.com/LennyDykstra.htm

    They have HBO's Real Sports segment on Nails and how he's a financial genius right now and worth over 100 million just a few years after nearly losing it all.

    BTW...that collision they show in the beginning is BRUTAL. Who is the other outfielder that he collides with? Anyone remember?

      Seems like Lenny is bringing the same intensity to his investment job. I think his whole "I don't like to read", is partly an act. But what he has done is pretty impressive.

        Lenny writes an investment column on Yahoo...he's very conservative, studies the companies carefully, sets an investment goal, and gets out once he's hit the goal. I think that he advocates things like writing covered calls to limit his risk, at the cost of limiting gain.
        Watch, now we'll find out that he's up to his neck in mortgage-backed paper and is broke again...

          Apparently, Dykstra's financial genuis and business acumen is a total sham. He owes lots of people lots of money, including his brothers. Plus, he's facing multiple lawsuits.

            I also thought I read where his house was foreclosed on this month.

              From reading the ESPN article Dykstra seems to live in some fantasy land where he doesn't have to pay his debts. Life doesn't work that way, Lenny. :o

                Oh, my goodness...who could have seen that coming? Seriously, did anybody really buy that story when it aired? Real Sports is an excellent show but it really suffers when Bernard Goldberg is given free reign.

                After reading that story, I have to admit, he's an even viler scumbag than I already thought. I wouldn't have thought that was possible.

                  I had my doubts. Dykstra never came across as an intellectual business type personality as a ballplayer.

                  How can you borrow $23,000 from your own mom and then don't pay her back. Then his lame excuse about how he "took care of her" when he was making millions as a ballplayer.

                  According to BBF he earned at least $36 million over his career. How does one blow $36 million and end up broke?

                    It seems to me that several members of the '93 Phillies are absolutely insane...

                      You surround yourself with the "right" people and it happens. Why do you think so many boxers become broke?

                      Dykstra actually scammed a Nigerian scammer?

                        Jon Heyman gave it to him with both barrels a little while ago on Jim Rome's show.

                          Yeah, I kind of have to think I'd trust the monkey with the dartboard before I'd believe anything Dykstra, Goldberg, or Cramer ever utters again.

                            He's waiting for his share of the bailout. He's "too big to fail"...oh wait...that was John Kruk.
