    Default NAILS showing his thing !!

    THIS is the result of nearly 2 decades of steroid abuse-Dykstra was one of my favorite players until he came back from off season looking like Pop-eye ! Found with coke and HGH and already has a boatload of pending cases, he now adds indecent exposure to his list . A shame-the last time I saw him on TV he was slurring his words and was obviously WAY out in left field
    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former New York Mets star Lenny Dykstra was charged on Thursday with exposing himself to a string of women who answered his Craigslist employment ads, Los Angeles city prosecutors said on Thursday.
    The 48-year-old former World Series hero was charged with two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine per count if convicted, Los Angeles City Attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan said.
    Mateljan said Dykstra is accused of exposing himself to six women who answered ads he placed on Craigslist between 2009 and April of this year seeking a housekeeper or personal assistant.
    "He would inform them that they also needed to give him a massage and then he would take off his clothes and expose himself to them," Mateljan said.
    The charges against Dykstra come as he already faces considerable legal troubles.
    In July, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered the former athlete to stand trial on 25 counts of grand theft auto, attempted grand theft auto, filing false financial statements and possessing a controlled substance.
    That case stems from what Los Angeles County prosecutors say was a scheme by the former athlete, his accountant and another man to lease cars using phony business and credit information.
    A search of Dykstra's home during the investigation allegedly turned up cocaine, Ecstasy and a synthetic growth hormone.
    He faces 12 years in state prison if convicted at trial.
    An unrelated indictment handed down by a federal grand jury in May accuses Dykstra of stealing or destroying some $400,000 in property that was part of his bankruptcy case.
    The former ballplayer faces up to 80 years in federal prison if convicted in that case, according to federal prosecutors.
    Dykstra, nicknamed "Nails" during his playing days, spent more than a decade in the major leagues, mostly as an outfielder for the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies,
    He is perhaps best remembered by Mets fans for the 1986 season, when he struck a walk-off game-winning home run in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.
    In Game 3 of the 1986 World Series, he hit a key lead-off home run, sparking a comeback by the Mets from a 2-0 series deficit to win the championship over the Boston Red Sox.

    Man, I loved watching that dude play. He reminded me a lot of Pete Rose with his hustle and hard-nosed play. (Insert prison joke here). That '93 Philly team with him, Kruk and Dalton reminded me of a beer league softball team that happened to make good. But the man was never considered a genius by anyone. I would say it is a shame, but I'm sure people could see this coming for years.

    That Phillies team was as close to the old gas house gang as any team in history.Remember the Kruk interview with Letterman ? When Letterman asked ''have you ever played with it ? Kruk replied-''NO-I may have fondled it a bit ''Dave was talking about Kruk's bat-Kruk was not.

    Sounds like Kruk! I remember tv going to a small West Virginia town where he was from. They were interviewing some good ol' boys in a locar dive bar and everyone of them said that Kruk still hangs out there like one of the guys.

    Check out this website. It has some good quotes from Kruk.

    Thanks for the link. This may have been my favorite: "It's amazing that fans want to see me play. It's kind of scary. I guess that's what's wrong with our society."
