Former NY Mets star Lenny Dykstra is being bashed by a new book. The former MLB all-star made a name for himself during the boom days as a savy trader before the market crash of 2008. Even CBS's 60 Minutes profiled Lenny and his amazing trading skills. The segment included an interview with Jim Cramer, who couldn't say enough about Dykstra's trading skills. Things having now changed according to this article, "Penny Stock Company sues author Randall Lane on alleged Lenny Dykstra stock pump report."

The book is fantastic. I'll be doing a review of it for the site in the next couple days.

The Zeroes: My Misadventures in the Decade Wall Street Went Insane

And he does skewer Lenny, but Lenny is a total douche. Wait till you read the book. In Lenny's defense, he wasn't even the worst villain in the book.

Lenny has turned into such an ass in recent years, but he is my favorite baseball player of all-time (I was about 11 when he lead the Phillies to world series in '93) The guy could do it all on the field and played harder than anyone hence the nickname Nails. He hit 4 HRs in 6 games vs Toronto in that World Series, so clutch.

Hate to break it to you, but Lenny admits in the book that he was 'roiding to High Heaven by then.

Thanks for the newsflash dude, he was one of the most obvious steroid abusers in MLB history. It also doesn't bother me at all, I think anabolic steroids are cool. Also, I think more than half that 93 Phils team was cycling, "Macho Row" was jacked.

There was an article about him last yr in GQ...it was a writer who got a job working for a "lifestyle" magazine that Nails launched. It was a very entertaining read:

A post I found just this morning from a member of Net Penny Stock on another forum. So don't take my word for it, do your own research.
