Johnny Damon is ridiculous

One day his agent is proclaiming his love of octopus in order to brown nose the Tigers. The next day he’s texting writers in Atlanta saying that the Braves are at the “top of the list.”

Tampa Bay is allegedly in the running too.  Look for Boras to go on the radio today talking about how much he loves early bird specials and the Gasparilla Pirate Festival.

Aaargh.

Former Mets and Phillies star outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been arrested for allegedly threatening an Uber driver early Wednesday morning, Mike Deak and Suzanne Russell of the Courier News report. The official charges include third-degree making terroristic threats and various drug offenses.

The driver alleges that Dykstra demanded he change the scheduled destination and threatened to kill him when the driver refused. Police didn’t recover a gun but they found cocaine, MDMA, and marijuana among Dykstra’s belongings.

Dykstra was released on a summons pending a court appearance.

Dykstra, 55, has found himself in trouble with the law quite a bit. He was accused last year of stealing from and trashing a hotel room in the Hamptons. He spent time in jail earlier this decade after being charged with grand theft auto and filing a false financial report. He also sentenced to jail time after exposing himself to women he met through Craigslist.
