And with this, John Maine will have completed most of his East Coast Bias career tour. All he needs now is a stop in Philly:

 

Maine seems have a giant fork sticking in his back — well, his shoulder — as he never actually appeared in a minor-league game for the Red Sox after signing a deal with them in the offseason due to more health problems. Last year he had a 7.43 ERA in 11 starts at Colorado Springs.

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.
