Catching up with Lenny Dykstra

14 Comments

Richard Sandomir of the New York Times spoke for a looong time with Len Dykstra. It’s a fun read.

Dykstra has been out of prison for 13 months now. He did his community service to high praise from the person who organizes the charity he worked for. He’s being drug tested every week and still will be for two more years and so far so good. He’s living with his ex-wife who, it seems, is the most patient and charitable person on the planet and thankfully doesn’t have any illusions about old Len. He also — and this is a bit scary — is going to get back into the investment advising business, it seems.

Here’s hoping he can channel that crazy radioactive, space-alien drive he seems to have into something positive this time around.
