Nails Nailed

We'll always have this moment.

As if the Mets don’t already have enough problems with their current team, a prominent member of their past received some bad news today.

Former outfielder Lenny Dykstra was sentenced to three years in prison for grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement.

“Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Ulfig sentenced Dykstra after refusing to allow him to withdraw his plea and said the scam to lease high-end automobiles from dealerships by providing fraudulent information and claiming credit through a phony business showed sophistication and extensive planning.”

Apparently, he learned everything he knows about business from the Wilpons.

Oh, and I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, but every article about his sentencing identifies him as an ex-Met.  He played for the Phillies, too, you know.
