Frequently embattled screwball, Lenny Dykstra was sentenced today to three years in a California state prison after a judge rejected the former Met’s request to withdraw a no-contest plea. This was the grand theft auto trial. You know, the one where he and two accomplices were charged with trying to “lease and then sell high-end cars from several auto dealerships by claiming credit through a phony business.” That old bit.
The honorable Dykstra isn’t done just yet as he will stand trial this summer for federal bankruptcy charges.
For the time being, the hope is that Nails will make some productive use of his three-year stint and become the greatest imprisoned baseball player since California Penal’s Ricky Vaughn.
