Lenny Dykstra speaks

Dec 21, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

Lenny Dykstra

Len Dykstra was on WIP in Philly with Howard Eskin yesterday. It was the first time that I can recall that he’s spoken at length about his financial implosion, highly-publicized bankruptcy and the like.

So, Lenny, what went wrong?

“It is very simple and it is called, predatory lending, meaning, look, I don’t want to get into this ‘new world order’ stuff.  I am a normal guy meaning I don’t believe in ghosts.  I am not afraid of the dark, a basic guy alright, meaning never in my life did I think there was such corporate crime.  JP Morgan, those guys are criminals.  They are criminals and they are going to have to pay.  Fireman’s Fund?  Criminals!  Meaning, I have to set an example and my example is the help through other people.  The bottom line is, I didn’t get stupid overnight, ok?  These people, some of the stuff I read, I don’t read much because I feel bad for my eyes, but I see some of the stuff, it’s insanity!  The only one that got this thing right was [Jim] Cramer.  Cramer.  Cramer has been the only guy right.”

J.P Morgan are the criminals, yet Lenny Dykstra is the guy who basically stole his son’s signing bonus. Jim Cramer is the only guy who got everything right, but he’s the one who was telling people to keep their money with Bear Stearns in 2008.  Whatever Lenny.

There’s a lot more worth reading there.  If you’re into train wrecks anyway.

    Figures the Wolfman would give this idiotic criminal time on his floundering show to try to drum up ratings. The Fanatic and Mikey Miss dominates the afternoon, Howie!!! This is why you have no respect you moron.

      Didn’t WIP go off the air after Joe Franklin died? Sorry, haven’t lived in horsemeat and velveeta town since the 70s Here, we get to not listen to WOR.

        My condolences on the loss of the heaven that is cheesesteak.

  2. BC - Dec 21, 2010 at 1:28 PM

    Sounds like Lenny picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue….

  3. Utley's Hair - Dec 21, 2010 at 1:30 PM

    Has anyone checked to make sure this was, in fact Dykstra? If it had been Dykstra, the FCC would be shutting down WIP for language.

  4. Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Dec 21, 2010 at 1:35 PM

    Cramer? Cramer? Really? Wow, he is out of touch.

    • mcsnide - Dec 21, 2010 at 2:06 PM

      Cramer was dumb enough to think Dykstra was a genius. So of course, Lenny thinks Cramer’s smart. Go to about 4:35 for the Cramer clip

  5. monicafosterathome - Dec 21, 2010 at 1:42 PM

    Know who else is a criminal? Lenny is – he recently ripped off a nice young lady at the Avalon hotel in Beverly Hills, and if he doesn’t make it right by tomorrow, she’s coming forward. You don’t pull this crap on young women trying to get by – especially over the holidays!

    • jh0088 - Dec 21, 2010 at 2:02 PM

      wow craig, one Lenny Dykstra post on your site and you have hookers publically demanding retibution… or else! You wanted to be in the scoop business, right? Well here ya go. Take a little trip down to the seedy side of Hollywood and you can break the Lenny Dysktra didn’t pay enough for it story.

      • monicafosterathome - Dec 21, 2010 at 2:19 PM

        I’m not talking retribution – he writes bad checks to escorts – in other words he doesn’t pay at all and thinks he can get away with it. Like I said he has 24 hours.

    • jh0088 - Dec 21, 2010 at 2:31 PM

      This story is getting better and better. What kind of an escort takes a check? Cash only. No kissing on the mouth. We know the rules.

      Craig, I really hope you’re paying attention here… I desperately want the post about Lenny Dykstra writing bad checks to escorts for services rendered.

      • Glenn - Dec 21, 2010 at 4:33 PM

        Remember – paying hookers with bad checks was what brought down Cincinnati mayor Jerry Springer. Hard to believe that he used to be more low rent than he is now.

      • jhu1997 - Dec 21, 2010 at 9:41 PM

        I am SO annoyed that somebody beat me to the Jerry Springer reference.

    • jh0088 - Dec 21, 2010 at 2:34 PM

      ooooh, I know. Scan the check you say Lenny give your for your escort services and post it here. As they say in gaming circles, “screen shot or it didn’t happen.”

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Dec 21, 2010 at 3:53 PM

      Pay yo fare, Lenny! They call it the oldest profession for a reason! It’s been around forever and people expect to be paid for services rendered! Will the “nice young lady” please stand up?

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Dec 21, 2010 at 3:55 PM

      Escort & baseball blog reader? World’s collide? Dreams come true? Brain exploding…

      • Jonny 5 - Dec 21, 2010 at 4:18 PM

        Guys, guys. Chill. Someone is trying to promote their blog. Click on the name. Craig needs to ignore this “scoop” it’s full o poop.

        But Monica, Girl, you are F-I-N-E. mmm hmmm.

      • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Dec 21, 2010 at 4:30 PM

        I dunno J5, this looks like a scoop and an ad ta boot! Plus this seems like it’s up Lenny’s alley.

      • jh0088 - Dec 21, 2010 at 4:46 PM

        Yeah, i have to agree, my first instinct was that she was looking for click throughs, but the tone of her comment is all wrong for that and she isn’t trolling any other posts on this site, which she’d do if she was really targeting us for mass numbers. My guess is that this is potentially on the level and she did a google search for Dysktra’s name and this popped up.

        That being said, the whole thing is definately suspicious from her end… but man, Lenny if you paid a hooker with a check, even if it was a good check that cleared, that’s the definition of stupid criminal bro.

      • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Dec 21, 2010 at 5:00 PM

        I guess we find out tomorrow????

  6. woodenulykteneau - Dec 21, 2010 at 1:42 PM

    No, Lenny, you didn’t get stupid overnight. You were born that way.

  7. Richard In Big D - Dec 21, 2010 at 6:00 PM

    In the eleven years Lenny Dykstra played in the bigs, he was paid approximately $30 million. He also had endorsement deals (I know that one for sure was Pony footwear), not to mention the other self promotional endeavors like the “Nails” poster. Even giving up 50% to the IRS, 10% to mangement/representation, and, here’s a stretch, tithing 10% to his favorite religious organization, that leaves $9 million to blow through. If he invested on the safe side, and gat a 5% return, that’s $450K a year for life. Being flat ass broke isn’t stupid, it’s a clear indication of him being brain-dead.

    • Utley's Hair - Dec 21, 2010 at 7:46 PM

      Well he was apparently listening to his own investment advice—look how well that worked out for others.

  8. monicafosterathome - Dec 21, 2010 at 10:41 PM

    No I am not trying to promote my blog and I’ going public with what this ass did to me. I was counting on that bad check being good for the holidays and now I can’t go home to visit my family over the holidays being that I have to repay the bank the amount of the check.

    I have the proof of the check and will be making a video for youtube about exactly what happened with this man. I’m out of the game and have nothing to lose and would rather be labeled as a “whore” for the rest of my life than have other women fall prey to this piece to this piece of shit.

    I am reporting that bad check to LA county and though how I earned it will always be seen as “questionable” I don’t care. Enough is enough of men with money thinking that they can treat women in alternative lines of work like garbage.

    Dykstra messed with the wrong little black woman in this situation because as long as I am breathing and have internet access I will be making sure that he NEVER hurts another woman again. You do NOT take advantage of those in life who have little to know way to defend themselves.

    Oh and by the way, I finally got him to pick up his phone tonight and he immediately said “call me tomorrow” and hung up on me after I called MULTIPLE times and sent multiple texts.

    Fucking coward with a tiny piece.

    • jhu1997 - Dec 22, 2010 at 5:46 AM

      I’m really sorry you were cheated and, assuming the story is true, I feel Dykstra deserves to have his name dragged around in the mud a bit.

      That said, holy crap, ground floor, Craig, you should be a hyperactive insomniac like me, because you have no idea what you’re missing on your own blog…

      • monicafosterathome - Dec 22, 2010 at 10:33 AM

        I’ll live and I’ll continue to move on in life – however considering that he can’t square up with myself and several other women of who he’s hired, contracted and in some cases sexually assaulted (a few of which are going after him legally and who have contacted me since I decided to post online about my unfortunate dealings with this jerk), I strongly suggest to the entire financial world to tell him to simply shut up and disappear.

        I made a video about what happened on

      • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Dec 22, 2010 at 10:41 AM

        Post bad check online!!! We need evidence! A

    • jfk69 - Dec 24, 2010 at 5:39 AM

      Time to get in touch with Deadspin. This story sounds better than Rex Ryans de feet story.

    • bdflatlander - Jan 26, 2011 at 1:15 PM


      I’m sorry you had the misfortune to encounter Lenny Dykstra. He is a complete scumbag who screws over everyone who deals with him.

      He also has no concept of personal responsibility. He blames everyone else for his problems, all of which are self-inflicted.

      I am glad that youhave posted about your experience with Dykstra. Hopefully some people will read your posts and will be forewarned about dealing with him.

      IMO Dykstra is mentally ill, maybe from too many steroids and running into the center field wall too many times.

  9. jfk69 - Dec 24, 2010 at 5:33 AM

    When Lenny turned up as a stock touter/broker for Cramer I knew the market and something was drastically wrong on Wall Street. At that point I moved to an all cash position and never looked back, when a year and half later the street imploded.
    Lenny is a confirmed degenerate gambler. Possibly a steroid abuser in his baseball career and a confirmed delusional liar in denial. I am surprised he hasn’t hung himself yet.

  10. bettoroffsingle - Dec 25, 2010 at 1:30 AM

    Wow, this is interestingI know Dykstra once crashed his car driving recklessly down here, used to crash into outfield walls to catch baseballs, and once lost $50,000.00 in a poker game, but had also heard of his entry into financial markets. Heard he had gone bankrupt, but an (alleged) bounced check to a HOOKER? This is the other half I find interesting.

    Do a search for MonicaF on and you’ll find Monica Foster’s ID on the stripper website. She posted as a former dancer turned “pornstar” (only in soaps and porn are they all “stars”), and hadn’t made references to escorting. What I find amusing here is that you’d thinnk someone who supposedly makes hundreds or THOUSANDS of dollars a night dancing or camming wouldn’t have Christmas “ruined” by ONE BAD CHECK. Wouldn’t she be a millionaire by now, or at least have five or six figures in the bank? Are these sex-industry workers just putting on a front, and REALLY need men’s money a LOT more than they let on? LOL

    As for Foster, she has NO CLASS. She had legal recourse: public humiliation over a debt is very shaky legal territory, even more so due to the “intimates” nature of the transaction. Yes, bouncing a check is a crime, but so is turning tricks. EVERY famous or wealthy man, or man with something to lose, should keep \in mind that these sex workers can violate our privacy anytime they want. Smart men wouldn’t give a dime to these women.

    More salaciousness:

    Stripperweb (where Monica posts) is apparently some federal STING operation, in which the Criminal Division of the US Department of Justice is Involved. For years, its main patron was Kevin Hendzel, a/k/a “The Other Owner,” a man whose translation-services company, ASET international, has a contract with the criminal division of the Department of Justice. Stripperweb is a repostiory of adult-industry crime, adn its ears just keep listening. Time after time, I have seen a dancer allude to illegal activity somewhere in the industry, and the bust to materialize months later. Given that strippers openly brag about tax evasion, underage dancing (that’s child sex trafficking), drug use, and prostitution in their clubs, it’s child’s play for the feds to lower the bom whenever they wish.

    IN September, 2008, a stripperweb user named “Dottie Rebel” claimed she was drugged and raped by “The Other Owner.” The site removed all the accusations, though TOO went back into hiding after that point. Other dancers surfaced to corrorborate Dottie’s story.

    As it relates to Monica, I’m surprised she’d post to such a site, and I think it’s terrible that she would invade her customers’ privacy, even the bad ones. Would she or any other sex-industry worker like to be “OUTED?” Maybe is sex-workers were not allowed to remain anonymous, they’d stop doing business with the thugs.

    Hey Ray Gordan,

    Why did you make comments on my youtube video and then delete them before I could approve them? Chicken?


    Strippers/dancers/escorts do not typically make thousands of dollars a night/week. We struggle just like everyone else – especially in this economy. I and other legitimate adult industry talents file our taxes. Maybe if you took the time to read my website Ray and it’s associated blog rather than attempting to sell your con of a book of which you “hypnotise women” (that made my day as being the most laughable thing I’ve ever seen) and tout yourself as the “original pickup artist” in (I actually know the “pick up artist”, Erik, who you have ripped off and I will be telling him about how you’re piggy backing on his franchise) you’d have an idea as to how the adult entertainment industry currently works (from stripping, to porn, to escorting).

    I made a mistake in dealing with Dykstra – unfortunately I had no clue who he was upon meeting him due to him giving me a false name. It wasn’t until later that I realized who he was and what the unfortunate outcome would be.

    I’ve learned my lesson from this situation and am making efforts to move forward with my life in a positive direction. I know I may have to deal with some legal issues at this stage, but at least I exposed this man to other women who may have been as easily conned as myself.

    Ray, for you to side with Dykstra simply makes you a bigger ass than he is. He’s conned several established legitimate business entities and owes thousands if not millions in debt. He can “sue” me for defamation if he wants, but the moment he comes after me and the other women he’s stolen from, is the same instance that he will most likely go to jail for all of his other wrong doings.

    Bring it.

  13. monicafosterathome - Dec 29, 2010 at 1:07 PM

    I just received a copy of the check from Lenny Dykstra from my bank. I will be posting it today online. Since you wanted the proof – I got it.

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Jan 4, 2011 at 10:46 AM

      You are my lady of the night heroine (or is it heroin?).

  14. monicafosterathome - Jan 11, 2011 at 6:18 PM

    The accusations from this woman are most likely TRUE. I just dealt with that man Dec 13, 2010 and he’s a racist, psychotic, drug addict who can’t deal with the fact that he’s a HAVE NOT who used to be a HAVE but never will be a HAVE again.

    This woman needs to file a police report against him with the LAPD like I did. It’s not about getting money – it’s about creating a papertrail on this jerk so he can’t continue to hurt and con women.

    MANY women have come forward.
