Lenny Dykstra may try to lam it to Mexico? OK. I could see that.

Former Major League baseball player Lenny Dykstra appears Los Angeles Superior court for an arraignment in San Fernando, California Reuters

Lenny Dykstra may have actually had the first rational thought in years, and sadly, it’s likely going to get his bail revoked.

According to Larry Brown Sports, Dykstra’s former business manager withdrew the $30,000 bail he posted because he is fearful that Dykstra plans on leaving the county for Mexico. He basically just thinks that Dykstra is a liar and, wisely, doesn’t want to lose his money if Dykstra bolts. Smart guy.  Of course when he withdrew it, Dykstra started tweeting anit-semitic stuff because, well, he’s Lenny Dykstra and he could do anything at this point and we’d all nod and say “yep.”

For Dkystra’s  own sake, though? Except for that one time I pointedly told a client* that Belize is nice this time of year, I’d never advise anyone to flee justice.  But really, why shouldn’t he go to Mexico?  It’s not like he’s got a snowball’s chance of making anything of his life here.

Of course he wouldn’t be able to hack it there either because, last I checked, Mexico is no more tolerant of lying, thieving nogoodniks than anyplace else. But at least then Nails would have some moments of hope while he was trying to make it across the border.

*Client is due to be released from the Ohio Penitentiary in 2024.

    Nails has been watching too much Eastbound and down, methinks.

    Yeah, to move to Mexico, you have to prove you’ll be a contributor to society. They don’t just allow anyone to immigrate to their country, that only happens to the good ole’ USA.

    Let him go and hire Dog the Bounty Hunter to chase him down. The new Running Man show is around the corner.

    Out of curiosity, would there have been legal ramifications for you if it was ever proven that you advised a client to flee jurisdiction, or only if you actually helped him/her do it?

      Oh, I’m assuming that a lawyer who advises such a thing would, at the very least, be disbarred. If there was any actual material assistance to the fugitive, I’m sure some sort of conspiracy or aiding and abetting charge could be leveled.

    “Jew Gold” made me think of Southpark..

    If Dykstra took his show to Mexico, in a couple of years (or less) we’d be reading about how he was found dead in an alley or motel room. Other countries aren’t as forgiving of sham artists as we are.

      Couple of years?? I give it a couple of months max.

    What has Mexico done to deserve Dykstra?

    For what it’s worth, here’s an interview I did with Lenny’s former business manager, Dan Herman.
