Lenny Dykstra is a free man

Jun 21, 2013, 5:02 PM EST

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

While there is a lower class I am in it; while there is a criminal element I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free!

Former All-Star outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been released from prison in California after serving time for bankruptcy fraud. Federal Bureau of Prisons records show the 50-year-old has been freed. A message left for his attorney Christopher Dybwad was not immediately returned Friday.

Somewhere in California right now Lenny Dykstra is trying to convince someone of something. It could be anything from a real estate deal to what they should order for dinner. But whatever it is, that person is thinking “well, he seems like such a nice guy, I suppose …”

    Excellent addition to society.

    Maybe he’s trying to convince Jamie-Lynn Sigler that he’s innocent.

    Best of luck nails, I hope you stay straight.

    6 1/2 months of a 3 year term. Did he share a cell with George Bluth Sr.?

      No, he’s just in California and that’s just how it goes.

        What’s the going rate for homicide? A small fine and community service? Not to get political, but it’s a good thing we keep those dangerous pot users locked up!

        I used this reference in an earlier post on Dykstra.

        Read the dossier, the acts of an inherently evil man. For a single person who had no kind of following or help, just look at the crimes committed. Look at the victims, the ages, the savagery of his methods, and consider this:

        After 23 years, if not for lymphoma, he would still be alive in a California prison today, getting three squares and a bed, and still trying to appeal his sentence down. Especially if you read his excerpts from the trial, over two decades he remained a ward in the state of California.

        So really, nothing would surprise me in the law enforcement and judicial processes out there.

        Few things disturb me, but that is indeed one of them. It’s always interesting how these cowards begin showing their true colours when their own death becomes a reality.

    He will wind up back in jail

  6. tanzkommandant - Jun 21, 2013 at 7:58 PM

    His lawyer’s name is Dybwad?

    I remember that time he convinced Mark Wohlers to throw him a fastball in the 10th inning of game 5 of the ’93 NLCS.

    I will give him a week topps before he goes back

    • Anoesis - Jun 22, 2013 at 1:14 AM

      Topps has a penitentiary series now? What kind of gum do those come with?

      • anxovies - Jun 22, 2013 at 8:31 AM

        Don’t chew it, there might be a file in it.

    Week and a half Donruss.

      Awesome! Love it.

    He’ll be back in court within the year. Count on it. He’s a toad.

  11. badintent - Jun 21, 2013 at 10:30 PM
