    *Nov 24 - 00:05*

    It has been reported several times over the past year or so — most recently in that story I linked from yesterday’s New York Times — that Lenny Dykstra took his son Cutter Dykstra’s $700,000 signing bonus, “invested it” and subsequently lost it.

    I don’t write too many straight game recaps outside of And That Happened, but this one — a 6-2 win by the Cards over the Mets — struck me for a couple of reasons. First, because it may very well have been Carlos Beltran‘s last game as a Met in Citi Field. The Mets go…
