Big League Stew - MLB

If you haven't had the chance to check out the profile of Lenny Dykstra on this month's HBO Real Sports, make sure to do so as soon as possible. I'm not sure how our country went a decade without having Nails in our collective conscience, but it's a better place now that he's back, front and center.

What's more is that he now has sheik-type money after devising his own investing system. Although he's only 45, he looks about 20 years older and speaks like it. Try to watch the piece and not walk away working on your Dykstra imitation for the rest of the day.

Oh, and he still hates Mitch Williams. [Bugs & Cranks]
