    Default Lenny Dykstra Sentenced to 3 Years

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46637437...DA1c0.facebook

    I remember the story Bernie Goldberg did on Dykstra about 10 years ago that showed a very astute business man. He was making waves in the market as someone to pay attention to when making investments. He had turned his baseball earnings into a substantial fortune.

    A few years later it came crumbling down and Goldberg did a follow up of Dykstra at the same California mansion that was then empty as Dykstra faced foreclosure, disgraced by some of his shady business deals that lost people, including himself, fortunes.

    Here is the latest as he prepares for a prison term.

    The thing about Lenny is he has an endearing personality that was exhibited in both of the Goldberg interviews. Of course, we all know that many sociopaths have that characteristic.

    Edit: After looking at the 2nd interview, maybe that endearing part isn't that accurate.
