Lenny Dykstra claims he hired PI's to help blackmail umps

To get better calls

In a shockingly forthcoming interview with Fox’s Colin Cowherd Tuesday, former Phillies star Lenny Dykstra admitted that he hired private investigators to dig up dirt on Major League umpires in order to give himself an advantage.
“I said ‘I need these umpires,’ so what do I do? I just pulled a half-million bucks out and hired a private investigation team. Their blood is just as red as ours. Some of them like women, some of them like men, some of them gamble. Some of them do whatever … It wasn’t a coincidence do you think that I led the league in walks the next two years, was it? Fear does a lot to a man.

‘Hey, so did you cover last night?’ He called a strike. ‘Oh I don’t think you heard me. Did you cover the spread last night?'

This is old news - he said the same thing on Philadelphia radio over a year ago.

It amazes me that people still listen to Cowherd's obnoxious nonsensical rants, talk about a puffed up ego.

That doesn't sound like the best ROI, but maybe I'm wrong.

If the 93 Phils had won games 6 and 7, it would have been enough ROI for me.

I still remember sitting in front of my TV, for like an hour, after the Game 6 loss. If only Fregosi had left Mason in to pitch the 8th inning rather than going to way-too-old Larry Anderson, then they Blue Jays lineup wouldn't have been turned over and then Mitch Williams would've been facing the bottom of the lineup rather than the top of it in the 9th inning. We get through that game and the Series was our's - Schilling was going in Game 7 and there's no way he was being beaten that year in a Game 7. And all because Fregosi couldn't have left Roger Mason in to pitch after looking great in the 7th. Oh well.

Oh, and yes, unbelievably shocking that Lenny Dykstra was a douchebag. Next we'll find out that Bill Cosby likes to drug women for sex. :rofl:

Any real Phils fan sat in shock after Joe Carter.

It actually still hurts. It was our Buckner moment.

Even though that was a clubhouse of amphetamines and anabolic steroids, God I loved that team like no other.

It sucked big time. But blowing that big lead in Game 4 ( the 15-14 home loss) actually hurt worse.

Yes, that didn't help either. That wouldv'e made Game 6 just a do or die game for the Jays with Schilling still pitching again in Game 7. Yup, definitely a WS that got away from us.

I was sitting over 3rd base in the 500 level for this. What a moment.

I love the look on Fregosi's face when he finally leaves the dugout. All relief; no joy. :lol:

Me and BHBK were sitting 3rd row from the top in the right field 700 level. Still my best live sporting memory of all time. Just ahead of the time I was at the Vet for the Eagles win over the cowboys where Barry Switzer twice went for it on 4th and 1 from inside his own 30 late in the game. Good times.

Lenny Dykstra Would Like To Drop Darling

Darling made a claim that Lenny went full racist on Oil Can Boyd during game 3 of the 1986 World Series.

Dykstra added that he wouldn’t say anything to Darling if he saw him right now, but instead “drop him like a red-headed f–king stepchild.”

In your defense, how could you not? He was very likable when he's on your team. :nod:

Yes, I was blissfully unaware of how much a POS he was in real life. On the field, he was a 100% effort guy of course. We loved that guy.
