Here is some really good advice from former Phil Lenny Dykstra:
In essence, my strategy is to stay disciplined, regardless of the situation. This approach has served me well throughout my career, be it baseball, my various businesses or investing. Discipline allowed me to develop into the consummate leadoff hitter. I saw more pitches than anybody in the history of Major League Baseball during the magical 1993 season with the National League champion Philadelphia Phillies. This was directly attributable to the fact that I approached each at-bat with a plan. That plan had to be flexible in order to respond to the situation dictated by the scoreboard.
Man, every Phils leadoff hitter should read that paragraph before each game. If he did, he may or may not become a good hitter but he sure would have tremendous success in the stock market. That’s right, Lenny’s talking about investing and his comments come from his weekly column on thestreet.com. Lenny Dysktra, ballplayer turned entrepreneur, is now in the business of giving financial advice. Oh man, that is hilarious! What he should be doing is talking to his other former team about discipline. Maybe then the Mets would realize that Billy Wagner’s making suckers out of them.
