-Poor Lenny Dykstra. It seems he has hit rock bottom as his mansion is now up for sale in California for $14.9 million. “Nails”, as he was so affectionately called here in Philly for years, left the house a mess according to Reuters. Dog feces and raw sewage were some of the items left behind by the former centerfielder.
Dykstra is going through a financial free fall, as he owes nearly $13 million on the property and is being nailed (pun intended) by 20 different lawsuits following his bankruptcy. Check out a great piece in ESPN the Magazine about his so-called business that was making millions. Tough fall for someone who was once a tough dude.
-Noah Lowry’s throwing session has been pushed back to allow for his twice-surgically repaired arm to heal a bit more before putting it on display. The 29-year-old Lowry has missed the last two full seasons with a neuromuscular disorder, but is angling for a new job after things went south with the Giants. You can read Paul Hagen’s article from the Daily News regarding the details of that.
Again, Lowry would be a nice pickup should he sign a minor league deal. Say it with me: you can never have to many arms.
-Ryan Howard is in Clearwater. The Phillies cleanup hitter has been working with Sam Perlozzo, according to the Inquirer, and looks even more slender than a year ago. Roy Halladay has reportedly been working out at the Phillies spring training complex as well, which is a quick drive from his offseason home in Oldsmar, FL. Good to see the $20 million men getting a head start on what should be another incredible season for both.
