Today, the Philadelphia Daily News has a story about Lenny Dykstra’s emergence as a financial guru. The story is an absolute and total rip-off of the story that The New Yorker wrote about Dykstra in March, but it does contain a few new nuggets.

One thing I found particularly interesting:

Dykstra writes a “Nails on the Numbers” newsletter for the in which he recommends option plays for better than 1,000 investors for an annual subscription fee of $1,000. So far, “Dykstra is 83-0 in his calls on “Nails on the Numbers,” which is to say you would have earned better than $200,000 if you played along with him on”

Lenny Dykstra is a stock market savant. What a world we live in.

    I’m not sure if everyone’s seen the HBO Real Sports piece on Nails but it is a spectacle within itself… The part where he talks about Rick Dempsey “brown-nosing” an umpire and asking dempsey and the umpire if they can read the scoreboard to see where it says he’s hitting .400 in June… Classic Nails. If you haven’t seen it I suggest you try to find it…

  2. i think you mean nails made from steroids.

  3. Is is options trading prowess the reason he’s filing for bankruptcy?
