Money, power, respect: Lenny Dykstra doesn’t really have any of those things (allegedly, but he does have a passel of stories about rock star L I V I N and a World Series ring (and a couple felony convictions), and that’s pretty much why we sought out the dubious charms of Mr. Dykstra’s book House of Nails: A Memoir of Life on the Edge. (We think. We can’t really remember, and after reading this, nothing makes sense anymore.)
NOTE: This isn’t really a baseball book, at least not the way we talk about it (the bulk of the book itself actually is pitch-by-pitch recountings of baseball games, but even we have our limits), so don’t be afraid.
NOTE 2: We hope this episode finds you well! These are tough times for all of us, so please keep your chin up the best you can.
NOTE 3: This is our first-ever “social isolation” podcast so please bear with us through the occasionally rough sound quality. We’ll get better at this.
