— Days Without Shea —

These are bad days for ex-Met players too.

Lenny Dykstra was officially arrested and charged with bankruptcy fraud today. According to reports, Lenny:

"Was charged with bankruptcy fraud for allegedly selling items from his $18 million mansion, the Department of Justice said on Friday. Dykstra, who filed for bankruptcy in July 2009, allegedly removed, destroyed and sold property that was part of the bankruptcy estate without the permission of the trustee, according to the DoJ."

Back in September, 2009, after Nails had filed for bankruptcy, his creditors accused him of stealingitems out of his own house. As we posted back then:

Ex-Mets star Lenny Dykstra, after declaring bankruptcy, swiped and sold property from his $18 million California mansion to cover his living expenses, one of his creditors charged.

The 46-year-old ex-center fielder was "in the process of stripping furnishings, fixtures and equipment" from the sprawling home, according to court papers filed by Index Investors LLC.

The company is trying to foreclose on the Thousand Oaks, Calif., mansion previously owned by hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky.

The legal papers alleged that Dykstra was selling the property - including a $40,000 imported La Cornue stove - "doubtlessly to fuel his lifestyle at the expense of creditors."

Guess we might not be seeing Nails at the 1986 Mets 25th anniversary parties this year.

On a different note, You can't tell me the Mets are NOT dumping tickets on Stub Hub.


Who else in their right mind would buy all 24 seats in the row to a game and the sell them for $35 off face value???
