Maybe you shouldn't take financial advice from Lenny Dykstra

The Mets were officially eliminated from playoff contention last night, at the hands of Pedro Martinez and the Phillies.  As if the season couldn't have been bad enough, this just put a rotten cherry on the worst sundae I've ever eaten.  The offseason officially begins for Mets fans, though we still have a couple more weeks of rooting against the Phillies and Yankees.

Earlier this season, I posted a link to ex-Mets OF Lenny Dykstra's financial column for The Street.  Sports Illustrated has posted word that Lenny is broke, and is auctioning off his 1986 World Series ring to raise money.  So much for limiting downside risk, dude.
