    Lenny always struck me as a guy would might have done time if not for being a pro athlete. He was a hard guy not to like though, if I remember right he slid headfirst into first base on his first ever hit as a major leaguer.

    He started an investment company that bankrupted a lot of people..including himself that led to this I think. Just add him to the list of former met players who have failed in society.

    He was ALWAYS this guy. Pure punk. Now he just happens to be a broken down old convict punk. But always a punk.

    I guess I never remember him as a bad person growing up, but I did like the way he played. It's a shame to see how some of these guys turn out after they're done playing the game.

    His investment company was huge at one time, one of the most profitable and respected companies around -- until the downturn. Then everything went south, just like it did for a lot of people in that profession. But he was worth several hundred million at one point, all of it on paper, unfortunately.

    Yep, that's why games aren't played on paper (couldn't resist).
