Lenny Dykstra: Out of Prison, and Still Headstrong

A BTF favorite is back… and he’s ready to take your money.

“I became addicted to money,” he conceded. “Money was my drug, and a few other ones, too. But whatever. This is a pretty entertaining interview, isn’t it?”

OC Register: Garrett Richards misses out on All-Star Game…again

Garrett Richards came up empty in another opportunity to make the All-Star team tonight, when Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney was named to replace David Price.

Price, one of the players originally selected for the team, had his start pushed back from Saturday to Sunday because of an illness, knocking him out of Tuesday’s All-Star Game. Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell, in conjunction with major league officials, had the discretion to replace Price.

They took Rodney, who leads the AL with 27 saves and has a 1.98 ERA.

Richards is 11-2 with a 2.55 ERA, including 7-0 with a 1.27 ERA over his past eight starts.

Richards did not make the initial All-Star roster, when he was overlooked by both the players—who voted for five starters—and Farrell, who picked three. Richards then finished second to the Chicago White Sox Chris Sale in the “final vote.” Price’s illness offered him another shot, and he came up empty again.
