lenny-dykstra.jpgFormer major league center fielder and hustling enthusiast Lenny Dykstra has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The filing, which was done on July 7, claims that Dykstra has no more than $50,000 in assets and between $10 and $50 million worth of liabilities.

I'm not a mathematician, but that doesn't sound like a good combination.

Dykstra hit .281 in a 12-year pro career, helping the New York Mets win the 1986 World Series and finished second in the 1993 National League MVP voting while with the Philadelphia Phillies.
