Thumbnail image for lenny-dykstra.jpgIf you're like me, you've often wondered how much much Lenny Dykstra's 1986 World Series ring would set you back.

The answer: $56,762.50.

That's what the winning bidder, a Queens, N.Y. collector, will pay after winning an auction for the jeweled tribute to the Mets' seven-game victory over the Red Sox.

Dykstra filed for bankruptcy protection in July, saying he owed more than $31 million and had around $50,000 in assets.

In the old days they would put nuts like him in the nuthouse...now there are no nuthouses, nuts like him are left to wander and beg among us now. Guess he'd be classified as one of the more aggressive panhandlers.

Cramer, cant you help him since you sicked your hero on us and his phony investing "strategy"...just like his hitting strategy, swing at, or bet on, everything. You're bound to get some winners right?
