Baseball just might have another scandal on its hands.

Former Met and Philly stalwart Lenny Dykstra claims he dug up dirt on umpires to shrink his strike zone. Dykstra's had a few brushes with the law, he says delicately. If it's just his word alone, I dunno. Presumably he has something to back it up?

Note to the already-suffering Paul Zummo: he allegedly started blackmailing umpires whilst in Philadelphia.

This will bear watching.

    Slacker. He couldn't have done that whilst a Met?

    In all seriousness, I'm gonna guess that's almost completely full of moose droppings.

  2. Yeah, that's why I hedged. According to the most detailed news story on ESPN, there's no mention of corroborating evidence.
