There was an amazing segment on real sports (HBO) detailing how Lenny went from ex-player to very successful businessman even though he could not and does not read well. So wealthy he had his own plane, mansion, very expensive cars, etc. It was truly an amazing story of how a guy with grit and determination and natural smarts could achieve greatness after baseball with very little money from baseball. He also was shown to be the hard ass pushy kind of person who is willing to run you over if you get in the way. Just like in baseball.

That was last year. They did a part II last month which told a much different story. It seems that the market downturn and some bad decisions has left him broke and owing many people a great deal of money today. It left the viewer with the impression that he was not the kind of person anyone would want to be around at all. Only politeness as a member of this board prevents me from the adjectives needed to describe him and his behavior toward others. Piece of.............

Nails is a real piece of work alright. His whole paper kingdom was built on smoke and mirrors. From everything I've read about him, this whole thing couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
