Good morning, here’s a picture of Lenny Dykstra’s son
Posted by Tug Haines at 9:04 am ET 24 Comments

Sup y’all. I know I haven’t posted since August 2010, but that’s not entirely my fault, now is it?

I’ve been a little bit out of the loop on Phillies news lately. Right now, I’m in Myrtle Beach, SC, just another stop in my minor league road trip throughout the eastern United States. So when the Phillies game is on the radio, I’m typically at a ballgame in some remote corner of the country. I suppose I could just snipe the beat writers’ stuff off Twitter and rush to post them here, but I have integrity, believe it or not.

For instance, last night, I watched some High-A ball at BB&T Coastal Park. The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (TEX) hosted the Potomac Nationals (WAS) in a game just two minutes longer than that abortion in Arizona, which is pretty incredible in any level of ball, let alone Class-A Advanced, where the pitching is wild and the defense is a, um, work in progress.

Starting at second base for the Potomac Nationals was none other that Cutter Dykstra, 54th pick of the 2008 draft and the spitting image of his father. Hell of an athlete too. I never saw a little white guy jump so high.

As I stumble across little tidbits that the loyal readers of The Fightins might be interested in, I’ll be sure to put them up here. In the meantime, I’ll be driving through Georgia on my way to Mississippi by way of Tennessee, and blogging about everything else I see in the world of minor league baseball.

    jesus bankruptcy, he has more crazy in those eyes than poppa

  8. Yeah, that face has crazy written all over it. It doesn’t take Maury Povich to confirm that Dykstra is the father.

    Damn it Jim! I’m a doctor not a miracle worker!

  10. Wes Chamberlain says:

    I had no idea Fightins was back until right now. I dropped some acid like an hour ago, so I should probably wait like 9 hours to make sure I’m not hallucinating this

    I just LOVE his hair

    So Cutter.

  21. TN Phils Phan says:

    The sad part is that his Dad probably will never get to see him play!
