Big leaguers can sure hold onto a big-league grudge.
A video has emerged of former Philadelphia Phillies teammates Lenny Dykstra and Mitch Williams resuming their longtime feud at a comedy roast. Only this wasn't funny in the one-liner way. It was a serious expletive-filled argument between two guys who can't stand each other and have no problem slinging accusations in public.
In other words, super entertaining!
A bit of background: Dykstra blamed Williams for losing the 1993 World Series after the relief pitcher blew a 6-5 Phillies lead in the ninth inning by surrendering a three-run, game-winning home run to Toronto's Joe Carter. That clinched the series for the Blue Jays.
According to Yahoo!, the two had a confrontation at a baseball card signing in 2013, and Dykstra has ripped Williams in a few outlets, including the New York Times.
At last month's Sports Roast Philadelphia, however, the animosity appeared to rise to a whole new level. Dykstra, who spent time behind bars for bankruptcy fraud, managed to deliver one of the few jokes in this awkward exchange. He told Williams, "Prison was like a bleepin' fantasy camp compared to playing behind you."
If these two were putting us on (not likely), it would be the best acting job ever.
