Former three-time All-Star and 1986 World Series champion Lenny Dykstra has never been shy in opening up about his performance-enhancing drug use during his career.
He was named in the infamous Mitchell Report in 2007, and has acknowledged his PED use during his career since then. In the Mitchell Report, Dykstra is reported to have purchased Deca-Durabolin, Dianabol, and testosterone after the 1993 season. On Tuesday in an interview with Colin Cowherd of FOX Sports, Dykstra said he used to put HGH in his cereal:

Here’s more of what Dykstra told Cowherd during the interview:
“I put [HGH] in my cereal man. It was in my cereal. We’re talking about the good stuff … We’re talking about the difference of making $30 million or getting a real job and working and making $60,000. What, do you want the guy next to you taking them and you’re not going to take them?”
Dykstra has opened up to Cowherd on past issues before. Back in October of 2015, he told Cowherd that he had hired a private investigator to blackmail umpires during his career:
“I said ‘I need these umpires,’ so what do I do? I just pulled a half-million bucks out and hired a private investigation team. Their blood is just as red as ours. Some of them like women, some of them like men, some of them gamble. Some of them do whatever … It wasn’t a coincidence do you think that I led the league in walks the next two years, was it? Fear does a lot to a man.”
