The ‘86 Legendary Met update of the day comes from our buddy Dwight Gooden who is taking full advantage of his stint in Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab.
BMF got a call from Dwight thursday afternoon direct from the Pasadena Rehab Facility. If you watch the show you know patients are given limited access to a house phone and as a dedicated fan I could instantly picture the exact spot Doc was sitting while we spoke - it was undoubtedly a double take “is this really my life” moment for me.
He’s already through the detox portion of the experience and has now “kicked” his heavy Ambien addiction.
Doc sounded as upbeat as I’ve ever heard him and was excited about the work he’s been able to get done with Dr. Drew. Part of the CelebRehab program is family members and sometimes friends will visit.
Doc’s 24 year old son Dwight Jr, whose known as Lil Doc in the world of rap, visited his father this past week.
But the real surprise visitor was none other than ex-86 Met teammate Lenny Dykstra!
Holy Crap I can’t wait for this to air!
How bout Justin Turner making a late offensive push with 2 hits and 3 RBI including a 2B off Papelbon and the BoSox.
Word is cuts are a comming on Friday so don’t be surprised if Castillo and/or Perez are sent packing.
Sounds like D-Murph will be a utility guy which means he is out of the running in starting 2B battle.
Gotta say I still find it strange that Luis Hernandez is the leading candidate…
