Lenny Dysktra appears headed to prison. Here's the news story, via the Associated Press ...

Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been sentenced to three years in a California state prison in a grand theft auto case.

Dykstra was sentenced Monday after a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge refused to allow him to withdraw a no-contest plea.

Prosecutors say Dykstra and two others tried to lease and then sell high-end cars from several auto dealerships by claiming credit through a phony business.

Dykstra also faces federal bankruptcy charges and is scheduled to stand trial this summer.
