As Lenny Dykstra works on a memoir, he apparently is determined to set the record straight about his past legal troubles.

Writer A.J. Daulerio posted an email to Ratter that Dykstra reportedly sent him last week concerning a 2009 article he wrote highlighting the former New York Met and Philadelphia Phillie's reported financial irresponsibility.

Sent at 3 a.m. on Friday with the subject "Get it right -- you have a duty and obligation to the get the facts before reporting reckless information -- see below," Dykstra maintains that the story, albeit six years old, contained false information that was irresponsibly reported.

Among his legal woes, the former three-time All-Star and 1986 World Series champion with the Mets served over six months in prison from 2012-13 after pleading guilty to felony charges of money laundering, concealment of assets, and bankruptcy fraud.

Daulerio says that he has contacted Dykstra multiple times, per his request to set the record straight, but has yet to hear from the former center fielder.
