10 Ratchet MLB Player Retirements That Kenny Powers Should Put to Shame Image via Los Angeles Times

Lenny Dykstra

After calling it quits in 1996, Lenny Dykstra faced a ton of legal problems. Some of the notable ones include the time he attempted to flip Wayne Gretzky's $17.5 million home, but eventually filed for mortgage fraud when the house went to foreclosure. A couple months later, it was discovered that Dykstra was hiding and destroying homes in an attempt to get rich quick and was hit with a bankruptcy fraud charge. 

The man nicknamed Nails also paid off a housekeeper on Craigslist, only to threaten her with a knife to her throat when she didn't accept his sexual demands. Oh, and let's not forget his upwards of 25 counts of grand theft auto and possession of cocaine. We can't help but wonder if "Walk Like an Egyptian" was playing in the background when Dykstra got caught.
