What I Read: Of Marinovich and Dykstra

Here are two well written sports features you need to read. ESPN.com’s Mike Fish breaks down the shady business practices of former Mets and Phillies star Lenny Dykstra (checkout Deadspin’s take), while Esquire profiles former Raiders quarterback/drug addict Todd Marinovich. Both stories work in that they lead the reader through  complex trip into their subjects’ souls, and they have that Rashomon quality where various source viewpoints come together to build a sense of truth with out actually declaring truth.
