SHARE Video: Former Phillies teammates bitterly clash during sports roast

Former Major Leaguers Mitch Williams and Lenny Dykstra clashed during what was supposed to be a lighthearted sports roast in Philadelphia, and the must-see video of the affair leaked out on Tuesday.

Williams, a former Cub, blew a save in the 1993 World Series, and Dykstra has apparently never forgiven him for it. The two players have had history that goes back ever since, according to USA Today, and it came to a head during an event on April 23.

Be warned, the language in the video is very much not safe for work:

If you can’t click the video right now, here’s a quick, cleaned-up summary:

Dykstra told Williams that prison was like a “fantasy camp compared to playing with you, dude.”

Dykstra then went into Williams’ stepping down from his role as an MLB Network analyst after being combative with umpires at a youth baseball tournament.

“How the [expletive] does somebody get hired by MLB Network, a dream job,” Dykstra said from the podium. “And found a way to [expletive] that up. Just like he found a way to [expletive] up the World Series. What haven’t you [expletive] up? I just want to know what you haven’t [expletive] up?”

Williams responded by pointing out some of Dykstra’s own problems, which includes his conviction and imprisonment for grand theft auto and filing a false financial statement.

“I have five kids that I have never stolen a dollar from,” Williams said. “Now do you want to start talking about [expletive] things up?”
