Lenny Dykstra -- No More Help From Charlie Sheen

6/10/2011 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Financial disaster Lenny Dykstra is on a mission to raise enough cash to post bail -- hitting up Charlie Sheen and a bunch of other rich people he knows -- but so far, he's striking out big-time.

Sources connected to the former MLB great tell TMZ ... Lenny's people are scrambling behind the scenes to come up with $50,000 -- 10% of the $500,000 bail price -- so they can spring Lenny from an L.A. jail  where he's been stewing since he was booked on 23 felony charges earlier this week.

We're told Dykstra's right-hand guy tried to set up a meeting with Lenny's pal Charlie Sheen -- who helped bail Lenny out of jail earlier this year -- but Charlie's assistant turned him away.

Lenny's people then approached two wealthy members of the Philadelphia sports community -- but they weren't willing to fork over any cash either.

Since they can't score a check, Lenny's people are now toying with the idea of throwing a celebrity fundraiser -- in the hopes some of Dykstra's friends like Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden and Sheen will donate their time for the cause.

Meantime, Dykstra is scheduled to go in front of a judge today -- where he's expected to ask for a reduction in bail ... but with Lenny's history of legal trouble, we're guessing it ain't gonna happen.

LOL OMG...Let's have a party and raise some money to get a dirty rotten fraud out of jail? Damn, Americans are really screwed up. How about having a party to raise money for innocent American babies that have costly needs, and let the greedy, selfish, lying, stealing, cheating grown adults rot in jail.

yeah now I'm sure that group might be able to raise maybe 50.00 to help out if they had a fundraiser,if they all are not arrested on some outstanding warrant themselves while attending

Just goes to show you who your real friends are... they are there when your breaking the law and enjoying whatever you had to give to them while you were doing it - but truly when the chips are down... they are gone. Lesson in life - you are your only best friend!!!

Well, finally - we have unanimous agreement on a posting:

1. Dykstra is a d-bag who deserves the crap he's going through now.

2. Those people who post ads for merchandise in the comments section are skumbag trolls who were never loved by their mothers.

I mean, I'm assuming we all agree on 2.

Look at this guy, everyone.
Because there are going to be thousands of more just like him when the stock market crashes in the next eighteen months or so.

Good riddance! That's one less shady s***bag off the streets. Now we just have to get 80% of the rest of you off the streets and we should be in good shape.
