More slammertime for disgraced baseball star Lenny Dykstra ... Nails has just been sentenced to 3 months in L.A. County Jail for allegedly holding a knife to a woman's throat.

Dykstra pleaded no contest to charges of assault with a deadly weapon and lewd conduct this morning ... for incidents involving women he lured to his home by posting ads for a housekeeper on Craigslist.com.

Officials tell us ... when the women would arrive to his home, Dykstra would inform them the job required them to give him a massage ... and then he would expose himself.

Dykstra allegedly ran the scheme at least 6 times ... and during one of the incidents, officials say he held a knife against a woman's throat and forced her to massage him.

In exchange for his plea, Dykstra was sentenced to 3 months in jail and 3 years probation. 

Dykstra's no stranger to the pokey ... just last month, he was sentenced to 3 years in prison after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement.

My God, Lenny, what the hell happened to you??? I remember your glory days on the Philadelphia Phillies Baseball Team.
Never thought you'd end up like this. Get some help, dude. You obviously need it. I can see why you are friends with Charlie Sheen if you are doing this kind of stupid sh*t. It's right up Charlies ally. Shame on you.

Must be hard going through life with absolutely no purpose or value, just killing time until death comes knocking.

who cares    

He should have already been serving time. I mean if it were you or I we wouldn't get the star treatment at sentencing. He was charged with drugs not to long ago to and obviously that slap on that hands wasn't enough. If it were anyone else they be in prison for 5 years.
