Pretty descriptive headline, right?

While we were out doing whatever it was we were doing, it sounds as if a fight was only narrowly avoided on Saturday at the Granite Run Mall between members of the 1993 National League champion Philadelphia Phillies during an autograph signing.

Philliedelphia was the first one of the first sites get something up, linking to this post from a Philly INK Signings Facebook fan page:

As nice as it was to meet everyone and get some graphs, the highlight of the day was clearly Dutch stopping Mitch Williams from attacking Lenny Dykstra. Would love to know what that 20 year disagreement was about.

Yikes. Dykstra, who is totally off the deep end and was only just recently released from prison, has long been critical of Williams for -- what else? -- the last pitch of the 1993 World Series.

An interview with NBC10's John Clark from 2011 paints a clear picture of the Dude's unclear mind. From Phillies Phollowers:

During the interview, Dykstra talks about the possibility of him being assassinated by a bank, tells his critics “suck my d*ck” and even compares himself to Ghandi.  You cannot make this stuff up.

It gets worse when he starts talking about Charlie Sheen.  Dykstra calls Sheen “focused.”  He also blames Sheen’s condition on “medication” and says most of it is a “joke.”

But my favorite Dykstra moment comes when he blasts Mitch Williams, whom he says he hates.  Why?  Because, according to Dykstra, “He lost the World Series,” and put Dykstra through “torture” as a result.

But it sounds like, judging from Philly INK's tweets Dykstra wasn't the aggressor in this case. Fightin for Philly rounded up these tweets:

From what we understand, Williams was actually there for a separate event . It's unclear how close they actually came to blows, or what constitutes "attacking" in this case. But let's just say the guy who's fighting brain cancer had to stop at least one guy who's brain dead from getting into it.

I can't wait until Jayson Werth and Shane Victorino get into a bro fight 20 years from now at the Oxford Valley Mall.
