Former Mets and Phillies centerfielder Lenny Dykstra continues to be open about his performance-enhancing drug use during his 12-year career.

A three-time All-Star and 1986 World Series champion, Dykstra was named in the Mitchell Report in 2007 as a steroid user, and has since acknowledged using PEDs during his career. In an interview with Fox Sports’s Colin Cowherd on Tuesday, Dykstra said he used HGH, claiming he put it “in [his cereal.”

“I put [HGH] in my cereal man. It was in my cereal,” Dykstra told Cowherd. “We're talking about the good stuff ... We're talking about the difference of making $30 million or getting a real job and working and making $60,000. What, do you want the guy next to you taking them and you're not going to take them?"

Dykstra, who’s run into numerous legal troubles since his retirement, is no stranger to such colorful public statements. Last year, Dykstra told Cowherd he hired private investigators so he could blackmail umpires.
