Two huge wins for Jim Cramer-endorsed investor Lenny Dykstra today.

Dykstra was tossed in the clink this week on 23 felony counts, including grand theft auto and drug charges, and he needs $50,000 - 10 percent of the $500,000 bail - to get released..."Lenny's people then approached two wealthy members of the Philadelphia sports community – but they weren't willing to fork over any cash either," reports TMZ. But today producer Jonathan Heap stepped forward, saying he'll help spring the former outfielder, who became a car-wash king and even got folks to believe he was an investment guru - before he blew a supposed $50 million fortune and filing for bankruptcy, claiming monstrous amounts of debt. Heap's explanation: "Everyone deserves a second chance." He might have another reason: He's producing a movie about Dykstra's life, says TMZ.
