Lenny Dykstra and Mitch Williams had a super uncomfortable confrontation at a Philly Sports Roast

Former Phillies Mitch Williams and Lenny Dykstra appeared on stage together at "Philly Sports Roast." The roast got a little too toasty, because these dudes genuinely despise one another.This will make your skin crawl:

In this video, you'll find:

- Williams suggesting Dykstra was mad he gave up the famous walk-off home run to Joe Carter because it meant Dykstra wouldn't win 1993 World Series MVP.

- Williams challenging Dykstra to a competitive MLB rules quiz.

- Dykstra insisting he took more drugs to cope with Williams.

- Dykstra saying going to prison was like a "fantasy camp" compared to playing with Williams.

- Williams standing up as if he's gonna fight Dykstra (he doesn't), followed by a spectator walking up to the podium to suggest they just "go outside." Dykstra tells him to shut up.

- Williams responding to Dykstra's mockery about his failures by referencing Dykstra's extensive criminal history.

Old, drunk, grumpy and pitted against your worst enemy on stage is a dazzling combination.
