Steve Phillips, Making Messes Of The Mets And His Own Life
ESPN analyst and former Mets GM Steve Phillips has an affair that goes all Fatal Attraction on him, except for the boiled bunny thing.
We heard this rumor Sunday and began to inquire with a few ESPN sources about Phillips’ behavior. All three sources said the same thing - Phillips is an unfailingly nice guy, but it wouldn’t surprise them if Phillips got involved with a production assistant because everyone gets involved with production assistants. The star culture at ESPN helps create these situations - the on-air talented is surrounded by attractive, starry-eyed 20-somethings fresh out of college, leading to lots of potentially sticky situations. It happened to Harold Reynolds. Mike Tirico’s history with young women was detailed in The Uncensored History of ESPN. Nobody expects these types of situations to end anytime soon.Ouch.
