The New York Times is reporting that former Mets general manager and ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips has been fired from the network.

Recently the New York Post had published that Phillips had had an affair with a 22-year-old production assistant at ESPN. A letter the assistant had sent to Phillips’ wife became part of a police report and was part of the story. 

According to the Times, ESPN released a statement on Sunday, Oct. 25th, that read, “Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN. His ability to be an effective representative for ESPN has been significantly and irreparably damaged, and it became evident it was time to part ways.”

  1. Steve Phillips commits a reprise
    Of bedding down his employees;
    Hits Hundley then walks,
    So she in turn stalks
    And puts his past balls in a squeeze.

  2. So once again it’s either your ratings or your importance to the network that matters.
    Phillips is fired, but David Letterman not only keeps his job but plays it for laughs.
    I guess Phillips should have been working for CBS.

  3. Maybe I am showing my age here…but what ever happended to just being smart about cheating…don’t do it…but didn’t anyone ever tell you to “…never —- where you eat!”

  5. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
