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.”
