Steve Phillips was never renowned for being a great evaluator of talent during his days as general manager of the New York Mets. Apparently, he hasn’t lost his knack for bad scouting in his new career as an ESPN baseball analyst.
Phillips has been suspended by ESPN after the details of an (alleged….yeah, right) affair leaked out in recent days. Phillips, 46, engaged in less-than-becoming behavior with a 22-year-old production assistant who wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.
Basically, Phillips and the woman in question, Brooke Hundley, fornicated a few times before Phillips attempted to opt out of the deal (that’s baseball lingo). Hundley, in turn, went crazy and began stalking Phillips and his family. So much for a clean break.
