Steve Phillips: another horned dog from ESPN

Another ESPN personality got the can...this time it was baseball analyst Steve Phillips...Phillips had a nice gig going as he was the third man in the booth with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan on Sunday Night Baseball...

But he could not keep his pants up as he was banging a 22-year-old named Brooke Hundley in parking lots (photo above of them) ...the funny thing, back in June I was following her on Twitter...she usually had something interesting to say about ESPN...

Now that Phillips lost his job, he entered a "treatment facility"...what type of treatment facility???...is it an alcohol or drug facility?...the only other facility is a mental hospital...is there such thing as an over-sexed facility?...

Come on, tell us what facility!!!!..

Oh well, here is what was reported on ESPN.com:

Baseball analyst Steve Phillips was fired by ESPN on Sunday night less than a week after the former Mets general manager admitted having an affair with a production assistant at the cable network.

A representative for Phillips also announced the former Mets general manager was entering a treatment facility "to address his personal issues."

Phillips acknowledged Wednesday he had a relationship with 22-year-old Brooke Hundley.

"Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN," network spokesman Josh Krulewitz said in a statement. "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."

Phillips had taken a leave of absence after the affair became public. Krulewitz declined comment when asked Sunday night about Hundley's status with the company.
