I pity my poor friends who are Yankee and Phillies fans. They have nothing more interesting to do this time of year but watch post-season baseball.
Meanwhile, we Met fans can concentrate on more important things, like how many more ways current and former Mets can embarrass themselves.
Wednesday the New York Post has an exclusive
story about former GM Steve Phillips' affair with a 22-year-old intern at ESPN. Of course, we all are aware of Steve's previous antics when he had one of the best jobs in baseball. Met staffer Rosa Rodriguez sued for sexual harassment, Steve took a leave of absence and the case got settled. The Wilpons stood by their troubled GM, despite the troubles the behavior caused the team (some things never change).
Now comes word that ESPN has suspended Phillips for a week after admitting to an affair with Brooke Hundley. The details are very ugly
. Phillips' kids were duped by this woman and his wife has divorced him. Good luck to the Phillips family.
