Studly Steve Phillips Axed by ESPN

Who could've seen this coming?
Steve Phillips is out at ESPN.

The sports network tonight abruptly announced that the married baseball analyst — who was caught in a sordid love tryst with a portly production assistant — has left the company.

"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," said ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz in a prepared statement.

Sources confirmed that Phillips was fired.

The stunning development came less than a week after The Post broke details of Phillips’ affair with 22-year-old ESPN coworker Brooke Hundley, who then turned on the former Mets general manager when he dumped her.

The spurned Hundley allegedly harassed Phillips’ wife and son in a "Fatal Attraction" style campaign.
Well, Phillips has now flushed his career as a GM and now a cushy ESPN gig. He may want to begin looking at a new profession. Word is male prostitution is a booming business.
