If you thought trading Scott Kazmir for Victor Zambrano during his stint as GM of the Mets was the worst decision Steve Phillips could make, think again.
The ESPN analyst had an affair with assistant Brooke Hundley, who, after being dumped, went insane and started harassing Steve's wife Marni Phillips.
We are talking phone calls and a letter that bragged about sex with Steve Phillips while ridiculing their "loveless marriage," The New York Post reports.
Steve confessed to Marni Phillips and local police that he had slept with ESPN assistant Brooke Hundley, 22, several times this summer before dumping her.
In retaliation, the jilted young woman repeatedly phoned Phillips' wife, exclaiming things like "We both can't have him!" an explosive police report claims.
Hundley also described, in her letter to Marni Phillips, details of her husband's sexual relationship with her, including the birthmark on Steve's crotch and how at least she didn't have to worry about him knocking her up since he had a vasectomy.
Classy. It's actually worse than you think, too.
Steve Phillips blew this whistle on lover-turned-stalker Brooke Hundley. He also blew his marriage to Marni Phillips. This was after Brooke ... never mind.
Hundley accidentally smashed her car into a stone column while speeding away from the Phillips' home after leaving the letter, terrifying the family.
She also may have used an ESPN computer to contact and stalk Phillips' 16-year-old son on Facebook while posing as one of his high-school classmates.
"I have extreme concerns about the health and safety of my kids and myself," Steve Phillips said in a Wilton, Conn., police statement, adding that Brooke Hundley had become "obsessive and delusional" after he dumped her.
Steve Phillips is not pressing charges against her, but he is being sued himself - for divorce, by Marni Phillips, 40, with whom he has four sons.
Phillips has also been suspended for a week by ESPN because of the scandal.
These bombshell developments come nearly a decade after Phillips took a leave of absence as the Mets' GM for infidelity, which was almost as much of a hallmark of Phillips' tenure with the team as his bad personnel decisions.
One of several rumored affairs he had back then was with a team employee, Rosa Rodriguez, who sued Steve for sexual harassment in the late 1990s.
