I have no particular want to pick on Steve Phillips right now. He has is own troubles with having to innovate a new image in light of his sex-scapades. What I do want to point out is that some of that behavior was acted out while he served as GM of the Mets. How much Fred Wilpon was clued into how much of an office trickster Phillips was is stricly speculative before Phillips took his his leave from the team that is.. However, we do know Joe McIlvaine did leave the NY Mets in part because of all the back-scene mayhem within the Mets' front office. You can look that up. I'm just sayin'. You make the connections.
