Baseball's All-Scandal Team

Steve Phillips

Phillips built a formidable team that won the 2000 NL pennant but was hit by a former employee's sexual harassment suit that led to revelations of multiple affairs -- this at a time when the Mets were trying to fumigate an ugly image as a haven for miscreants, malcontents and lawbreakers. Phillips took a brief leave of absence in 1998 as local tabloids merrily dished the dirt, and settled the case out of court. He survived long enough to be fired in 2003 as the Mets floundered, and left baseball for a broadcasting career.
