Steve Phillips seems to take a leave of absence when the stories of his infidelities hit the news. His past affairs, including the one he had with Rosa Rodriguez in 1998, were not enough to keep Phillips free and clear of more personal problems. His current situation with 22 year old Brooke Hundley has caused him to take a leave from ESPN during baseball playoffs. There is no word from ESPN as to the disciplinary action that Steve Phillips will receive.
