Link-O-Rama: Phillips, Ibanez, Mills, Beltran

Oct 26, 2009, 3:04 PM EDT

* In addition to letting Steve Phillips go, ESPN has now also fired the 22-year-old production assistant with whom he had an affair. Meanwhile, agent Steve Lefkowitz revealed that Phillips has entered a rehab facility for sex addiction in an effort “to save his marriage.”
* Charlie Manuel said today that Raul Ibanez will “more than likely” be the Phillies’ designated hitter for Game 1 of the World Series against Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia. Ben Francisco will likely replace him in left field, which is a massive upgrade defensively in addition to giving the injured Ibanez some extra rest.
* Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills appears to be the front-runner for the Astros’ managerial opening after Manny Acta turned Houston down.
* Alex Speier of quotes “a major-league source” as saying that “there is virtually no chance” the Mets will trade Carlos Beltran.
* You can follow the “Circling the Bases” team (minus Craig, who hates technology) on Twitter:
– Aaron Gleeman: @aarongleeman
– Matthew Pouliot: @matthewpouliot
– Bob Harkins: @bharks
– D.J. Short: @djshort
What we lack in creative Twitter account names, we more than make up for in good looks and sarcasm.

    I don’t hate technology. I just fear that the freemasons are going to try and exert mind control over me if I tweet. WAKE UP SHEEPLE!

    And you guys should see this girl. Check out this link. So dissappointing for a man on TV. Reminds me of Monica Lewinsky.

    Hey Craig,
    I think if you wrap your head in Tin Foil, it will prevent the masons from acessing your mind when you tweet. I am right now wrapping my head as well, but only so that I can not ever see the photo of Steve Phillips’ girlfriend again, per the linkfrom dcfan-1212450.
