Steve Phillips: 'Thank God For Steroids'

Steve Phillips, former New York Mets general manager and ex-ESPN analyst weighed in on the steroid era in Major League Baseball on his Sirius XM radio show on Wednesday.

While discussing the Barry Bonds perjury trial, Phillips went on to suggest that steroids helped the game.

"Thank God for steroids," he said. "It brought the game back from extinction."

Phillips was fired by ESPN after he admitted to having an affair with a 22-year-old production assistant.
