Steve Phillips was fired Thursday as general manager of the listless New York Mets, a last-place team stuck with a lot of highly paid stars who have failed to produce. With the Mets banged-up, booed at Shea Stadium and nowhere near the team that reached the 2000 World Series, owner Fred Wilpon called Phillips into his office. Phillips became the first GM in the majors to be fired this season. "I wouldn't say he was surprised," Wilpon said. "It wasn't a long conversation."

His ability to construct a winning outfit shows on the field each day. Every piece, chosen with pride and care, provides the perfect touch. The shirts and ties, colors and patterns, blend together to make a statement. Steve Phillips dresses to the nines. It's his trademark. Now, maybe another reputation is in the works. Phillips' job is to pick out the right players, and with the Mets' record finally reflecting their payroll, the general manager has built a working ensemble.

He doesn't look a day over 30, the blond man standing behind the Dodger Stadium batting cage, wearing the starched white shirt and the black loafers with the tassels. He is general manager of the New York Mets, not a bad job to have. The job has been his for eight days. "Are you the youngest GM in baseball?" Steve Phillips is asked. "Not quite," he says. "Randy Smith's got me, in Detroit. But not by much."

Howard Hilton led the triple-A International League in appearances last season in more ways than one. The right-hander appeared in 70 games for the Louisville Redbirds.

The Cardinals believe that Hilton's heft takes mustard off his pitches, so he has agreed to lose weight during the off-season.
