ESPN gives Harold Reynolds the boot..

I got this tidbit from Bruce's comment on the post below. I am hungover bad so after sleeping most of the day, I checked into why Harold Reynolds got the axe. I liked Harold Reynolds, I think some of the dipshits on Espn's Baseball Tonight like Jeff Brantley and Steve Phillips need to get the axe. Sports Illustrated doesn't hint at the why on HR's canning but Deadspin does. For those of you not familiar with Deadspin..its a gossipy sports site. Think the "Drudge Report" on steroids with a baseball bat in his hand. Deadspin hinted that perhaps HR chased a wrong skirt and got canned for sexual harrassment. But a later edit of that post stated that it might of been because HR threw a giant hissy-fit during a meeting and his primadonna act was enough to say later dude.

I just know I will miss HR. With Gannon out for medical reasons I find Baseball Tonight a tad boring lately. I do like Timmy Kurkjian, hes a cute lil nerd, and big John Kruk is always a favorite buffoon.

Adieu HR.

I dunno...I was never crazy about HR...but I agree Baseball Tonight needs more personality.

Bruce said...

Unfortunately, everyone on BBTN, except for Kruk, has the personality of a kumqwat, and Steve Phillips is a fucking moron. There's a reason he's a former GM.

I agree B..Phillips is the head moron.

I have never tasted a kumquat..are they good? If so, we need to compare them to something else :p

Baseball Tonight should be good by definition, but isn't. How can you fuck up baseball highlights? Boring and stuffy.
