Harold Reynolds FIRED by ESPN

Postby The Kavorka » Tue Jul 25, 2006 8:50 am

ESPN yesterday fired analyst Harold Reynolds from Baseball Tonight, sources told The Post. The reason was not immediately known.

"We are not going to comment," ESPN VP Josh Krulewitz said.

When asked how they are going to explain that Reynolds will never be on the air again, Krulewitz still declined comment.

Reynolds did not return calls.

Hopefully Kruk and Joe Morgan are next.

Not to rumor-monger, but my guess is that it's something like Michael Irvin's leave of absence-- maybe pot or something. I doubt it has anything to do with his on-air skills.

That's a little strange.
I always thought his brother being an agent and him having access to lots of of insider information was bordering on a conflict of interest.

Wow this is interesting news. I always liked HR and considered him and Ravech the two mainstays of BBTN.

Whatever it was it had to be big because HR was a key part of ESPN and ABC's baseball package. Not only did he do BBTN and Sportscenter work but he was also the main color commentator for the Little League World Series.

Hey Perlick I'm sure you have some moles. Dig around and see what you can find. I'll see if I can dig up anything.

Well then, if we are guessing, I'll take "sex with a minor"

This sucks...he was funny.

I like how he didn't take everything so seriously.

I liked him but it had to be that Crosby MVP prediction that did it.

Harold was decent usually on BBTN. It will be interesting to see what the reasons were for his departure.
