David Letterman he is not -- only a few days after news broke of ESPN analyst Steve Phillips' affair with a 22-year-old production assistant, he's out of a job.

An ESPN spokesperson said Phillips' ability to be an effective analyst was "significantly and irreparably damaged" -- so the sports network decided to give him the old heave-ho.

That's too bad. I thought this guy did a pretty good job. I enjoyed his analysis.

This is the second scandal for baseball tonight, Harold Reynolds was a great analyst who got fired in 2006 just for a hug, he later sued ESPN.

Yeah I remember that guy. I thought he was pretty cool as well. Was upset when ESPN canned his arse.

Also miss Stephen A Smith cuz although he was annoying for some at times, I always respected and admired that he'd say whatever he felt like saying and wasn't afraid to go the non politically correct route.

Smith didn't get fired did he?

Supposedly he didn't. He was just let go in a different way because they weren't gonna' give him a raise or they were gonna' pay him less and give him a crappier contract, basically a slap in the face.
