Jayson Stark, Trent Dilfer and Ed Warner Relieved of Duties at ESPN

Today, ESPN announced that it was laying off more than 100 employees, including on air personalities Jayson Stark, Ed Werner and Trent Dilfer.

Philly's Own Jayson Stark
Stark, who once covered the Phillies and wrote for the Philadelphia Inquirer for many years, was one of ESPN's leading commentators on baseball the past 17 years, and was a regular fixture on the Mike & Mike Show.

Trent Dilfer
Dilfer, who quarterbacked the Baltimore Ravens' 2000 Super Bowl champion team, had been a fixture on a variety of ESPN's NFL-focused shows for many years.

Ed Werder
Werder, who had been with ESPN since 1998, was also a regular contributor to ESPN's NFL packages.

All three of these guys, as well as other personalities that were laid off such as Danny Kanell, Dana O'Neill, Len Elmore, Jay Crawford, Ashley Fox (formerly of the Philly Inquirer), Jim Bowden, Brendan Fitzgerald, were a real joy to watch, and it is sad to see them go.

Kanell - Obviously Not Happy
All seemed to handle the situation with aplomb, a smart move in such a closed industry, although Danny Kanell, who is married and has 3 young kids, tweeted:

Poured my heart and soul into ESPN for last 8 years. Moved my wife and 3 kids to CT to go "all in" 5 years ago. Bummed it ended in 3 minutes
