Bob Costas Savaged Cubs Reliever Pedro Strop for his 'Atrocious' Performance

By Mike Cardillo

Pedro Strop didn’t pitch very well for the Cubs Friday night, blowing a save in the eighth inning highlighted by a Greg Garcia pinch hit home run that tied the game. For reasons beyond comprehension Bob Costas, calling the game on MLB Network, laid into Strop as he walked off the mound.

"“Strop is on his way out, pointing towards the heavens. We can only ask, or wonder that he is asking some departed relative for forgiveness for this atrocious performance.”"

Yikes. Perhaps Costas should leave his opinions to hot takes on Taylor Swift.

A penny for Strop’s thoughts watching this Costas first pitch attempt.
