Is there anything worse than Bob Costas talking about “the ethos of the mob” and “clicks” and “ad-hominem attacks” every time he opens his mouth to answer a question about the internet? I submit that there isn’t.
Bob Costas will apologize to Pedro Strop for launching into an inexplicable, hilarious, and just plain dirty burn on the Cubs reliever after Strop’s poor outing Friday night.
Pedro Strop didn’t have the best performance out of the Cubs’ pen tonight, giving up a homer and then putting two more guys on base. But it apparently infuriated MLB Network’s Bob Costas, who hammered Strop with a burn so raw we can’t even endorse it:
The Chicago Cubs salvaged a win in their opening series against the Pirates with a rain-soaked 3-2 victory at PNC Park today, but it wasn't without some embarrassment. A botched bunt by Gaby Sanchez left pitcher Pedro Strop and catcher John Baker in what we might call a compromising situation.
