Report: Cubs considering releasing Gregg


Recommended Posts


Chicago Cubs president Theo Epstein is considering releasing closer Kevin Gregg after Gregg complained in a postgame tirade on Friday that the Cubs were thinking about replacing him as the team's closer next season, the Chicago Tribune reported. Gregg's complaints to the media came after he yielded four runs in the ninth inning of the Cubs' 9-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Gregg is staying put. It was all a misunderstanding. He thought he was losing the closer job and mouthed off about it. He then apologized after learning that the Cubs just wanted to give Pedro Strop a few chances. Epstein accepted the apology and all is well. Gregg is a FA after the season, so even though he's not being released now, he could still walk.

Yes, his problem is an inability to consistently pitch at a level above a generic journeyman. His peripherals are quite consistent year to year. And just not very good.

I think Nightwing was talking about Strop. I don't know who the previous poster was talking about.
