Theo Epstein upset with Kevin Gregg for voicing complaints to media…will sleep on it but is considering releasing him… — Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) September 20, 2013 Theo responds to Gregg: “He ran to the media. That was his decision. I told him, as a man, I didn’t respect that." — Patrick Mooney (@CSNMooney) September 20, 2013 Gregg gave up four runs and took a loss in Friday’s game after coming into a tied game against the Braves in the ninth inning. On Thursday the Cubs spoke of plans to use Pedro Strop in the closer’s role. Ironically, Gregg was credited with his 50th game finished which earned him a $500,000 bonus. Gregg is said to have apologized to Theo Epstein after the incident.
