Cubs accept Gregg's apology for rant
Sep 21, 2013 at 1:00a ET
Before Saturday's game against Atlanta, Gregg said he's put the issue behind him and believes ''it's over'' as far as Epstein is concerned, too.
Gregg unloaded to reporters about his dissatisfaction over apparently losing his closer's job to reliever Pedro Strop. His outburst came after allowing four runs in the ninth during Friday's 9-5 loss.
After learning of Gregg's comments, Epstein said he would consider releasing Gregg. He called Gregg on Friday night and accepted the pitcher's apology.
Manager Dale Sveum said the Cubs will look at Strop in the closer's role, but that Gregg hasn't lost his job.
