Bob Costas verbally blistered Cubs pitcher Pedro Strop during Friday’s game between Chicago and the St. Louis Cardinals. So much so that he has had to apologize.

“The tone of it was not what I intended. I intended it as a kind of sarcastic comment about this overall thing where everybody seems to be pointing toward the heavens for every accomplishment, large and small, or even for no accomplishment at all,” Costas said. “I inadvertently appeared harsh toward Strop. That wasn’t my intention. And so

I owe him an apology. And I will apologize to him (on Sunday).”

He lambasted Strop for “pointing toward the heavens” after an “atrocious performance.” Here’s a Vine:

We have a winner.

As Twitchy readers know, this is far from the first time that Costas’ mouth has slipped into nonsense gear.
