Cubs’ Strop loses car, gets save on ‘crazy day’

CHICAGO—Cubs closer Pedro Strophad to cut short talking with the police regarding his stolen car on Wednesday, just in time to secure the save in a wild 7-6 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Strop said his car was stolen earlier in the day. The incident disrupted his pregame routine, and he said he was still dealing with it during the game when he told police he had to go.

“I was still giving them my information in the fourth inning, and I told them, ‘I have to go. I might have to pitch,’” Strop said.

All right, which one of you did it?

I once forgot to brush my teeth for five weeks. I didn’t actually sell my last car, I just forgot where I parked it. I don’t know who Al Gore is, and at this point I’m too afraid to ask. When they say 2% milk, I don’t know what the other 98% is. When I was a baby, my head was so big scientists did experiments on me. I once threw a beer at a swan and then it attacked my niece Rebecca.

Did Strop think he might actually have to pitch in the 5th?

it's possible he wanted to prepare ahead of actually getting called into the game...

It takes a while to get the hat at just the right angle.
