FORT MYERS, Fla. — Orioles manager Buck Showalter called Red Sox GM Theo Epstein to apologize for his comments he made to Men's Journal magazine.
The apology was accepted and Epstein considers the matter closed.
UPDATE, 1:24 p.m.: Here's what Showalter told the Baltimore beat writers:
"I talked to Theo last night. I just felt like I need to call him. ... It just caused them to sit around and answer questions or whatever, so I spoke to both them."
