Costas called in to the “Today” show Wednesday morning to tell Lauer he would be “coming out of the bullpen again tonight.”
“Actually, I don’t feel that bad,” Costas said of his eye infection. “It’s an eye infection, and my eyes are so blurry and watery and become so light-sensitive that even in dim light they’re constantly tearing up. I can’t possibly be in the studio, so it’s not a case of just saying, ‘What the heck, I’ll go in not feeling well.”
