Gregg bests Marmol for Cubs' closer role (AP)

Posted by DuckSnort 4 days ago (
Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella picked Kevin Gregg to be the team's closer heading into the season. Gregg beat out Carlos Marmol, the Cubs' top setup man last year. They both spent spring training vying to replace All-Star closer Kerry Wood, who signed with Cleveland during the offseason. "Gregg came in here and hasn't given up a run all spring," Piniella said Sunday.

Interesting... Who would have thunk that Kevin Gregg would look better than Carlos Marmol this spring - not me. While this certainly hurts Marmols fantasy value it is probably for the best being a Cubs fan. Marmol in the setup role give Pinella the power to use his best stopper when he needs him most - not just in the 9th inning.
