Welcome back Cubs fans! Hopefully 2009 is “the year”..I recall starting off last season saying pretty much the exact same thing but I will save my speech for the start of the season. Right now I would just like to talk about the closer role. Pretty sure last season started something like this as well.
Who do you have? Marmol or Gregg? The former setup man who looked unhittable or Gregg the former closer who got bounced around late last season in Florida.
Personally I have Gregg. Gregg has pitched very well this spring and it is no secret that he looks to be the favorite at this point. Marmol has had some struggles especially in the WBC which shouldn't really hurt him that much but I am sure Lou still looks at that. I really just get the feeling that Lou prefers to have Marmol rock the setup role and let's be honest, the setup role is just as important as the closer.
May the best man win….but if Gregg is that man at least I am correct. Who do you folks think will win this job?
