    Cubs, Marmol agree to 3 year deal

    Expected to be around 20 million. I think that's a very fair deal.

    Combined with the bargain deal Kerry Wood took, you have a very reasonably priced and potentially dominate back end of the bullpen.

    Re: Cubs, Marmol agree to 3 year deal

    Nice. Marmol is a solid closer and when he has that slider working he is unhittable. Welcome aboard for 3 more years Carlos.

    Throw in Marshall and you could potentially have one of the best 7, 8, 9 combo's in the NL.

    While I did not expect this to go to arbitration, it extremely reassuring to see this deal got done!

    Right. Don't forget how great Marshall was last season. Marmol had a 2.55 ERA and Marshall had a 2.65 ERA, both in 70+ innings. Marshall's OBAA was .279.

    Nice. Once we get Pujols signed after this season, we'll be in pretty good shape.

    Re: Cubs, Marmol agree to 3 year deal

    I am glad we got him signed. It will be interesting to see how our pitchers perform for our new Pitching Coach. I was a fan of Larry, but thought Lou was a little rough on the pitchers, especially the Bullpen guys.

    I was the complete opposite.

    In that case, it will be good to see another Coach work with our guys.
