    Cub's Bullpen

    Anyone else catch this? Cubs ruin another great start from Dempster by blowing a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the 9th. Going to extras now, but I don't like the Cubbies chances. Marmol looked absolutely horrible throwing 12 balls on 18 pitches and leaving the game having given up 2 runs, with the bases loaded and no outs. Luckily Dolis came in and cleaned the mess up a bit, and only let them tie it up.

    I know it's a rebuilding year for the Cubs, but their bullpen is downright terrible. I think they should at least try to make a trade for a solid vet to put there to at least have some sense of stability. Starters have been decent, but anytime a relief pitcher comes on the mound for the Cubbies, I cringe...

    When will Swveum wake up? Hopefully after today. You can't give him anymore chances. He's done. Triple A here he comes. If not the front office is a bunch of ******* idiots.

    It's pretty sad that I have given up on this year and we are not event 1/4 of the way into the season. Trading some young talent now would be a waste just to get a veteran reliever. The only hope is to find some sucker to take Marmol hoping a "change of scenery" will help him.

    Re: Cub's Bullpen

    There HAS to be someone down in Triple A that is better than Marmol. Heck I think I could do better with a little practice. I was throwing 86 when I was in high school. Could throw strikes too.

    I'm not sure how Sveum keeps a straight face as he continues trotting Marmol out there...

    I'm starting to think he's not a very good manager.

    Re: Cub's Bullpen

    You can't blame Dolis for anything, he's got potential but is young and inexperienced. Marmol however has been the closer for a few years now and still sucks.

    Marmol is the bullpen problem.

    10 hits, 6 earned runs, 8 walks in 14 innings. Not that great. But when you have Marmol to compare to, those #s are heavenly.
