i like wood for the closer position. then we can use marmol and howry like we did down the stretch last year. lets just let wood go in and throw his heart out as long as he can get the save though. nothing makes me more mad than the cubs blowing a save. also dont put dumpster in the rotation!
I don't think Marmol has what it takes to close quite yet. He deteriorated down the stretch and in the playoffs (2HRs 9.00 ERA) when the heat was on. Wood has more experience and isn't going to get the yips. Howry has the worst stuff of the three so I'd take Marmol in a close 2nd.
Im not a cubs fan but if things go south with their closer situation, my Twins are most likely going to trade Joe Nathan sometime during the season for young infielding talent. Any cubs fans think this could happen?
