    Sad thing is he probably is the best person we have for a closer

    If Marmol could hit the strike zone he would be perfect, but he hasnt done it all year so i dont see him doing it all of sudden now that he is the closer.

    And to think it only took until August 18th to realize that Gregg isn't a good closer.

    In what I've seen of Marmol this season, he has the stuff to close, but he has absolutely no control of his stuff, which will keep him from ever being a good closer. 52 walks and 67 strike outs is NOT a good ratio for a closer at all. While Gregg hasn't been great, his 23 walks and 58 strike outs is a much better ratio for a closer.

    His control has taken a real turn for the worse this year.

    Re: Pinella has had enough of Gregg I hope

    In all seriousness, how about Guzman? He has showed he has the stuff, and he has the control. I'd think Pinella should at least think about him.

    Oh, yeah.

    I wanted to see if TarHeel had a "blood pressure rising" smiley. That's his favorite.

    Guzman makes as much sense as anyone back there right now.

    I don't want Marmol anywhere near the closer spot. Even if he did have great control, he is best used as the fireman. A reliever who can come in and get out of a jam with a couple of strikeouts. Right now, Gregg is the best man for the job but he sucks at the moment, so I understand why Lou is removing him.
