Gregg beat out Carlos Marmol, the Cubs' top set-up man last year. They both spent spring training vying to replace All-Star closer Kerry Wood, who signed with Cleveland during the offseason.


I like Marmol, but I think his WBC experience shaked his confidence.

Boooooo for my fantasy baseball team!!!


I will be surprised if that doesn't change in the not to distant future. Gregg has never impressed me for some reason. Of course I waited all year for Ryan Dempster to fall apart and that never happened either.

I like Marmol exactly where he is, setup.

He is the closer of the future, and Gregg has been impressive this spring.

Also I believe it to be easier to switch Marmol to the closer role if Gregg fails, rather than the other way around.

It is good to have "issues" like this.

I do not, however, like Marmol's reaction to the situation.
Seemed a bit petulant.
Get over it kid, and don't run your mouth.

You have Cub envy and the classic Sox fan inferiority complex.

It gets worse with age.

Enjoy.
