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.

Hey hey, go Flubs! you disgraced the city when you got swept last year, whilst we could manage a win.

Anyways, Gregg blew 9 saves last year so have fun with him.
