After this latest BLOWN save, #1 just doesn’t do it for me. Why the hell should ANYBODY feel sorry for Carlos Marmol? This guy makes more money in a year than most of us will make in a lifetime. $7 million this year, 20+ million from 2010-2013. He made it to “the show”. I don’t feel sorry for him at all. I feel sorry for his teammates — who he let down again — and for long suffering Cub fans.
#2 sums it up just fine: MISERABLY INADEQUATE.
Marmol throws hard. SO WHAT? How about a “closer” who can PITCH? How about a closer who can get the ball over the plate consistently? How about a closer who has the right head for the job? How about a closer who can…close? What a concept…
Time to make a change. There is nothing to lose…start grooming somebody else for the job or make a trade for a legitimate closer when one becomes available.
I’m tired of this CRAP. The house-cleaning is not complete….
