The good? A cubs late inning rally for a victory. The bad? Another Carlos Marmol implosion with a lead in late innings, the whispers will inevitably start now. Is Marmol the guy for the closer job once the season opens? History suggests that he should be given his experience as the closer, but last year was a huge step back, and so far this spring not much has changed. Theo, Jed, and Sveum have all gone on record saying how deflating a blown save is for a ball club, not just that day, but the days and weeks that follow. This is definitely something to keep an eye on as the Spring progresses, the Cubs need Marmol at the top of his game, if he’s not, he won’t be closing.
