Thank goodness the Cubs have a position battle for the closer’s role.
If this wasn’t the case Carlos Marmol is probably pitching for the D.R. in the World Baseball Classic.
Can’t think of any good that would come from Carlos turning it up a few short weeks after his Winter Ball post-season play and a mere six weeks before Opening Day.
Listen, I understand the general idea behind the Classic as an opportunity to showcase the game of baseball on a world-wide stage.
But MLB needs to realize that its star players, organizations and fans care far more about the regular season than they do about a meaningless tournament.
