So much for the Cubs’ closer competition, Carlos Marmol is forfeiting with his decision to pitch for the D.R. in the Classic.
No, it’s not official, but believe me, the competition is over, Kevin Gregg is the Cubs’ closer.
And I have to believe Marmol knows this too or he wouldn’t have declined the invite from the D.R. in the first place.
Of course, I don’t know why Marmol changed his mind, but I still think it’s a silly decision.
