Two seasons in the bigs and Carlos Marmol already has an ego problem suitable for the NFL.
His melancholy comments in regards to being named the set-up man, and not the closer, are far from congratulatory words for teammate Kevin Gregg.
“I guess it’s good for the team,” said Marmol.
Worse, Marmol is now saying the team’s competition for the closer’s role was a hoax, that he’s been mislead and that the Cubs already had their mind made up Gregg would be closing even before heading to Spring Training.
How convenient Marmol mutters this after the fact. No sense mentioning these views a few weeks ago, Carlos?
