Screw it. Russell only threw 13 pitches. Send him back out for the ninth. Please.

but who the hell is going to pitch the 9th???


sveum said marmol has started working his way back into the closers role. When he said worked his way i think he meant 'dear god i have no other options i have put somebody out there'

or could it be kevin gregg time...again. Remember when he was blowing saves and cubs fans were clamoring for marmol to close?

Yikes. haha.

I would rather see Kameron Loe than Gregg, but I guess it will be Marmol in the ninth. I will say he has had 4 straight scoreless appearances. Does that just mean he is due to give up some runs?

I think Marmol actually had a 1,2,3 in his last outing. It may be the first one ever for him.

at least he would let you down quick. He wouldn't F around and walk 3 guys. He'd just groove one right onto Waveland

he did...it was certainly his first of the season.

There used to be a band of fans out in the bleachers that had Carlos 'White Castle' Marmol shirts they wore to games. Because he had a slider that would make you shite.

That was back when people liked him.

Yeah, I was watching that too...I also saw Kerry Wood's 20 K game live. THAT was truly amazing.

Marmol just can't do 9th. He isn't terrible in other innings
