Well, well well. No ego stroking coming out of camp this spring. Kevin Gregg is your closer, winning out against Carlos "Dutch flubber" Marmol. I was actually rather hoping this would happen for a couple of reasons. Now, Gregg gets a short leash, with Marmol ready to step in if needed. And Marmol can actually go back to doing what he did so insanely well last year and that's closing the door in the 7th and 8th innings.
Yes, we know Marmol was "supposed" to be the next great closer. But for now he's the best bullpen man in baseball, including closers and Carlos, you're just gonna have to settle for that.
"His mediocre spring numbers and WBC struggles weren't a factor, he said."
