Anybody have any thoughts or insights as to who would get the first chance at some saves?
Here's the blurb you were referring to for anyone interested:
Carlos Marmol: Potential Closer for Cubs

Update: Cubs manager Lou Piniella is considering making Marmol the closer and moving Ryan Dempster to the starting rotation, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Recommendation: Marmol threw a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's game in a non-save situation. Apparently this plan has been postponed a few days after Dempster pitched well on Friday. Piniella has said he has big changes for his pitching staff, but has been coy about details. This news may make picking up Marmol worth a shot in deep leagues, as it looks like he'll play a big role in the bullpen even if not moved to closer.
