Anyone know who will be closing for the Cubs now that Dempster is on the DL?

Marmol got the save today but he didnt look good the other night. It should be interesting situation to follow. It's worth a gamble to pick up Marmol as most leagues Howry might not be available in NL only leagues.

The last 3 saves for the Cubs have been from 3 different people: Howry, then Ohman, then Marmol today. Most reports say Howry is the main guy, so I went with him as my Dempster replacement as he has more experience than Marmol. They've both had bad outings in the past couple days, so it's tough to say that either of them "blew their chance."

Howry will be the closer until Dumpster comes back. The only reason that he hasn't been in the last two nights is because of all the work that he had for the last week, so don't look too far into the Weurtz and Marmol save opps. He pitched an inning in each game against the Sox, and was totally out of gas the other night against the Rockies, so Pinella had told him that he wouldn't be used in the next two games against the Rockies because he wanted him to be healthy for their set against the Brewers.
