I read where it was said that there would be a competition for the closers job between Marmol and Gregg. I don't see why they would acquire Gregg to have him not be the closer. Marmol is the better pitcher , but there's no way to be sure he will be the closer.
If you draft him , you will have to risk him not closing.
This is risky business, as either option sounds like a good idea for the Cubs, but not for our fantasy teams. Marmol's stats are very nice to have, no matter what, but obviously a reach in that area of the draft if he isn't getting the bulk of the saves. At this point, the safe thing to do would be grab them both, however they fit in your draft. I honestly believe this comes down to how the other set-up men fare early on, and this doesn't help anyone drafting right now.
