I wouldn't. Not real sure Marmol is a very solid RP. Keep #1 for something better.

Yeah! No reason for Marmol to be on the WW in a 12-team league.

Depends on one question. Are there any other closers in the Free Agent pile. If so, then pass. If not, maybe drop Bud Norris.

Next closest thing to "closers" on the WW are J. Peralta and M. Melancon

I don't think he's solid in terms of what you get day to day, but he does have job security and a history of putting up 10+ K/9. Wood isn't exactly knocking on the door and he'd have to blow quite a few more saves before Dollis got a chance. In a 12 team league I'm not sure a better player hits the wire all season. Of course if this is a Yahoo public league or something with similarly stupid/reactionary managers...

Possibly nothing better will hit the WW but he has enough closers and I don't see anyone worth dropping. I just don't see that this will improve his team.

I doubt there will that many better options, unless the league is full of clowns.
Marmol is a top 15 closer.
