I guarantee they could get the same scrub prospect for Gregg as they coudl for Marmol. That is to say, each of them will bring back absolutely nothing in return.
A good month on top of the 2nd half obviously does change his value. As I said it doesn't have to be Marmol, it can be anyone but Gregg. Smart teams build value in their RP by making them closers. The A's, the Rays, the Brewers etc have all done this. The last thing you want on a losing team is a mediocre veteran closer, that is the worst choice they could make. I'm not pushing for Marmol as much as saying anyone but Gregg, even Marmol would make sense. I mean I would pray they make Fujikawa the closer when he gets back assuming he has like 2 good appearances in a row.
