it depends... if you've got 4-5 other bonafide closers and dont need marmol per say, then sure you could do that cuz you know the cubs are gonna do everything in their power to move him if he's good, and if he's bad they'll use their new toy as a closer cuz that's basically what he does.

ideally i'd try to drop someone else droppable to have them both with fuji as a handcuff so that way you can have both of them to get the cubs saves this year... but idk who else is on your team. maybe list that and i'll give better advice?

take a look @ my thread, would ye!? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=457768

Without seeing your roster or knowing any info about your league I'd say hold on to him for now. He's closing now (although who knows for how long) but as long as he's the incumbent hold onto him.
If you can drop someone off your bench to pick up Fukijima that's ideal and what I would do.

Help me out if you can.

Hold for a minute or two, he'll be done soon

But definitely grab Fuji, w/out dropping Marmol

Sorry you ended up with him, must've lost a bet

Shame on you for owning Marmol and not handcuffing him to Fujikawa. Why would you draft Marmol knowing how shaky he is then jump ship at the first sign of trouble? Hang tight, but find room for the handcuff.
