So if Wood goes down, I think there is a decent chance that the Cubs could go with Howry or Dempster- so Im just saying you should temper your saves expectations- I think it's about a 30-40% chance Marmol becomes the full-time closer at some point during the season

Exactly. Wood will start as the closer. He will then get rocked or get injured, so Marmol will close for the rest of the season.
