Skin Blues wrote:I agree to an extent, but they still only gave Parnell save opps when Francisco was on the DL last season. Even when Francisco was partially injured they'd demote Parnell and keep throwing Frankie and his 5.77 ERA/1.61 WHIP out there for saves, despite Parnell having a pretty great year, finishing with a 2.5 ERA. Are we sure they won't do that again? Have they said anything?

Kevin Gregg retired the Marlins in order in the ninth inning on Friday, preserving a two-run lead and notching his second save of the season.
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, this in no way means that Kevin Gregg is now the closer for the Cubs. Carlos Marmol wasn't available after working three of the previous four days. With Kyuji Fujikawa expected back from the disabled list soon, don't go wasting too much of your free agent budget on Gregg.
Kevin Gregg tallied his third save of the season Saturday as the Cubs topped the Marlins 3-2.
Gregg retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning, fanning one. The 34-year-old right-hander has not allowed a run in five appearances with the Cubs and is 3-for-3 in save opportunities. While the good times are doubtful to last, he needs to be owned right now in all standard mixed fantasy leagues.
