Not so fast on those “Carlos Marmol is going to be traded soon” reports

Mar 6, 2013, 9:08 AM EDT

Yesterday  Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reported that the Cubs “will most likely” trade closer Carlos Marmol before Opening Day. Au contraire says Gordon Wittenmyer:

So how does this work? Does Levine totally ignore Wittenmyer in the Cubs’ press box today or does he go up to him and say “nuh uh!”? I almost feel like going over to Mesa today to watch that instead of going over to Goodyear to watch the Indians.

    marmol is such an unknown quantity most times, i hope the tigers aren’t seriously entertaining the idea of him anchoring the pen. he’s a mess.

      The worst is knowing that someone would have been willing to give up an ace, maybe a #2, a few years ago for him.

        I agree, why pick up a closer just as wild as your rookie. Just work with Rondon and the rest of the bullpen.
