Closing Strike

With a 24-28 record, the Chicago Cubs are not exactly off to a hot start. But one man is off to a phenomenal start- Carlos Marmol. It seems as if many closers come and go in this era of baseball. Two years ago, Marmol showed signs of becoming a great reliever. Last year, he was not bad, but was not what Cubs fans would be hoping for. But at age 27, Marmol could be headed for a breakout season.

On the forefront, Marmol is 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA, which is fantastic. He has converted 11 out of 13 save opportunities, which is certainly solid. But what is just awesome is the fact that he has struck out 49 batters in 24.2 innings (that’s about two per inning, for those who didn’t pass first grade). That just shows that Marmol possesses dominance right now, and can make him a feared closer.

So Cubs fans, you are used to pain. But in 2010, get ready for a dominant closer.
