Cubs go with Gregg over Marmol

Per Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Cubs have named Kevin Gregg as their closer over Carlos Marmol.

During the past two seasons, Gregg was the Marlins closer. He saved 32 games in 2007 and 29 games in 2008. Last year, Gregg also blew nine save opportunities.

As the set-up man to Kerry Wood last season, Marmol saved seven games and was credited with 30 holds.

Marmol is likely the team's closer of the future, but will remain the set-up man for now.
