Long-Term Deal in the Works for Carlos Marmol – Wrigley Field 2/4/11

Posted on 04 February 2011 by Lou

Following up our Carlos Marmol story from the other day, it looks like a long-term deal is imminent for Carlos Marmol.  The Cubs have indicated that a physical exam during spring training will be a prerequisite for the deal to become official.  This is not a big surprise.  The Cubs want to lock up Marmol long-term, but they also want to make sure there isn’t anything to be concerned with from a health perspective.  Let’s hope Marmol complies with the exam request and then we’ll be excited to hear about the terms of the long-term deal. Marmol saved 38 out of 43 chances for the Cubs in 2010.  He struck out 138 hitters over just 77+ innings.  That 15.99 K’s per 9 innings was a major league record.  Give the guy a deal and let him go to work.  Just think what he could do if the Cubs actually had an offense one of these years…
