After Saturday’s loss, Chicago Cub fans have completely given up on Carlos Marmol, and manager Dale Sveum has been thrown into the fire right along with him. Fans are getting tired of seeing Marmol trotted out to the mound game after game, only to see him give fans heart attacks, and finding a way to grab defeat from the jaws of victory. They want Marmol gone from the team, and believe that because Sveum insists on using him in meaningful games, that he should also be shown the door. I can understand fan’s frustrations, and wanting to see Marmol catapulted off the team. After all, with the way he has pitched since the end of the 2010 season, who can blame fans for cringing every time his name is announced as the man coming out of the pen. But calling for the head of Sveum should not even cross the minds of the overly frustrated Cub fans. Yes, I am getting just as tired of seeing Marmol put into games just to see him load the bases, bring the game tying or winning run up to the plate...
