A couple of days ago, Peter Gammons wrote a scathing article about Carlos Marmol pitching in the Dominican Winter League playoffs, and then the World Baseball Classic, and then in the season for the Cubs.
Well, according to a thread at Sons of Ivy, the ESPN ticker has reported Marmol will not pitch in the WBC at the request of the Cubs. I’m trying to find confirmation elsewhere (though Sons of Ivy is usually very reliable).
