Dale Sveum obviously does not understand how to manage a pitching staff. Why Marmol is still closing is beyond me. That better have been his last outing. Also, every single time he tries to get more than an inning from Dolis, he can't do it. He's an excellent one inning pitcher. that's all. pathetic. just pathetic.

This is why we are a last place team. He should have been pulled after the two walks.

I wish this was the only reason. Marmol and poor coaching decisions have not lost us 15 games.

It's amazing how happy I was just an hour ago compared to my mood now. I gotta put the Cub pipe down and clean myself up. I'm gonna stop watching the Cubs for a while.

I'm seriously at the point where I may start writing hand written letters to Epstein, Hoyer and Sevum until they get rid of Marmol.

I'd have pulled him after the first walk... he threw ONE strike in that first at bat! ONE! THAT, my friend is a good indication to any REASONABLY inteligent manager that it is time to make a pitcher change!

He shouldn't have even been out there. Use Dolis and Russell as a committee. The age of closers are long gone. Who the F cares about a single guy getting 45 saves or two guys combining for it? Use the best damn pitcher and that sure as hell isn't Marmol.

Well, Edouardo, there's always tomorrow.

Let us know if they say anything good. I can't even stomach to watch the post game. Why the F does Dempster even try? The guy has an ERA that's right around 1 and can't buy a win.

Their tearing him apart right now. Hopefully he will get it. I like Sveum a lot but leaving Marmol in is unacceptable.

THIS loss hurts... we saw some of the batting come alive... Dempster comes back from the DL and looks absolutely MARVELOUS... get a three run lead... then Marmol (pronounced SHIT) happens...

Honestly, I will not watch another Cubs game as long as Sveum continues to back Marmol and trundle his sorry ass out onto the field. Can't stomach this shit any more. It's EMBARRASSING to be a Cubs fan with this kind of shit happening every fuckin' game!

My gf has hated him from day one. "You can't walk that many guys". "Does he even know where the ball's going?". And for once, she's right about something sports related.

Win loses to a pitcher does not matter. This is the perfect example.
