Game Recaplet - Marmol won't be fine, probably
Cubs lose 8-3. We struck out a lot against Tim Lincecum, which happens often. Not cause to smack the panic button.
Carlos Marmol is useless, though. Time to smack the panic button. We need to find out if there is some substance somewhere in the Cubs' clubhouse, uniforms, somewhere that makes otherwise confident grown men like Marmol and Hill shit themselves when on a pitching mound.
Trust me on this one, kids...he will never throw an important, successful pitch for us ever again. You'll see Hill up here before Marmol gets himself straightened out.
Time to re-evaluate just who is untouchable and who isn't, because if Hendry doesn't make a trade for some quality pitching help in the next seven days, then the mopes across the street on Sheffield need to start planning on adding another digit to the EAMUS CATULI board. Because this team, as constructed, ain't winning no pennants.
That is all.
