The Cubs needed help in the middle of their bullpen when the season started and Carlos Marmol came out of nowhere to dominate in that role. Marmol has worked in 55 games this season and he is 5-1 with 1 save, a 1.25 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. In 64.2 innings he has allowed only 38 hits, walked 33 batters and whiffed 89. The scary thing about Marmol is that he could be even better if he tightens up his control a little bit. The Cubs are now deadlocked with the Brewers for first place in the National League Central with a 79-73 record. The Cubs must win the division to make the playoffs as they are 5 games behind the Padres for the Wild Card.
