Looks Like Wood going to the DL,,,

HOUSTON - The blister on Kerry Wood's right index finger is likely to send him to the disabled list for the 12th time in his career.

"We're coming to the point where we're going to have to come to a conclusion about what to do," manager Lou Piniella said Sunday.

Wood hasn't pitched since July 11, so the Cubs can backdate him on the DL to July 12, meaning he can return Sunday against Florida at Wrigley Field.

That means Carlos Marmol will assume the closer's role in Arizona and for most of the four-game series against the Marlins. Marmol pitched a perfect ninth Sunday with a seven-run lead after being booed at Wrigley Field last week when he blew a five-run lead in the ninth inning.

I sure hope Marmol has turned it back around after his All Star game performance.  THis does bring up the question of who is going to replace Marmol as the set-up guy?
