Does Gaudin Fill The "Void" In The 'Pen?

So the Cubs acquired Rich Harden as you may have heard. Some guy from Oakland, I never heard of. Ok so I'm excited. Beyond exited. But actually what sweetened the deal for me was the acquisition of Chad Gaudin in addition to Harden. Gaudin has done a good (not Marmol-esque) job in Oakland this year and has even filled the spot starter void. I think prior to this deal, the Cubs were looking for a player like Colorado's Brian Fuentes, an established out-getter for the 'pen to give Lou more options late in the game. Do you think that Gaudin is enough? Should the Cubs try to market him or someone like Cedeno as Troy Tulowitzki (sp?) has just gone on the DL again? What do you think?
