Release Carlos Marmol Now

As I write this, following the game on my work computer, the Cubs just removed Marmol from the game in the 9th after yet another far too frequent blow up, possibly jeopardizing a great game by Jeff Samardzija. The team is paying Marmol $9.8M this season, his walk year. They aren't going to get anything worthwhile for him and no team would be foolish enough to take on any of the money. Rather than have this guy be a cancer on the team all year, they need to cut their losses and dump him. What more do they need to see or know about the guy? This is what he is and he isn't going to get any better. If the team is truly rebuilding, do it without the pitcher who throws gasoline on opposing teams' rallies, the pitcher who opponents have learned that all you have to do is stand there with the bat on your shoulder, and before you know it, there's men on first and second with no one or only one out. Cut him TODAY.
