Kevin Gregg blew a save? Get used to it Cubs fans

Kevin Gregg let up 2 in the 9th and blew the game this afternoon to let the Brewers win over the Cubs.

Should this surprise anyone?

It doesn't surprise me.

In my 40 Fearless Predictions, I said Kevin Gregg was going to be a flop in Chicago... and I stand by that.

In a two week stretch last year between August 15th and August 29th
Gregg blew three saves for the Marlins and lost another game, making his ERA skyrocket from 2.29 to 3.79.

But most importantly, the Marlins went from 2 1/2 games behind the Mets for first place in the East to 7 games out.

He basically torpedoed the amazing run the Marlins went on and spoiled a chance to see a team with a $20 million payroll contend in September.

He couldn't take the heat in Florida... better hand him the keys to the bullpen in Wrigleyville.

Lou. Put Marmol in as the closer NOW!
