05:57 AM ET 12.04 | Gordon Whittenmyer reports via Twitter that the Cubs are again shopping reliever Carlos Marmol. Source: Cubs have told Marmol he's trade candidate but they won't "give him away." Marmol was traded to the Angels for Dan Haren last month, before the deal fall through because of medical concerns about Haren's hip. With newly signed Japanese import Kyuji Fujikawa likely taking over closing duties, the Cubs are in an even better position to trade Marmol.

Anyone want Mr. Ball Four? It's going to cost you. Don't know anything about the new Jap, but I'd take my chances with him

The Cubs need to keep Marmol because he keeps the game interesting in the ninth because of his wildness.

That's hardly a reason to keep him. He would have made it even more interesting by shutting down the order 1...2...3

I think he was just being a tad sarcastic.
