So who's the Cubs' closer now?

ST. LOUIS -- Alright, now that the Chicago Cubs have completed their annual pulling of their closer from his job, who should be next in line to save games? Last year was a more obvious situation as Kyuji Fujikawa was signed as a late-inning guy and when Carlos Marmol lost the closer’s gig, Fujikawa was next in line -- until he got hurt. Then the Cubs had to bring Kevin Gregg back and he actually stabilized things for a while. Fast forward to this year, Gregg is gone, Fujikawa is still recovering from Tommy John surgery and Jose Veras has been banished like so many before him.
