The Chicago Cubs acquired reliever Kevin Gregg in a trade with the Florida Marlins on Thursday, a move that appears to end Kerry Wood’s career with the team.

Wood, the 1998 NL Rookie of the Year who saved 34 games this year, had been the longest-tenured player on the Cubs. General manager Jim Hendry said Wood was deserving of a three- or four-year deal and the Cubs are not prepared to offer him one.

In addition to the right-handed Gregg, who was the Marlins’ closer until the final month last season, Chicago also has a talented setup man in Carlos Marmol, who could close.

I'd bet they use Gregg as a setup guy and Marmol as closer. And, if they choose not to, I would bet it ends up that way by the end of May.

It's the Cubs. Something will happen to screw this up. Gregg may blow out his arm.
