If Fujikawa is available he will probably be the CUBS closer. Marmol is certainly going to be traded and CUBS gave Fuji a $10M contract - he was best closer in Japan last year. I just picked him of WW.
The options you write here Span and Fujikawa, both are available. The problem is, who I drop with this line up!!

I would drop Marmol. CUBS tried to deal him last week for Dan Haren but it fell thru. They are going to deal him one way or another because Fuji has a 2 year deal while this is Marmol's last contract year and he's getting $9M. They'er not going to pay 2 closers $20M. Even if they can't trade Marmol, once he blows a save (and he always blows saves) Fuji will take over. It's a roll of the dice but I'd go with Fuji.
