On Saturday night in Atlanta, Cubs closer Carlos Marmol served up the game-tying home run to B.J. Upton and then two batters later allowed the game-losing home run to younger brother Justin. Marmol's numbers for the year now stand as a conga line of regrets: 1 2/3 IP, 27.00 ERA, 4.80 WHIP.

After those indiginities in Georgia, Cubs fans -- who you think would be grateful for Marmol's efforts to improve their draft position in 2014 -- took to Wikipedia to express their displeasure. Let us survey their handiwork ...

So, in summary, Carlos Marmol, blown-save specialist, is arguably the worst pitcher in the history of Major League Baseball. Fact factory Wikipedia said so.
