Yu Darvish done for season with injuries to right elbow, triceps

Yu Darvish’s injury-plagued first season in Chicago has come to an end as the Cubs announced the right-hander will miss the rest of the season with more damage in his pitching arm.

An MRI has revealed a stress reaction in Darvish’s right elbow and a triceps strain, the Cubs said Tuesday, injuries that will force him to be shut down for six weeks.

Maybe Daniel Murphy knows how to pitch.

The way the rotation has been this year, I'd say there's a non-zero chance we might see this.

At this rate, they should maybe activate Darvish just to stand at the plate if they ever get the bases loaded.

I went for the obvious joke. I didn't see it until I went into the other thread just now.

Rick Hahn would be willing to have a conversation about James Shields.

Etymologically speaking, Yu Darvish's name roughly translates to "benign influence of our ancestors."

And what are other ways of saying "influence?" We might say someone had an impact. Or maybe affected how things turned out. Or ... left their mark.

So it can be said that Darvish shows the mark of those who came prior to us.

Jesus, the Cubs really should have known.

Maybe they thought he could carry the burden like a cord of wood.
