Appropriate, perhaps, after noting how good the Cubs’ bullpen has been this year, even in the face of serious injuries to key arms, there is bad news to share:
Theo says Brandon Morrow's season is over.

Even as I know this was always a strong possibility, the fact that he’d done the simulated game thing successfully and was set to make an appearance this week had my hopes up. I presume Morrow must have felt something this week and the Cubs decided that was that. Morrow, you’ll recall, was trying to come back from a biceps issue and a stress reaction in his elbow.
I presume we’ll get more details later on, but for now, it’s just bad news: no more Morrow this year, even through the playoffs.
