Chicago Cubs: Hopefully, this ends Darvish’s woes in Chicago

Unfortunately, that personal knowledge that something doesn’t feel right often has to match up with what team doctors and trainers find as well, lest the player risk becoming a laughingstock or punching bag for ignorant fans and media members.

Thankfully and unfortunately all at the same time (if that’s possible), after months of speculation and naysayers, it was revealed that Yu has a stress reaction and bone bruise that would have probably ended up being something torn or broken given enough time.

Let’s hope this diagnosis and being shut down for the season will give Yu, the organization and fans at least a little peace of mind.

Next. Who's in and who's out in a postseason rotation?. dark

Just don’t count on it when it comes to some “fans.”
