Morneau Out For Season

I had a full post written up (and posted briefly) discussing Justin Morneau's annual late-season slumps, but it was revealed late last night that the first baseman will miss the remainder of the season due to a stress fracture in his back, which might help explain why he was going through the worst late slumps of his entire career this season.

This severely damages any hopes the Twins might have had of mounting a miraculous comeback in the AL Central, but I don't have the time or energy to go real in-depth on the matter right now. Here's hoping Morneau can recover fully and come back strong next season.
