The Rundown: Arrieta Pitching Himself Out of Chicago, El Mago En Fuego

For a while there, Jake Arrieta wasn’t looking like the guy who won the Cy Young Award and who confidently declared that “Aces get seven years.” In fact, he straight-up sucked. Well, at least according to the lofty standards he’d set for himself. Through his first 16 starts, the hirsute hurler had a 4.67 ERA … The post The Rundown: Arrieta Pitching Himself Out of Chicago, El Mago En Fuego appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Cubs 7, Blue Jays 4: The Jake and Javy show

Cubs 7, Blue Jays 4: The Jake and Javy show

This one was harder than it should have been, but Jake Arrieta and Javier Baez were outstanding. I’m going to start at the end of the Cubs’ 7-4 win over the Blue Jays Friday afternoon because that’s where most of the action was. Cruising along with a 5-1 lead courtesy of some strong early offense and outstanding pitching from Jake Arrieta, the Cubs once again got some poor relief pitching, this time from the usually-reliable Pedro Strop. Strop recorded the first two outs on only six pitches in the eighth inning and at that point I was thinking maybe Joe Maddon might even let him throw...
