Jake Arrieta has shaved and looks barely recognizable

Jake Arrieta has gone back to a clean-shaved look, and he is barely recognizable. Arrieta’s wife Brittany shared a photo on Twitter Sunday of her with her husband. The pitcher looks completely different.

In appreciation of Jake Arrieta

In appreciation of Jake Arrieta

The Cubs and Jake were good for each other In Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, Jake Arrieta revised his role as the stopper. He’s been exceptional in the postseason and on Wednesday night he ensured that the Cubs would not be swept in the NLCS. The thing I think we miss about Jake sometimes, however, is his greatness for the Chicago Cubs, and I’m not talking about the stint in 2015 where he was the best pitcher in the history of the game (I’m sure most of the people reading this know I’m not being hyperbolic there, but if you don’t, read this). No, see, Jake was...

Cubs Heroes and Goats Playoff Edition: NLCS Game 5

Another successful Cubs season comes to a close You’ll forgive me if I use Jake Arrieta for our picture for consecutive columns. No, he didn’t make a surprise appearance on one of the podiums. But if you’ve ever read my signature on one of my comments, you might know that for well over a year my signature has read Sometimes you have to tip your hat to the other guy. As I write this morning and as I was thinking about what to write, that was largely what I came up with for today. Today I tip my cap to the Los Angeles Dodgers. They dominated the Cubs in every imaginable way in this...

2017 National League Championship Series Game 5 preview: Cubs vs. Dodgers, Thursday 10/19, 7 p.m. CT

The Cubs go for their second straight win over the Dodgers. It’s another beautiful day in Chicago, sunny, light winds, temperatures near 70, dropping into the 60s at game time, perfectly gorgeous for late October. I’d say it’s a great day for the Cubs to win another baseball game. Notes for Game 5: Javier Baez became the fifth Cub to have a multi-homer game in the postseason with his two-homer game in Game 4. The others: Gary Matthews, Game 1, 1984 NLCS, Eric Karros, Game 4, 2003 NLDS, Alex Gonzalez, Game 3, 2003 NLCS, and Aramis Ramirez, Game 3, 2003 NLCS. With Jake Arrieta’s...

Cub Tracks stays alive!

Quade’s anniversary, It’s not a Goodbye, the Blue Halo, and other bullets CUBS WIN! FLY THE W! Previously, Cub Tracks warmed up but the Cubs didn’t. Last night, they warmed up just enough. One Willson Contreras moonshot and two Javier Baez bombs were ridden to victory on the arms of Jake Arrieta and Wade Davis. Al will tell you all about it in his recap. Josh’s rapid recap is here. The thread is good reading. Baez blowing a bubble mid Home Run swing. Totally Javy. Love it. @ESPNChiCubs @Cubs pic.twitter.com/AQVPNqdkqv— Austin Fax (@justthefax44) October 19, 2017 It was great...

Arrieta excels in possible Cubs swan song

If Wednesday was Jake Arrieta's last outing for the Cubs, he wanted to savor it. "I took a little bit of extra time between pitches just to look around, foul pole to foul pole, behind home plate, just to relish it and take it in," Arrieta said after helping the Cubs avoid elimination and beat the Dodgers, 3-2, to extend their season.

Chicago Cubs Rapid Recap: Cubs 3, Dodgers 2

Jake Arrieta, Javier Baez and Wade Davis combine to keep the Cubs season alive. Do not go gentle into that good night, . . .Rage, rage against the dying of the light.—Dylan Thomas. The Cubs could have played their last game of the season tonight but they didn’t, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 in game four of the National League Championship Series. The Cubs still trail the best-of-seven series 3 games to 1, but as long as there is life there is hope, and the Cubs are still alive. They came back last year down 3 games to 1 with the final two games on the road. Speaking of not...
