Jake Arrieta, Cubs reportedly far apart on long-term deal

Stud right-hander Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs has looked like the most dominant pitcher in Major League Baseball this year. With a 5-0 record to go along with a 1.00 ERA, a 0.78 WHIP, and 32 strikeouts in his first five starts, Arrieta is somehow managing to top a 2015 campaign in which he beat out the likes of Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke to win the NL Cy Young Award. But...

Jake Arrieta responds to allegations of PED use

Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta is pitching at an otherworldly level right now. In his last 24 starts, he’s 20-1 with a 0.86 ERA. He is 4-0 with a 0.87 ERA so far this year. Arrieta keeps hitters guessing and is getting them out many different ways. Rather than other pitchers who rely on just strikeouts, ground balls or fly balls to record outs, he utilizes a mix of all three. The...

Reds had awesome recap of Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter

There wasn’t a whole lot the Cincinnati Reds could say after they were no-hit and blown out by Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs, but the person running the team’s official Twitter account did what he or she could. In addition to being no-hit, the Reds lost 16-0. They did, however, manage to draw four walks and prevent Arrieta from tossing a perfect game. That seems like a good...

Cubs fan jailed following no-hitter celebration

No-hitters are cool, we get it. However…you’ve got to leave the celebration on the field. Following Jake Arrieta’s gem Thursday night in Cincinnati, an overzealous Chicago Cubs fan got into the postgame scrum and congratulated the pitcher.

Five amazing stats from Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter

Don’t feel bad, Cincinnati Reds. It’s not like anyone has really solved Jake Arrieta of late. Just as he did some eight months and a mere nine starts ago, Arrieta completed a no-hitter on Thursday night at Great American Ballpark. It was last Aug. 30 when the Chicago Cubs right-hander dominated the Los Angeles Dodgers for his first career no-no. That came in the midst...

WATCH: Cubs fan crashes no-hitter on field, gets pulled away by police

One brazen Chicago Cubs fan was a Cincinnati policeman away from sharing an unforgettable moment with his team. After Jake Arrieta threw a no-hitter Thursday against the Reds, a random fan in a white T-shirt and Cubs hat was seen crashing the on-field celebration before being pulled away by security: If the fan ends up in jail over his actions, it might have been worth it. How...

Jake Arrieta’s dominance reaching more historic levels

The “friendly confines” of Wrigley Field have been just that for Jake Arrieta. Conversely, facing the Cubs ace at the old park on the north side of Chicago is quite the unpleasant experience. On Saturday, it was the Colorado Rockies who were rudely greeted by the wrath of the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner. Arrieta went eight shutout innings in a 6-2 Cubs victory — making...
