JAKE ARRIETA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chicago Cubs Finish with a Winning Home Record, First Time Since ’09

One of the few highlights baseball wise for the Chicago Cubs this season was that they finished this year with a winning record at home. A small step in the right direction, as this is something they haven’t done since finishing 46-34 back in 2009. Going back to that season, the Cubs were in 1st place in late July-early August. Then the wheels started to come off as Carlos Zambrano...

Jake Arrieta plays spoiler role as Cardinals lose 3-1 to Cubs, magic number now at 3

The Cardinals couldn’t clinch the NL Central title of the final game of the 100th season at Wrigley Field Wednesday night, but they could’ve inched closer, which they did. However, they weren’t able to take care of their own business. Instead they would get some help from a reeling Atlanta team. Jake Arrieta was the difference of the entire game, on the mound and at the plate...

Jake Arrieta Emerges as an Ace for Chicago Cubs

Jake Arrieta dominated the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday night. The Chicago Cubs hurler threw his first career shutout, surrendering just one hit and one walk while fanning 13 hitters. It was the best performance in what has been an excellent season for the 28 year-old right-hander. Arrieta broke into the major leagues with the Baltimore Orioles in 2010. In parts of four seasons with...

Jake Arrieta has one-hit stuff

Jake Arrieta had an almost-no-hitter tonight. Your browser does not support iframes. Unfortunately, Brandon Phillips hit a deep drive that Matt Szczur missed by inches, and that was that. This will not be the last time we see Arrieta flirt with a no-no, I think.  Remember this?  And there were other outings where he didn’t give up a hit for a while, including the game I went...

Chicago Cubs: Is Jake Arrieta the new ace?

.163 is the batting average opponents have had against Jake Arrieta since the trade of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. This is the type of stat that many thought Arrieta would be able to put up year in and year out. Once a top prospect in the Baltimore Orioles organization, Arrieta never could find his groove with the Orioles. In 69 career games pitched (63 starts), Arrieta posted...
