I really thought that Greinke would get the Cy Young, even Jake Arrieta deserved it. Kudos to the writers voting the way they did!
Arrieta becomes the fourth Cub to win the Cy Young Award. Remember yesterday's post on Joe Maddon and the curse of the Manager of the Year? Are the Cy Young winners cursed too?
Fergie won the Cy Young in 1971. The Cubs traded him to the Rangers after the 1973 season.
Bruce Sutter picked up the award in 1979. He also picked up a huge salary after winning an arbitration hearing. He was sent to the Cardinals one year later.
Again, history says that Arrieta will be gone or hurt in the next couple years.
History needs to be wrong!
