Jake is Back in Town

Jake Arrieta and the Phillies are in Chicago for a three-game series.  The Phillies rotation is set and Jake will not be facing the Cubs.  Anthony Rizzo asked Jake why he was ducking the Cubs.  He also said if Arrieta did pitch against the Cubs that he'd ask Maddon to lead off so he could take Jake deep (Rizzo has hit home runs several times  from the leadoff spot).

Over the winter it seemed on paper that the better move for the Cubs was to take Darvish over Arrieta.  Right now that seems like the wrong move.  Only time will tell.

Jake was a stud during his time with the Cubs and he will always be a 2016 hero.

Here are a few of my favorite Jake Arrieta cards.
