After dropping the first two games to the White Sox, Jake Arrieta pitched and hit his way to a 3-1 Cubs victory.
Or if you accidentally went to the Sox broadcast, you got to hear Hawk Harrelson call him "Air-ee-oughtta".
Anyway, his 2nd complete game, a 107-pitch 2-hitter.
And a 2-run homer.
Yesterday he let his arm and bat say hey man, in all fairness my All-Starness is quite obvious.
Those are pretty good numbers, and Arrieta's importance to the team is HOOOJ.
But who gets to be an All-Star is the least of the Cubs' worries.
Right now, in what is both a blessing and a curse, the Pirates are out-Cardinaling the Cardinals as they go into this break with 3 wins in a row over St. Louis.
This division is so good.
Okay now we turn our attention to the Home Run Derby and pray that neither Anthony Rizzo or Kris Bryant say anything like, "My swing is off" in a couple weeks.
