« Bears win. Packers lose. Lets dance. (cartoon gif) | Main | Superman brings home some gold. HASHTAG JAKE ARRIETA. »

November 18, 2015



I was holding back on my elation over the KB-ROY and JM-MOY, waiting for the completion of the 2015 trifecta with JA-CYA.

Shame on the voters if Jake doesn't win it. After all, as good as Kris and Joe's years were, Jakes year was even better... more phenomenal than any pitcher in recent memory. Koufax-like. Gibson-like. Jenkins-like. Maddux-Like.


As for the "Manager of the Century plus 8" award, I fully EXPECT that to happen. Whether it's "plus 8" or "plus 9" doesn't really matter. It's coming...soon.

Get ready.


OK...we got the trifecta!

Congratulations to Jake Arrieta, 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner!


Next year: Maybe an MVP? (could one of several Cubs).

But I'll trade it all for the 2016 NL Central and World Series...

I'm not afraid to say it anymore. I've graduated from hope to expectation.

Congratulations Kris, Jake, and Joe!! All well deserved!

That was sure a fun year. I'm looking forward to the future and to these guys becoming Chicago legends!

Man, that last one was... maybe it's a Cub Fan thing.
I just didn't expect the respect.
Jake freaking Arrieta, Cy Young award winner.
23 years since Maddux.
