So if Arrieta is as good as he thinks he is, he'll get real paid. Good for him. I'm rooting for him. (Except when he plays the Cubs.)

I think it only feels the way it does because we've known for two years that it was coming. He put together one of the best half seasons in the history of the game. He had one of the best seasons by a Cubs pitcher all time. He's #8 on the Cubs leaderboard in WPA (in just 4 seasons). 2 no hitters. Its a big loss, but between the fact that the Phillies are very likely paying for past performance, the fact that the rest of the team is awesome and easy to like, and the fact that we replaced him with someone better, yeah its not as big a deal moving forward as it is looking back.

I know some of you guys were there for G7 or other WS games but watching him at the peak of his powers no-hit the Dodgers will probably always be my most memorable sports game watched in person.

This will be the enduring Arrieta memory for me. First playoff appearance of the Theo era, franchise on a 9 game playoff losing streak, wild card winner-take-all game on the road.

He crushed their souls so badly they threw at him just to try and get him off his rhythm. Arrieta responded by stealing second base, and then finishing the last 3 innings of the complete game shutout.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

that game in pittsburgh is the only playoff game i’ve ever been to and i’ll never forget it. i never wanted the cubs to re-sign jake, and that honestly makes me sad for being a smart baseball fan, as i will almost certainly never have another night as fun as jake shouting out that he was going to kill the pirates and then killing the pirates.

great man.

was the arrieta trade the best cubs transaction of our lifetimes? taking into account the fact that they got him for close to nothing, it's crazy how much production they got out of him, and he was a very significant part of the team that finally won the world series.

Depending how old you are, I would put Sosa for Bell as well as Sandberg/Bowa for DeJesus ahead of it. Hendricks/Edwards Jr. for Dempster is right there too.

Hendricks and Christian Villanueva came in the Dempster trade.

Edwards, Olt, Grimm and Neil Ramirez came in the Garza trade.

An underrated part of the Arrieta story is watching him transform into god-mode Jake in 2014. We still had no idea what was going on with the rotation then. It ultimately didn't matter because we still sucked that year. But his ascension was huge in shaping the last three years for us. I still can't believe how perfectly all the pieces fit and how quickly our fortunes changed.

That's right, I knew I would get the Texas trades mixed.

Yeah his 2015 was obviously more fun (and the Dodgers no-hitter was amazing) but 2014 was wild. There was that Boston game where he flirted with a no-hitter and then several more in the same few starts and it quickly went from "no way this is a thing right?" to "is this a thing?" To "it's officially a thing." in record time.

I'm going to go on record and say the Arrieta trade was the best of my lifetime. Yeah, yeah, Sandberg and Sosa both put up 60 WAR or whatever after we traded for them. But I'm willing to multiple everything that happened in 2016 by about 108.

Let's not forget that we also got Pedro Strop in that deal, and he's given us 5 straight seasons with a sub-3 ERA and he'll have compiled the 4th-most WAR of any relief pitcher in Cubs' history by the end of this year.
