MVP of Yesterday (Sept. 22, 2015): Jake Arrieta

Why did the Orioles get rid of Jake Arrieta? Why didn’t they let him throw his cutter when he was there? How do you hit against Jake Arrieta? These are all tough questions that may never be answered. The Brewers certainly didn’t answer them last night, as the Cubs pitcher struck out 11 and gave up just 3 hits and a single walk, while getting a hit of his own for good measure. So, he’s the MVP of Yesterday.

  1. He had an era averaging over 5 in 3 years with Baltimore. Kind of easy to see why they didn’t want him. Kind of like Chris Davis with Texas. He didn’t really perform until he got to Baltimore.
