Jake Arrieta is a trash fire at the moment, and he does not look like the man to end the Cubs losing streak.
The Cubs have actually lost 10 straight video games. Who did they turn to in hopes of returning to the win column? None aside from Jake Arrieta.
2021 Arrieta is a less than ideal alternative. Arrieta has actually been dreadful of late, providing up seven made runs (10 general) in his last 1.2 innings pitched.
Arrietas concerns date back far longer than that. On the season, he has a 5.57 ERA, and that appears generous.
Chicago Cubs fans furious at Jake Arrieta for first-inning grand slam.
Arrieta could not have had a worst start to his getaway on Tuesday, quiting a first-inning grand slam to Andrew McCutchen of the Phillies before recording a single out.
God I like Jake Arrieta.

Jake Arrieta allowed as lots of ER before an out tonight as he did in 12 starts over Aug & & Sep 2015.
Reduced his season ERA in 11 of his 12 last starts that season. Just lights out. pic.twitter.com/gBTIyMbeth.

How it feels to look in the mirror, understanding that Arrieta begins tonight and youre attempting to stop a double digit losing streak. pic.twitter.com/mpjM0H7sfY.

Absolutely nothing like watching Jake Arrieta throw a 92 miles per hour fastball right down the dadgum middle and for it not to happen to your team.

There were oh a lot of more, coming from just about every fanbase.
The Cubs be worthy of better than what theyre getting from Arrieta today. If theyre not careful, these next couple of games might be the last for the core of Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez and Willson Contreras.
Tom Ricketts is seeing intently.
Were this 2015, Arrieta wouldve been the perfect pitcher to send out there. 2021 Arrieta is a less than ideal choice. Arrieta has been awful of late, giving up 7 made runs (10 total) in his last 1.2 innings pitched.
They need to stop doing this to Arrieta.
This is Jake Arrietas best start for the Phillies.

Great morning to everybody except Jake Arrieta.

Jake Arrieta soon to be grumbling about the Cubs protective alignment all remaining in the bleachers.

None other than Jake Arrieta.
How to load the bases and give up a grand slam in 10 pitches.

Cutch isnt in MVP type any longer, however hes not going to miss that. Cubs fans were appropriately upset.
The veteran righty plainly missed his location by a large margin, and possibly a relocate to the bullpen would be a wise choice by David Ross. Why Ross chose to start him today remains a mystery, honestly. The Cubs season is on the edge.
The Cubs are beyond dead. They need to stop doing this to Arrieta. Just end it.
