Jake Arrieta quotes

May 30 2017

I know Willson (Contreras) would probably beat whoever charges the mound to the mound, but I'll tell him and Miggy (Montero), Hey, give me 10, 15 seconds to get some work in and then come out and see me.feedback

May 30 2017

I don't think anybody is right or wrong. I thought it was awesome. Every once in a while, it's refreshing to see two teams emotionally charged getting after it. And when something like that happens versus continuing to chirp and talk about it, why don't you go out there and see somebody? That's exactly what happened in the game yesterday. If it's my catcher, I want him to wait and give me an opportunity to do a little damage. I don't want it broken up right away. If it happens, I'll let you know. I'll be ready. You know, I like my chances toe to toe with just about anybody.feedback

There's a lot. Snow ski. Water ski. Skydive. Bungee jump. All those extreme things, really. My friends growing up did that; my brother-in-law skydives all the time. He's asked me to do some jumps, but I can't do it. I want to. Sitting on an inner tube is about all I'll do now. We're fragile as humans. It's easy to get hurt. That's why skiing and all that stuff will be waiting when I'm done.feedback

May 15 2017

Hopefully, I'm still able to do that stuff. I just don't want to throw out both ACLs first time I'm off the mound.feedback

May 15 2017

We went to Breckenridge [in Colorado] and a bunch of my friends went skiing, and I'm just sitting there.feedback

At first, no one really liked it, to be honest. I just thought it was really cool to be that close to fans and have that kind of subtle interactions with them without having a lot of verbal communication – some eye contact, some smiles. People would make some funny comments that I would get a kick out of. It was nice to have that to keep loose before the game. But they did a tremendous job with the 'pens the way they are.feedback

Apr 28 2017

It's not ideal. At the end of the day, it wasn't my best.feedback

Apr 28 2017

We got beat today based on their output in the first inning. That was on me.feedback

Apr 28 2017

You'll see a lot of strange things in this game. You'll see streaks that are very impressive and you'll see them end like they did tonight or the last couple of starts.feedback

Apr 22 2017

I feel like I did my job after that first inning or so. After that, you want to protect the lead and get as deep into the game as you can.feedback

Apr 22 2017

We've had some hiccups, but we've been picked up by our offense. As starting pitchers, we have to take advantage of our offense.feedback

Feb 15 2017

You get the goosebumps and the positive nervous anxiety to start another year.feedback

Feb 15 2017

The appreciation from the fans all across the country continues to pour in and that's a really good feeling. There's support in California to Florida, where I'm at in Texas. I'll randomly get, people will walk up and I'll get a pat on the back from lifelong Cubs fans or people that just had an appreciation for what we were able to do and just like to come up and say hello. It feels great to say you're a world champion, but to be able to try and repeat and do it all again would be a little bit more special for us.feedback

Kris can't go anywhere without getting recognized. He's got beautiful hair and being 6-foot-6 it's a little hard to stay hidden for him. But the beard for me kind of gives me away. I was able to fly under the radar for a couple weeks without facial hair but it came back pretty quickly.feedback

Feb 15 2017

Time flies really quickly. It feels like only a few months ago that I was traded over here and started my career as a Cub in 2013. I've had some incredible experiences with this organization. I owe a lot to this team and this organization and the ownership. I don't want to see that time come to an end, my time as a Cub. Unfortunately the business side of the game shows its head every once in a while. But I still think there's opportunity and chances that we can have good conversations as far as an extension's concerned.feedback

Feb 15 2017

Financially it's not a big worry for myself individually. The less of a distraction that can play on the team and everyone in this clubhouse the better. I don't typically like to verbalize a lot of the things from an individual contract situation just because it can take some attention away from what we're trying to do here collectively. I don't mind addressing and talking about it if those things do come up. Again, my main focus is going to continue to be trying to help these guys as much as I can to prepare for our season this year.feedback

Feb 15 2017

I think there's an open dialogue there and I believe we will have talks. It's not my No. 1 priority. I just wanted to focus on my health and coming into camp as well rested and in as good of shape as I possibly can. If we have those conversations, we'll sit down and hash some things out and see if we can get something worked out. If it happens, great, if not then I'll continue to move forward and take it day by day.feedback

Nov 02 2016

Last game of the year, Game 7 of the World Series. Everybody's pretty much available tomorrow.feedback

Nov 02 2016

I knew that was all we were going to need.feedback

Oct 27 2016

That's really not the focus in a game like this. Whether they get a hit or not really doesn't affect the way you continue to approach that lineup, especially with a five-run lead.feedback

Oct 22 2016

But it's really not something we focus on at all. So we just kind of disregard it and go out and play.feedback

Oct 17 2016

From a pitching perspective, you want to be aggressive early because of the fact that it is a little more difficult to pick up some rotations and spin on pitches when the shadow's kind of in between and then it starts to creep out to the mound.feedback

Oct 17 2016

I'm in a much better place. Going through that last year has prepared myself as well as the rest of the guys mentally for a longer run this year, and we've been able to handle the moments mentally a lot better as well as physically.feedback

Oct 08 2016 - AT&T

Yeah, it's possible. I don't see why not. I think it's possible for all our guys to elevate themselves and pitch at a high level or compete on defense or at the plate at a level higher than they have currently. That's having a lot of confidence in the guys we have. We expect to do some special things this season, and we shouldn't think otherwise.feedback
