Last quote by Jake Arrieta

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

Jake Arrieta quotes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
