One thing I am not, is a huge sports enthusiast. I may not really understand what the loss of a player like Jake Arrieta will mean to the Chicago Cubs, but I do know that I love the "heart" of the Cubs organization.

Sure, Cubs fans have known for awhile that Jake Arrieta's contract was not being renewed by the Chicago Cubs, but the news of him signing with the Philladelphia Phillies made his departure a reality.

I'd be lying If I said this "thank you" from the Cubs to Arrieta didn't give me the goosies and make my eyes water a little.

I think it's what they said in the post text of this video that really got me..

For what you’ve done for this franchise.
For what you’ve done for this city. 
For what you do for the game.

Thank you, Jake Arrieta.

I'm willing to bet it will do the same to you....

Fare thee well, Arrieta. When it comes time to retire, please come back to Chicago and do it as a Cub.
