And Jake Arrieta made it three-for-three for Cubs winning awards. That is all.

From Comcast Sportsnet Chicago:

From CBS Chicago:

From ESPN Chicago:


  • [Video] Pat Hughes talks NL CY Young. Pat talks to Harold Reynolds and Matt Vasgersian about Jake's chances.
  • Jake Arrieta built a strong case for the NL CY Young. It was a tough call, but the righthander's stats speak for themselves, and the voters agreed.

From the Chicago Tribune:

  • Chad Yoder: After Rookie of the Year, what will Kris Bryant do next? Long-form analysis of the player's possibilities.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

  • Kyle Thele: Los Angeles thinks Jake Arrieta deserved to win the Cy Young. According to a poll done by the Los Angeles Times, a small majority of fans think Jake Arrieta should have been the award winner. And they were right, too!
  • Kyle also reports that Joe Maddon wants to open a restaurant in Chicago. Maddon owns a restaurant in Tampa, and his family owns one in his hometown.
  • And finally, he reports that David Ross plans to retire at the end of this season. The catcher will play one more year and then hang up his cleats. He is expected to put them back on in a coaching capacity.

From Cubs Den:

  • North Side Irish offers the Rumor Thread, discussing many of the same things previously offered, with slightly different twists.
  • John Arguello discusses the Manager of the Year. There are good managers and there are impact managers, he says.

From Bleacher Nation:

From Cubs Insider:

  • Evan Altman offers the Rundown: Bryant named ROY in unanimous vote, Sammy Sosa's birthday party is turnt, AL ROY results, Rich Hill's rebirth. Justin Bour got votes for the ROY. Names are named. Sammy can party. Rich Hill is a great story.
  • Todd Johnson asks which Cubs rookie might have "next" for 2016? Albert Almora? Willson Contreras? Pierce Johnson? Ryan Williams?
  • Randy Holt writes about why Alex Gordon is or isn't a fit with the Cubs, and explains his work. Good analysis of the pros and cons in this discussion.
