Was Arrieta's no-hitter a fluke? | The Tylt
Cub's pitcher Jake Arrieta just pitched a no-hitter – making him the only Cubs pitcher to have a no-hitter in back-to-back seasons. Last season, when he pitched a no-hitter, some questioned whether it was a fluke given his less-than stellar performance pitching for the Orioles.
After this year's performance, everyone is pausing to think a bit harder. ESPN Senior Writer Jayson Stark took a good look at the numbers and they are pretty impressive. Sometimes athletes get to a new level and we should stop to appreciate. Then again, remember Jeremy Lin and "Linsanity."
Is Arrieta's stellar performance here to stay?

I admittedly wasn't sure if Arrieta could repeat what he did last season. I admittedly was wrong.— Sean O'Connor (@SOC53) April 22, 2016
There's an old proverb that rings true on nights like tonight and it goes something like "don't underestimate how much Jake Arrieta sucks"— Maq (@elmaquino) April 22, 2016
Remember when people said there's no way Jake Arrieta could repeat his performance from last year and he's a 1 year wonder? Good times...— sam (12-4) (@samgris7) April 22, 2016
