Was Arrieta's no-hitter a fluke?

Join the conversation and vote below

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?
