Jake Arrieta writes heartfelt goodbye to Chicago

Former Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta, signed with the Phillies Sunday, posted a photo of a handwritten farewell letter to Chicago on Twitter Monday.

 

"I send gracious thanks to the Ricketts family and front office for their commitment to winning at any cost. Going the extra mile to take care of our families was never taken for granted. I was lucky to have dedicated teammates that willingly shed blood, sweat, and tears to achieve our goals. I will miss going to battle with all of you, but look forward to competing on opposite sides moving forward. Lastly, thanks to all Cubs fans around the world for standing with us, and investing in us even when times were tough. You will all be missed dearly. Thanks for the memories.
