It’s just a blister, but it’s enough to derail Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta on this night. Good thing it’s still just March.

It’s okay, breathe Chicago Cubs fans. It’s going to be alright.
#Cubs ace Jake Arrieta does not sound at all concerned about blister issues and believes he will be ready for Opening Day start.

Blisters seem innocent enough, but we know all too well how cumbersome and annoying they can be. Especially for arguably the most important person on the field for a given team, and in this case, the monster that is Jake Arrieta.
For a team coming into 2016 with monster expectations, the last thing you want is a blister causing issues. But hey, it’s a blister.
It’s going to be fine. Remember, it’s a 162 game season. World Series championships aren’t won in March.
