On Tuesday, Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta had some strong words for those that have questioned whether he’s used performance enhancing drugs, and on Wednesday, his streak of powerful responses continued.
The latest response came when Arrieta replied to a tweet from ESPN host Stephen A. Smith, who posted a message saying the pitcher shouldn’t “laugh about” the accusations.
Arrieta used his own Twitter account to fire back at Smith:
Smith later responded:
We’re going to go ahead and give Arrieta the win in this exchange. He has responded emphatically to accusations about drug use, and it doesn’t look like he’s planning on stopping, even when he is scheduled to pitch on a given night.
