Arrieta 4-hits Pirates in Cubs' 4-0 win

PITTSBURGH (AP) Maybe it's time to stop treating the Chicago Cubs like they're too young to be here.

The stage they seemingly weren't ready for now seems hardly big enough to contain them. Not with Jake Arrieta dealing. Not with a group of 20-somethings in the field that play with swagger and confidence. Not with a manager adept at keeping the minds of his rapidly maturing team decidedly clutter-free.

Watch out baseball, the Cubs - yes, the Cubs - are ahead of schedule. And the timetable only seems to be picking up speed for Joe Maddon's bunch.
