According to actor and noted Chicago Cubs fan Bill Murray, reigning National League Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta owes him one.
That's because Murray hooked Arrieta up with a 2 1/2-hour massage from his personal masseuseSaturday night, according to the Chicago Tribune. Murray and some of his brothers were in Atlanta to visit brother Brian Doyle-Murray, who's filming a movie, during the Cubs' weekend series against the Braves.
Arrieta, who allowed two runs in seven innings against the Braves Saturday to earn his 10th win of the season, said he felt great Sunday morning as a result of his star treatment.
"[Arrieta]'s a large guy, and I don't really push him around too much," Murray said. "But I think he really enjoyed his experience."
While in town, Murray and his brothers also spent time with Cubs manager Joe Maddon, who had nothing but kind things to say about the comedic legend.
"He's naturally a very funny guy, but then he has a serious side," Maddon said. "He wanted to know a little bit about Hazleton [Pennsylvania] last night, so I gave him the whole rundown. ... Just a nice, interesting, easy conversation, and whenever the opportunity popped up for him to say something clever, he did. He didn't miss a beat with that. Really a nice man, really easy to be with."
