Cubs send Astros a lot of pizzas for World Series victory

The Cubs paid it forward on Friday by sending the Houston Astros at least 40 pizzas in honor of their World Series win.

It became a tradition in 2014 when the Boston Red Sox, who won the World Series in 2013, sent hometown pizza to the San Francisco Giants front office after their championship.

The Cubs kept that tradition alive by sending pizzas from Fuzzy's.

Last year, the Kansas City Royals sent the Cubs pizzas from Giordano's.

Will the Astros be sending pizza back to the Windy City at this time next year?

Jake Arrieta shaved his beard again and he keeps looking younger

It's become a tradition that Jake Arrieta shaves his beard after the season ends.

The 31-year-old did it again days after the Cubs were eliminated from the 2017 postseason, and it's still a sight we'll never be used to seeing.

Check it out:

Weird, right?

Here's how he looked following the Cubs' World Series win in 2016:

And again in 2015:

It's crazy how much younger he looks.

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a β€œtragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
