    The Chicago Cubs' season is over with, and that means it's time to say goodbye to the famous beard of one of the team's best hurlers. 

    That pitcher is Jake Arrieta, and his legendary facial hair is no more, as he shaved it off following the Cubs' elimination from the postseason. 

    Arrieta's wife Brittany posted a photo of the clean shaven pitcher, who will head into free agency once the World Series concludes: 

    Arrieta will be free to sign with any team this offseason, but has not ruled out a return to the Cubs. He has won a World Series title, and two games in that series, and a Cy Young Award during his time in Chicago, but he will be an unrestricted free agent after agreeing to a one-year deal that covered the 2017 season.
