Which we do, courtesy of MLB.com.
It's pretty simple to use, really. Just click on the link or the picture, print out the beard, tape it over your pumpkin and stab your pumpkin with sharp objects in the dark spaces of the stencil area.
Or be more careful and actually try to recreate a decent-looking piece of pumpkin art. It could, actually, win you stuff if you enter it into the Giants' official pumpkin-carving contest to win an autographed baseball from a Giants player.
Take a photo of your carving and submit it for your chance to win a Giants player autographed baseball. Pumpkins will be based on creativity and overall carving ability. Photos must be in jpeg format, no smaller than 720 x 486 pixel height and width and no larger than 1...

Here is the rest of San Francisco Chronicles' John Shea's list regarding the top free agents and possible destinations:
– Carlos Beltran: Shea believes that his “tender knees” will keep him away from center field, and believes he could go to the American League so he can be a designated hitter. The chances of him returning to San Francisco are 50/50 according to...
The Giants are sitting at home watching the World Series this year, but not all's bad. For instance, there's the bright spot that was Sergio Romo's 2011 season.
Romo finished the year with 48 innings pitched, eight earned runs allowed, 70 strikeouts, a 1.50 ERA, a 0.708 WHIP, an unholy 239 ERA+ (his ERA relative to league average), and a 13.1 strikeouts per nine innings...
I have been shirking my responsibilities a little bit here with things getting crazy with my real life responsibilities but don't worry things will start picking up as we turn on the hot stove going into the winter. I've got some stuff coming up in the next few days so be on the look out for that.
Up today is a look back at the Giants catchers with the rest of the...
Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong is among the finalists for the National League Comeback Player of the Year in the annual Players Choice Awards balloting, which is reserved exclusively for Major Leaguers.
This is a very odd cast of characters which one wouldn’t normally expect to be looped together. As Jimmy Traina explains:
This is really a combination of Political, Music and Sports Video of the Day. It’s a video for San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and it features Giants reliever Brian Wilson acting all Brian Wilson-y and Ronnie Lott, among others, singing MC Hammer‘s 2...

Ashkon has produced a music video he hopes will help San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee keep his job.
The video features the likes of MC Hammer, Brian Wilson and Marissa Mayer and is to the tune of "2 Legit 2 Quit."
