His dyed, jet-black thicket inspired a ''Fear the Beard'' campaign in the Bay Area and beyond. Players say superstition, busy schedule and hectic cross-country travel are among the reasons for ditching the razor.

Albert Pujols (240 million) had three fewer hits than A-Rod in this postseason, because...

Giants advance to World Series to play Tigers

I thought this game would be over by the 5th inning. Boy, I was wrong. It was over by the 3rd inning in a 9-0 Giants win. I figured the Cardinals would stay cold and the Giants would continue to get clutch hits, or the other way around. The former. Not the latter.
