Don't you just want to rub that beard?
Mayor Francis Slay is polling his St. Louis constituency on their favorite local beard this week, and gaining momentum in the polls is the man everyone's talking about: Cardinals pitcher and NLCS MVP Michael Wacha.

Wacha has tough competition, including entrepreneur Joe Edwards, County Executive Charlie Dooley and even Quentin the Miracle Dog, who is beating Wacha by 6 percentage points.

But while Wacha's beard, and his pitches, are impressing his St. Louis fanbase, is his modest facial covering enough to face the Boston Red Sox, a.k.a. Beardtown, the Beard Sox and "the greatest bearded baseball team since the House of David?"

So will Wacha's beard survive the World Series? Wacha told a Los Angeles Times sports reporter:


(By the way, not every Red Sox fan likes the beards:)

It's his face, he can shave it if he wants. Personally, I like men with beards, though. Show's they are actually men and not little boys.

David Wayne Black has been growing his since the Giants beat us in the NLCS last year.

I think the bushy beard is going to end up like the mullet. A very regrettable hair decision that everyone will laugh at for the rest of time. Seriously.

Don't change a thing on Wacha! He's perfect the way he is!

Do what makes him happy and comfortable. Having the beard won't make him player better or worse and neither will shaving it sodo what he wants.

The players should do whatever the hell they want, who cares? I shaved my beard because I wanted to. If Wacha wants to, sure. If he doesn't, great.

Keep the beard, Mike. You wore it all season and got us into the World Series with it. So, don't tempt fate.

And speaking of baseball players' beards, nothing on earth is as disgusting as the beard of Dodger's player Brian Wilson. Talk about a creepy looking fuck. Looks like the beast who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart. If I owned the Dodgers I wouldn't allow someone to look like that wearing a Dodger's uniform, no matter how talented he may be. He would be the scarriest looking Trick or Treater without a costume.

Keep the beard Mike. You wore it all season and got us where we are today, so don't ruin a good thing!!

Now speaking of baseball players' beards, I have NEVER SEEN ANYTHING AS HIDEOUS AND DISGUSTING as the beard of Dodger's player Brian Wilson. With that beard and a shaved head with a mohawk  it makes him look like the beast that kidnapped Elizabeth Smart. Anyway, he's a fucking creep. Even the Duck Dynasty boys are ridiculing him!
