BOSTON —The Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals tied for the best record in baseball in the regular season.

But if you’re looking for a favorite in the World Series that begins at Fenway Park on Wednesday, it’s got to be the Red Sox — by a whisker.

Boston’s dugout is overflowing with facial hair these days, part of a bonding ritual that began when Jonny Gomes showed up scruffy at spring training.
