But there is something else that fans and opponents of the Giants alike should fear.
Giants' first baseman Aubrey Huff has enjoyed a brilliant season batting 290 with 26 home runs and driving in 86. He is also playing in his first postseason game in his 10 year career.

He is busting out his rally thong -- or tucking into it anyway. Or at least he is talking about wearing one. At a pregame interview Friday, Huff told the San Francisco Chronicle's fine baseball reporter Henry Schulman that he is wearing his rally thong right now, you know just in case "you're interested."
