The [Friday] Papers
Sorry, Sox fans!
* "As the Twins celebrated in the middle of the diamond, the White Sox slunk off the field, shortstop Orlando Cabrera pulling his shirt out, as the Twins celebrated as if they won the division. Maybe that's exactly what they accomplished," the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
"That,'' Gardenhire said, "was the most intense series I've ever been a part of.''
* "While Twins players rolled around on the Metrodome diamond after an improbable 7-6 comeback Thursday, White Sox players took a slow walk to the visitors clubhouse trying to figure out how to rebound from such a catastrophe," writes the Star Tribune's La Velle E. Neal III, who grew up on the South Side as a Sox fan.
* "The Minnesota Twins ran circles around the wilting Chicago White Sox in a pivotal three-game sweep," AP reports.
* "Guillen botched this series in two ways: He psyched out his own starting pitcher, Javier Vazquez, before Game 1," Greg Couch writes in the Sun-Times. "And maybe more importantly, he allowed the team to come to Minnesota with exactly the wrong attitude, that they needed to win just one of three games to win the division."
"In both cases, the companies that hired the executive directors of the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority were major contributors to Blagojevich's campaign fund."
Revolving Door Tolling brought to you by Gov. Rod Blagojevich!
"Yet as Mr. McCain's misleading advertisements became fodder on shows like The View and Saturday Night Live, Mr. Obama began his own run of advertisements on radio and television that have matched the dubious nature of Mr. McCain's more questionable spots."
I don't care if you vote for Obama, especially considering the alternative - though Democrats holding both the executive and legislative branches of government usually ends in disaster - but don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.
Yes. If it's 1975.

I didn't have time to post much new content elsewhere on the site this morning, but don't forget to waste your day clicking around the Beachwood, because I'm sure you have nothing better to do. And as always, I'll make the occasional posts on Division Street through the weekend.
P.S.: It's not really over, Sox fans. How many times have we seen a situation like this where a team like the Twins drops a game or two to a team like the Royals? It happens. I hate to say it, but it does.
The Beachwood Tip Line: More than we can bear.
