The [Monday] Papers

The Papers will return on Tuesday, as will the rest of the Beachwood.

But for those who need their Cubs fix . . .

* "And they all stood and applauded," our very own Jim Coffman writes in SportsMonday. "Alfonso Soriano had homered, doubled and then homered again, giving him four home runs in three days as he almost single-handedly led the Cubs to three straight wins over the Diamondbacks. As he strode to the plate for his fourth at-bat of the day Sunday, the Cub fans all jumped to their feet and gave him an extended ovation. And wasn't that nice - slightly disconcerting, but nice."

* Jaramillo's Job Safe - For Now.

* A Chad Tracy Sighting!

* Concession Review No. 2: The High Plains Bison Hot Dog.

* "An overlooked benefit of Carlos Zambrano's assignment to the bullpen? The Cubs are wearing their hideous alternate blue softball jerseys a lot less," notes our very own Chris Rewers.


The Weekend Desk Report
Don your goofiest hat and pull up a couple of mint juleps, it's time to watch exploited workers labor in intolerable conditions!

Special Kentucky Derby Edition
With the biggest name definitively ruled out of the proceedings, it's kind of hard to pick a front runner. Here's how we handicap the best of the rest.

Slowest Start
There's no way he start as sloppily as his cousin, American Tiger, but we're thinking the pressure might finally tell on American Lion.

Fastest Start
Hard to argue against the early form of Sidney's Candy.

Although both are certainly capable of sneaky rail maneuvers and deceptive running, it's a safe bet time will catch up with both Discreetly Mine and Super Saver.

Best Chance of Recovery
On paper, you might think Looking at Lucky has a shot. Trust us, though, Backtalk looks almost as strong as his cousin Backtrack.

Our Pick
With early favorite Awesome Act already showing a tendency to flinch, we think it's inevitable that Ice Box joins his stable mates in, well, the Ice Box.
