There's nothing worse than having to work late on a Friday night. Unless it's working late on a Friday night, and coming home to discover that Brad Radke only lasted two innings into the Twins-White Sox game. Or realizing that you've missed Nick Punto's first home run of the year, as well as Torii's 20th.
But in the Biggest Series of the Year (Until the Next One), there's plenty of excitement to be had, even if you can only catch the last three innings of a game -- especially when there's a tie that doesn't get broken until the 9th inning on a Bartlett RBI. Or when Joe Nathan decides to treat us to a heart attack of a save. A win that ends on a fan interference call is still a win, though, and the Twins now lead the Wild Card race by a whopping ½ game. And it's the weekend, so I won't even have to work through the rest of the series!
