McGair: A little tweaking to International League's playoff format would go a long way

September 3, 2013

The Pawtucket Red Sox – correction, the 2013 Eastern Division champion Pawtucket Red Sox – will begin the Governors’ Cup playoffs Wednesday night on the road against wild-card entry Rochester.

The PawSox captured the division flag with the Red Wings ending up 3.5 games off the pace. To borrow from A Few Good Men, “These are the facts of the case. And they are undisputed.”

Good question, and below is the actual answer.
