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.

Just let that marinate for a second.

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.”

To that end, why pray tell is this best-of-five first-round series starting at Frontier Field as opposed to McCoy Stadium?
Good question, and below is the actual answer.

Woonsocket bridge needs repairs

September 3, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Just in time for the school year, the discovery of structural problems with the Hamlet Avenue Bridge prompted state transportation officials to close off two of the span’s four lanes Tuesday morning – for the foreseeable future.
Public Works Director Sheila McGauvran said the problem is associated with the failure of an expansion grate at the eastbound approach to the bridge, which crosses the Blackstone River.
The problem was discovered by Highway Supt. Rick Lambert, according to McGauvran. The state Department of Transportation later dispatched inspectors to take a look.
