McGair: Governors' Cup playoffs didn't agree with PawSox

September 11, 2011

If you blinked, chances are you missed out seeing the Pawtucket Red Sox in the 2011 Governors’ Cup playoffs. The three-game sweep administered by Lehigh Valley was that fleeting.
In a week’s time the PawSox went from mighty division champs to postseason wallflowers. One Saturday night, they’re basking in the glow of winning the I.L. North. The next Saturday sees the clubhouse resemble that of a funeral parlor, with players quietly exchanging farewell handshakes and hugs while gathering up their personal belongings for the trip back home.

He was too young to understand the full impact of what occurred that day and didn’t think too much about it as he grew up.
