The Red Sox' major league club is in the midst of one of its more disappointing seasons in recent years, but things are looking up in the farm system.
The Pawtucket Red Sox finished off the Charlotte Knights on Thursday to claim their first International League championship since 1984. The PawSox' Governors' Cup victory came via a clean sweep, which was capped off by a 4-1 victory in Game 3.
Will Middlebrooks, Daniel Nava and Ryan Lavarnway — all of whom played for the PawSox at some point this season — were among those who were thrilled to hear about their former Triple-A teammates. They're particularly happy for PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler, who Middlebrooks said the team really pulled for this season.
