THE JACKSONVILLE SUNS TAKE ON THE PENSACOLA BLUE WAHOOS

So you’d think that, like in Major League Baseball, the formula for making the minor-league playoffs would be pretty straightforward: If you win enough games to claim your division or a wild card slot, you’re in. Alas – at least for the casual fan – it ain’t so. The division winners of the first half of the season play the winners of the second half of the season in a five-game series to see who moves on to the next round, which, confusing though it may be, means our own Jacksonville Suns, despite a mediocre first half, are still in it. As of this writing, they’re tied for first in the second-half standings with the Mobile BayBears. And starting Sunday, they head into the homestretch with a five-game stand against the lowly Pensacola Blue Wahoos.
