WENATCHEE — Last season, the Wenatchee AppleSox were clearly the best team in the West Coast League during the regular season. However, all of the records they set and their gaudy 39-15 record didn’t mean much in the first round of the WCL playoffs — Wenatchee dropped two games to Walla Walla and was swept out of the postseason. As such, AppleSox manager Ed Knaggs certainly knows that the league’s playoff system doesn’t always reward the league’s best team. He’s reasonably confident, however, that his squad — which put together the WCL’s best record once again this summer with a 37-17 mark — can play well in its first-round playoff series against Bellingham, which begins Saturday.
