Nate and I discuss the week for the Cincinnati Reds and decide that Pittsburgh is the armpit of America. I mean, seriously. Screw those guys.

We also discussed the new rule changes announced by MLB, Nick Lodolo’s ascension to “ace” status, the return of RedsFest…and, in honor of episode #444, we announce the best player in Reds history ever to wear uniform number 44. Also, Pittsburgh is the worst.

    Agree with your assesment of Pittsburgh Chad! Been to St. Louis, not much better! Can’t wait to buy and read your book!

    I agree with your view of Pittsburgh’s pro sports teams, but not of the City. Pittsburgh, years ago, was called the Smoky city but that’s no longer the case. I’d call it one of the nicer middle-sized cities in America along with Cincinnati.

      I agree with TR.
      My visits to post industrial Pittsburgh have been very enjoyable. Cool neighborhoods, great restaurants, interesting museums and galleries. “Strip District” (I think it’s called) along one of the rivers is very fun. Don’t know what the author’s beef is.

    Don’t take out your frustrations with the Reds self inflicted disaster on the city of Pittsburg.
