Pittsburgh Pirates Playoff Podcast and Champagne Celebrations

The most alliterative title in podcast history is in honor of the Pittsburgh Pirates going to the playoffs for the second consecutive season!

Super Producer turned Super Dad Jason Ruggiero returns to the podcast this week in between diapers to talk baseball with Andy Burdick! The duo open the pod by discussing Frank Wren and the Atlanta Braves situation.  They then transition to playoff baseball in Pittsburgh by looking at the last five games of the season and the Pirates playoff projections.  Andy talks about Gerrit Cole's ace status, champagne celebrations in the clubhouse and the difficulty of pronouncing 'Incmikoski', and an in-depth discussion of the team MVP.  Jason then gets his feet wet discussing the pluses and minuses of the Indians offense, Carlos Santana's on base percentage, Corey Kluber's amazing season, and the future of Cleveland's middle infield.  The duo wrap up the show with a Tweetmail, rehashing an old topic from an old friend.

The NLDS Is Out There

This week Andy and Jason attempt to avoid a topical discussion only to get embroiled in a topical discussion about Mat Latos' wife. Andy talks entirely too long about people's perceptions of Jeff Locke, whilst peppering in commentary about the horrendous start to the NLDS. Jason tries to start on a positive note, reflecting on the Indians accomplishments this year but quickly succumbs to ragging on Asdrubal Cabrera. Things wrap up with another "Next Level" conspiracy from Jason regarding Jason Kipnis.

Also, a big TSM congratulations to our co-founder, The Ginger Prince, and his hazel-haired maiden.
