The Pirates are heading into a huge series with the Reds that will determine home field for the wild card game. It's pretty simple: whoever wins two of three gets home field.
I spent the first half of the season about two hours outside of Cincinnati. I like Reds fans, and sincerely enjoyed watching the team the last few seasons. And my experience at Redsfest was great this winter.
But with that said...I think the Bucs are well overdue in the karma department here.
