PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – The Pittsburgh Pirates have made the postseason, but their stay could be a short one.

The NL Wild Card “series” is only one game, and a Tuesday loss to the Cincinnati Reds ends the Pirates’ season. While some are complaining that the Wild Card winners play in just one game, Troy Clardy thinks it’s the right way to go. He explains why on Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan.

“Pittsburgh fans, you should love the idea of a one-shot game,” Clardy says. “After all, this town applies a football mentality to everything anyway, where it all hinges on one game, and every game is so important that you get way too high after a win or just deep, down, dark low after a loss. Pittsburgh fans, I would think that you, more than anyone else, would love the idea of a one-shot game in the playoffs.”

Clardy outlines his reasons why having a Wild Card series involving multiple games would not be a good idea. Hear his entire thoughts below, and catch him weekends on Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan!
