To begin today’s podcast, I talked about the glorious return of Devin Mesoraco, then went on a little rant about Brandon Phillips and his comments upon returning to Cincinnati for the first time. In addition, I was joined by Tom Van Riper, author of Cincinnati Red and Dodger Blue, a new book that looks at the Reds-Dodgers rivalry of the 1970s and 80s.
Tom will be signing his book at the Barnes and Noble in Newport, KY on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at noon; he’ll also be at the Waterstone B&N at 3pm that day. Go meet Tom and tell him Redleg Nation sent you.
Music for this episode provided by Freekbass, a big Reds fan and a friend of Redleg Nation.
