"At some point, baseball is going to have to address the Ohio Problem. The Reds, Indians, and Pirates have incredible baseball legacies, but if you were building a baseball league today you would never put teams in all three of those cities. There just aren’t enough people. Some huge part of baseball’s issues is trying to keep teams in places that were metropolises 120 years ago, and have them compete with teams in places that are metropolises now."
