Podcast: Pittsburgh Pirates Going Through Ups And Downs; Steelers Host Bills

City of Champions co-editors Matt Gajtka, Larry Snyder and Zac Weiss join forces for the latest episode of Three Rivers…One Show, the flagship program on City of Champions Radio.

The up-and-down Pittsburgh Pirates are the primary topic again this week, as they attempt to stay in playoff contention despite missing key players due to injury.

What is a reasonable expectation for this team as they continue a difficult stretch in their schedule? How should we assess their performance without Andrew McCutchen, Neil Walker and Gerrit Cole?

Also, the Steelers prepare for their first home preseason game this weekend against the Bills. Can LeGarrette Blount be what the team hopes he can be – a good counterpunch to Le’Veon Bell in the Pittsburgh backfield?

Finally, the guys relate their Final Thoughts on the week in sports, both local and elsewhere.
