It's not likely the Reds would play the Braves in the NLDS.

Cincy is a nice town. Atlanta is a major city.

The Census may not have caught up to realities.

It's exactly as far from Cincy to Dayton as it is from Kennesaw to Hampton.

Cincy folk make use of the Dayton airport.

There's solid development between the two cities.

In defense to the Cincy-Dayton connection, I agree they do seem pretty connected, but honestly I hate all of this uber-urbananized area crap and what not and feel that cities should not really merge if they are otherwise independent. Cincy-Dayton COULD be an exception, but I still say "no" until Dayton relies at least 50% on Cincy.

Cinci and Dayton are the same distance as Philly and NYC at about 45 miles, that seems pretty far to add them; Are they in the same MSA or CSA?

Distance Calculator - Cities Near U.S.A. – Ohio – Dayton


Philadelphia (pronounced /ˌfɪləˈdɛlfiə/) is the largest city in Pennsylvania, sixth-most-populous city in the United States and the fifty-first most populous city in the world.[3]
In 2008, the population of the city proper was estimated to be more than 1.54 million,[4] while the Greater Philadelphia metropolitan area's population of 5.8 million made it the country's fifth largest. The city, which lies about 45 miles (72 km) southwest of New York City,[5] is the nation's fourth-largest urban area by population and its fourth-largest consumer media market, as ranked by the Nielsen Media Research.

Kidphilly loves to exaggerate about his city.

Get used to it.

Since when is Philly 45 miles from NYC?! LOL ... According to Rand-McNally it's 97. Cities are measured from center-to-center not suburban fringe-to-fringe. Hey! Did you hear? Atlanta is only 25 miles from Chattanooga and Macon -- the Chat-A-Mac Corridor!
