The Cleveland Indians are ready to begin the 2018 postseason. Be sure to comment on this post to chat with other fans throughout the game.

I’m ready to run through a wall. Are you?

The Cleveland Indians are in Houston and the postseason is finally here.

Let’s take a look at the lineup the Indians will trot out against Justin Verlander.

That’s about as strong a lineup as you’ll see anywhere this month. It still is wild that Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson are both on the Indians.

The game is in the afternoon and that means some fans may be watching at work or school. We want readers to use this post as a way to chat with other fans throughout the game.

Just scroll to the bottom of the post to the comments section and get the conversation going. Hopefully the chat starts off after a big first inning from the Indians offense.

This is always a nervous time for fans. One game doesn’t decide a series and fans saw that even a 2-0 lead isn’t safe after what happened last year. But still, no one wants to start the series off with a loss. It just leaves a bad taste.

Enough doom and gloom for now. Check out all our ALDS-related pieces while you are here and shoot us a tweet if you need to vent during the game. Or celebrate.

The wait is over and it is time to go. My prediction is a 6-1 Indians victory. How do you see the game playing out?
