CLEVELAND, Ohio — The 2018 postseason has arrived like a warm hug from Javier Baez on a fielder’s choice grounder to Nolan Arenado.
Cleveland and Houston, the last two American League champions are set to square off in the divisional round and there are plenty of storylines to follow.
The Astros seek to defend their crown while the Indians seek redemption for a 2017 playoff run cut short by the New York Yankees.
On this week’s podcast, cleveland.com’s Paul Hoynes and Joe Noga take a look at Indians manager Terry Francona’s roster decisions and how things could play out in the first two games of the series at Minute Maid Park.
Paul and Joe also take reader questions about free agency, bullpen strategy and (a lack of) Bieber fever.
In the end, you’ll get our predictions for which team we think will come out on top in the ALDS, and how many games it will take.
