The Cleveland Indians are advancing to the ALCS! So we're going to talk about it. We're also going to talk about sweeping the Boston Red Sox and effectively ending the career of David Ortiz. You're welcome, America.

In an extensive preview of the ALCS against the Toronto Blue Jays, Jason and I take a look at the potential pitching matchups, as well as what the Indians need to do to advance to their first World Series in roughly 7,487 years. Maybe most importantly, we try and get to the bottom of why Jose Ramirez has Let's Go Tribe blocked on Twitter. I think it's something Jason said, and Jason is wrong.

We also answer your questions, of course! Nancy Holz on Facebook wants to compare Francisco Lindor's first two seasons to those of Omar Viquel, Chris Pulliam on Facebook  wants to know what World Series opponent the Tribe matchup best against, @DHaines1 wants to know our potential breakout performer in the ALCS, @randomanne wants to know if Cleveland fans will drown out the Blue Jay faithful at Progressive Field, @metromash wants to know how many home runs each team will hit, and Matt McFee on Facebook wants to know what Jonathan Lucroy's favorite offseason activities are.
