Let’s Talk Tribe is BACK! (Again!) There is a lot to talk about, including opening World Series wounds. Outside of moping about arguably the most heartbreaking game in Indians history, Jason and I discuss the Indians’ offseason moves to this point, what could come, and what Indians fans should expect. Spoiler alert: The offseason will probably be boring, but that’s okay.

Another thing worth talking about is how potentially bad the AL Central could be this season. The White Sox are a mess, the Tigers are likely rebuilding, the Royals are in a transition, and the Twins are... well... the Twins.

We also take your social media questions! Marc Shefelton on Facebook wants to know what a hardcore Indians fan should do to pass time in the offseason, Matt McFee on Facebook wants to know if the Indians should convert Yan Gomes to a first basemen, @MattSchlichting wants to know if Vin Scully could be our next Pope, @alisonvermilya wants to know if we would have pinch-hit Josh Tomlin for Michael Martinez in game seven (too soon, Alison, too soon), @pablothegreek wants to know what Brandon Guyer’s role will be next season, and @welchy3319 wants to know if the Indians should try and trade for Chris Sale.

Most importantly, Jason had some big news: He’s going to be a dad! He’s one those people who wait to know the gender until the baby is born, but still — congrats, Jason! Hopefully your future child gets a World Series win as a first birthday present.

We mention it in the podcast, but as a special reminder we will be broadcasting our recording session live on Facebook next week. Join us on the Let’s Go Tribe Facebook page Monday around 9:15 p.m. ET to either witness a wonderful convergence of several recording technologies — or a total disaster. Could be either one, honestly.
