The Cleveland Indians will open their season with a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox today. To kick off the series, they will send out their own ace, Corey Kluber, against the Sox's $217 million pitcher, David Price. Weather permitting, this should be a great pitching duel on both sides.

Today's Lineups

The Tribe comes into this season with two of its biggest stars (well, one and a half of its biggest stars, maybe) on the disabled list. Outfielder Michael Brantley will be out for at least a couple weeks while he recovers from torn labrum surgery in November, and outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall will be out until at least April 12 with a sore forearm. The outfield for the first few weeks of the season will be a jumbled mess, but a solid infield and top-flight pitching staff should hopefully carry them. Hopefully.

If you are not at the game in sub-40 degree weather freezing your limbs off, sit back and enjoy some Tribe baseball in the warmth of your own home. Baseball is back, everyone!
