Today’s the day: The game’s count!

In celebration of the greatest day of the year, Let’s Go Tribe staff made their picks for the 2019 season, for the Indians and beyond.

The American League is predictable as ever, and most Let’s Go Tribe staffers seem to agree. On the other hand, the National League is the Wild West of baseball, and no one can seem to agree on anything about the Indians themselves, except that they’ll win the American League Central.
