American League Wild Card Game Thread: Rays @ Indians

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Figure out which team you hate more and half-heartedly root for their opponent!

About a year ago, the Orioles played in the American League Wild Card Game. This year, we find ourselves on the outside looking in, with two unlikely cities that happen to be division rivals for Baltimore's NFL team hosting games in this round. Pittsburgh showed its quality last night and now it will be Cleveland tonight.

Do you hate the Indians more, or the Rays? There is very little to hate about the Indians, if you ask me, and meanwhile the Rays are loaded up with detestable characters, so that's not much of a choice. Plus, it'd be something for the beleaguered Cleveland fanbase to get to experience a victory in this one-game playoff.

I wish there was postseason in Baltimore again this year.
