I upgraded my Mac to High Sierra and now Postgres won't start. I'm thinking I need to uninstall/reinstall the database? Any other ideas?

In case you installed it through some package management tool, I’d give a try upgrading package/-s first

In case of macports:
1. sudo port selfupdate
2. sudo port upgrade outdated (alternatively can upgrade only postgresql)

In case of brew:
1. sudo brew update
2. sudo brew upgrade all (alternatively as with macports)
3. sudo brew link postgresql

Note: I am using macports and anytime do some os updates, afterwards always updating and upgrading port tree.
For what is worth, I didn’t have issue like yours.

In general: if you are not using package management tool, would recommend use one, simplifies and automates packages instalations and updates
