It's going to be Red Sox vs. the Tigers in the American League Championship Series, and the shift in round also means a change in which network you'll have to turn to for your playoff needs. TBS is no longer responsible for carrying any of the AL games, so steel yourself for listening to FOX announcers from here on out.

The italicized games, of course, are if they are even necessary. Given how closely matched up these two clubs are, all three of the semi-scheduled contests very well could be needed to figure out who will be advancing to their third World Series in the last 10 years. Yes, that does indeed mean the Tigers or Red Sox will have represented the American League in exactly half of the last 10 World Series -- this kind of shared success is no surprise, though, historically.
