If the Boston Red Sox are going to win their third World Series in a decade, they'll have to dethrone the defending American League champs the Detroit Tigers.

Behind Justin Verlander's dominant Game 5 performance, the Tigers knocked off the scrappy Oakland A's 3-0 Thursday night.

Detroit will now fly across the country for Game 1 of the ALCS Saturday night at Fenway Park. Lefty Jon Lester will likely face Anibal Sanchez

Boston was 3-4 against Detroit this season including a 20-4 Sox win the last time these two squared off.

What say you, Red Sox Lifer's?
