If the opening rounds of the AL playoffs were billed as David vs. Goliath matchups in terms of payroll, this American League Championship Series is a battle of the titans.

The Yankees sport, shockingly, the top payroll in baseball. The Tigers checked in at fifth overall this season after stunning the baseball world in inking Prince Fielder this past winter.

And here we are. Another Tigers vs. Yankees postseason matchup. The Tigers took the Yankees down last October, just as they did in 2006.

Third time’s a charm for the Yankees, or will the Tigers soon be able to say they own the Yankees in October? We’ll find out in roughly a week. What I do know is it’s looking like a classic series.
