I first saw this World Series on TV and was amazed at the overall outcome of the whole thing (and this is coming from someone who doesn't consider herself a die-hard Red Sox fan!). Although I'm a Yankees fan, I had plans to buy this DVD set for reasons I won't disclose to anybody.
Unfortunately, it seems apparent once again that MLB and A&E haven't done their job properly. That is, they don't bundle the entire respective LCS with the actual World Series itself. They did that with almost every World Series DVD of this type. This DVD release doesn't even include the first four games of the 2007 ALCS, which is a big letdown for you fellow BoSox fans and prospective buyers. I particularly liked Josh Beckett's performance in Game 1, in which he struck out 9, and there's no sign of it on here.
Hey, I know A&E Video was releasing this in an attempt to make it a 'Christmas Pick' or something like that, but it would have been better to wait a while and gather all the resources, so to speak.
I guess I'll just have to wait and see if this DVD set gets an expanded re-release in the future, which I very much doubt they ever will.
To any of you at MLB or A&E Video: If you're reading this, you probably want to consider posting a vote on your site that allows us to choose what WE want to see on the next World Series Collector's Edition DVD. 'What would you like to see on fill-in-the-blank World Series DVD?'
Sorry, ladies and gentlemen, but if I were a Major League Umpire, I'd call both MLB *AND* A&E out for failing to hit even a single with treatment of this DVD set - forget solo, 2-run, and 3-run home runs or even grand slams.
