The Red Sox rolled to seven consecutive postseason wins in 2007, each digitally preserved in this remarkable DVD collection. From Josh Beckett s dominance in ALCS Game 5, right through to the euphoric World Series Game 4--all of the hits, history, and happiness of the Red Sox 2007 World Series Championship are here.
These complete-game DVDs include enhanced audio tracks that allow you to choose which announcers to hear, including the Red Sox Radio Network crew. Your enjoyment is intensified with SleeveStats--official stats, trivia, and game summaries right on each DVD cover. With more than 20 hours of Red Sox October glory, this set will be a cherished part of your 2007 World Series collection.
Set contains complete ALCS Games 5, 6, and 7 versus the Cleveland Indians, and all four World Series games against the Colorado Rockies.
Bonus Material: Clubhouse Celebration; 2007 World Series Trophy and MVP Presentation; AL Eastern Division and ALDS Clinching Highlights; Manny Ramirez s ALDS Game 2 Walk-Off Home Run; Team Interviews; 2007 Highlights - Four consecutive home runs versus New York Yankees, Kevin Youkilis Inside-The-Park Homerun, Last Out Clay Buchholz s No-Hitter, David Ortiz Walk-Off Homerun
The format of the DVD collection will be familiar to many fans by now: the game-only Fox broadcasts, set up so you can jump to any half-inning you want, along with a bonus DVD of season highlights, postgame celebrations (yes, including the Papelbon Dance), and interviews, all packaged in info-rich sleeves full of stats and facts. And the best new feature of the year is a boon to anyone who'd prefer to relive the victories without having to invite Tim McCarver and Joe Buck back into their homes: for the World Series games you can choose to switch the audio track over to the Sox (or Colorado Rockies) radio broadcast. Nothing says New England baseball like the voice of Joe Castiglione, especially when he's announcing that Lenora Bevola of Sandwich is that night's contestant for the Mass State Lottery. --Tom Nissley

In 2004, they gave Sox fans a "complete" DVD set from the ALCS and World Series. But where was the ALDS? Most Sox fans probably would have paid extra for those three exciting games, had they been available. Once again, MLB has come up short with their "complete" DVD set: you get the anti-climactic 2007 World Series, but only the last three games of the ALCS. Why only a fraction of a series? Why only games 5-7? Just because, it would seem. Want to see Josh Beckett's dominating performance in Game 1 against Cleveland? Too bad, MLB didn't deem it worthy of inclusion.
This collection isn't bad, it's exactly what it advertises itself as. But it could have been so much better.
Why would a decision be made to exlude four games from the ALCS? Sure the price is $40 cheaper, but I would have paid $40 more to have all seven games.
This decision gives me the feeling that somebody who is not a fan of baseball made this decision, because any true fan of the sport would have prefered all seven games instead of just three.
So essentially I'll only see one game of Josh Beckett's outstanding/dominating performance in the ALCS. I'll miss the first Curt Schilling game. I'll also miss Dice-K and Wakefield's performance. Yeah, the last three lost their games (Schilling actually had a ND) but that's what makes an exciting series exciting.
I certainly HOPE somebody changes their mind and releases all SEVEN games. Otherwise...what's the point?!?!
I bet that MLB puts out a more complete set after the ring ceremony in 2008. They seem to be putting this one out now, quickly, to sell DVDs before Christmas. Be patient, hold off, and perhaps we'll see a superior set later on.
So I'll be holding off in the hope of seeing this. I waited long enough to see the Sox win the WS the first time in 2004...I can wait for a better 2007 WS box set!
And while the 2004 set lacked the 3 ALDS games against the Angels, at least it was produced in HD. This World Series set was rushed to market, so much so that it is not in HD or widescreen, which are practically automatic on all DVDs today.
So while I appreciate MLB's effort to get a product out in time for the holidays, I truly wish they had postponed the offer until such time the entire postseason series of games could be made available in 1 set - with all the viewing perks!
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.
