It's not getting old yet, is it? Boston Red Sox fans who bought every shard of memorabilia from the magical season of 2004 could be forgiven for budgeting for the 2007 postseason with a more seasoned eye, but the basic keepsake remains: this official DVD boxed set including every pitch of the World Series against the Colorado Rockies as well as the three final ALCS wins against the Indians (combined score: 40-5). Many fans will wish the first four Indians games were included as well: the pleasure of a win is only increased by watching the struggle it took to get there. But the big moments are here: Josh Beckett's door-slamming performances in game 5 of the ALCS and game 1 of the Series, J.D. Drew's $14 Million Grand Slam, the endless rookie heroics, Jon Lester's shutout innings to sweep the Series, and Mike Lowell's MVP performance.
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
