All of the series' highlights are here, including the seven innings that Hamels pitched in game one, allowing only two runs. Game two is still painful to watch, even in retrospect, for Phillies' fans, as the Rays tie the series with the help of starting pitcher James Shields, who gives up no runs in five-and-a-half innings. As everyone knows, the Phillies sweep the next three games, struggling for a win in game three as the teams duke it out on offense. The drama of the 2008 World Series, of course, came with game five, when the Phillies and the Rays faced the same opponent: Philadelphia rain. It's great fun viewing again the protracted question of what to do with a field that was becoming laughable in its muddy, watery condition. The decision to suspend the contest at the bottom of the sixth inning still conveys its historic impact, i.e., the fact that no World Series game had ever been called off while in session. Add to that the excitement, two days later, of picking up where everything left off, both teams playing those final innings with great energy and competition, and you can't beat this box set. A special, bonus DVD includes a number of highlights from the entire series. --Tom Keogh
Great set of DVDs; with the use of sound bites from Phillies Broadcasters.
Not only can you review and replay the Wotld Series but also the NLCS and other highlights and interviews that you did not get a chance to see.
The collection consists of 6 DVD's which are worth watching over and over for the thrill of a lifetime Phillies fan like me.

It would have been nice to have seen any type of budget for the editing to fix thing such as cutting away in mid commentary or cutting out mid replay. Read morePublished 12 months ago by cope

they always have the nationally televised broadcast, which means you get the mediocrity of fox.
however, when i looked up this dvd on newvideo (one of the companies that is involved in the production/distribution of these mlb box sets), it lists as one of the special features: "Radio... Read More

I wish they'd included at least one game from the Rays' playoff run preceding the World Series. I realize some Phillies fans are uninterested in that (despite the context it would add to the Phils' achievement), but these sets really could/should be marketed to a broader audience of baseball fans...
