World Series Champions 2010: San Francisco Giants [DVD]
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The axiom that good pitching and timely hitting will win you a World Series® title
has been around as long as the Fall Classic™. But few teams ever proved that theory better than the World Series Champions™, the San Francisco Giants. Riding the wave of an impossibly young and talented starting rotation, a lights-out closer and crucial hits from a self-proclaimed band of castoffs and misfits, the Giants silenced the powerful Texas Rangers in five games to capture their sixth World Series title and first since moving to the City by the Bay in 1958.
Languishing in fourth place the first week of July - just a game better than .500 - the Giants staged a great second-half run, winning the National League™ West Division
on the final day of the season before blowing past both the Atlanta Braves™ and the Philadelphia Phillies™ to reach the Fall Classic. Key in-season additions Cody Ross and Pat Burrell fueled the offense and nicely complemented seasoned vets like Juan Uribe, Aubrey Huff and World Series MVP Edgar Rentería. But there's no doubt that it was the Giants' pitching staff - guided by the deft hand of talented rookie catcher Buster Posey - that stole the show. Matt Cain did not allow a run in 21.1 brilliant innings of postseason play. Twenty-one-year-old Madison Bumgarner defied his age with a cold-as-ice performance to win Game 4 on the road. And two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum twice bested Cliff Lee, including a stellar performance in the clinching Game 5 showdown. With the unflappable Brian Wilson always there to close things out, the Giants' pitching staff held the powerful Texas offense to a meager .190 batting average.
The Giants are World Series Champions - San Francisco fans can say it loud and proud. And they are the proof in the pudding that good pitching and timely hitting will bring you a ring.

There is NO KNBR audio on the two games from the Philadelphia series, which I find to be a glaring omission.
I don't know about you, but I HATE the Fox announcers...especially Tim McCarver. So having KNBR's Kruk and Kuip (and Flem and Jon Miller) on the DVD set is a great bonus for me.
Unfortunately, the KNBR audio on the World Series games sounds somewhat "tinny," like they're talking into tin cans or a wastebasket. And there are a lot of silent moments where the audio does not match up to the game.
Overall, the Comcast Sports Net re-broadcasts of the playoff and World Series games--presented with the KNBR audio (and no silent moments)--are MUCH superior.
The DVD quality in the World Series 2010 set is good, but it is not close to the quality of the Blu-Ray (the beautiful, yet brief, MLB World Series recap Blu-Ray) or the HD re-broadcasts of the games on Comcast Sports Net (or even the lame edited versions on MLB Network).
But the 2010 World Series DVD set stands the test of time, and is still a must for any dedicated Giants fan. This DVD set is not a fickle DVR that may be swapped away someday or accidentally erased. And it's not a highlight film that shows parts of each World Series game without presenting the whole.
I just wish they had done a better job with this DVD set.
That's my review. GO GIANTS!!!
This DVD is a great mix of all the big moments on the field, behind the scenes footage like interviews and players discussing the excitement. There's even footage of Cody Ross walking through the city streets on his way to the park before game 1.

If you or a family member is a Giants fan you have to get this DVD. It's worth every penny!!
The ultimate baseball collectible, this 8-disc set features all of the complete World Series Games versus the Rangers, as well as the NLCS Games 4 & 6 versus the Phillies and a special bonus disc.
In addition to the full games presented on each World Series disc, pre-game and postgame interviews, and MLB Network coverage, and 4 audio channels (Fox Sports, Fox en Espanol, Flagship Radio Station Play-by-Play for BOTH teams) all enhance the viewer experience.
A special bonus disc features 60 minutes of regular and postseason highlights, player interviews, and celebratory footage.
Sadly the background music overpowered the narration and we could hardly follow the storyline. Hopefully others who have purchased the dvd are not having the same experience as my family. I would gladly replace my "bad disc" and buy another one with well balanced audio levels.
