I was just searching around on Amazon.com and found this:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CRR392/qid=1134694533/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/104-4913657-3049546?s=dvd&v=glance&n=130

Unfortunately, it doesn't give information on the actual content of the DVD, but it does show the MSRP($89.95), Amazon's price($62.99), and the release date(March 28, 2006). I think the Red Sox DVD set was more expensive, so this set might only contain the four world series games. Just a guess though...

The Yankees have a 7 disc set with a MSRP of $79.95 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009PLM6M/qid=1134695847/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/002-8597762-5428862?s=dvd&v=glance&n=130), the Red Sox had a 12 disc set with a MSRP of $129.95 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009IXRLW/qid=1134695836/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/002-8597762-5428862?s=dvd&v=glance&n=130), so based on that it would seem like our set is probably 8 discs. Remember that the Red Sox had 3 more ALCS games than we did, so it's possible it'll include the ALCS too (although I don't know if they could fit World Series game 3 on one disc).

Hopefully(and most likely), you're right. $89.95 would be a hefty price for only 4 games on DVD, but the price is perfect for the ALCS and WS. As for fitting game 3 of the World Series on one disk, that could be quite the problem. I remember reading that with the 2004 Red Sox collection, A&E decided what was "important" from the longer games and then highly compressed the innings where nothing notable happened, so there was a noticeable change of video quality DURING the game.

They can fit game 3 on one dvd trust me it is possible. Nonetheless sounds like an investment i will be making no matter what. Im just waiting for more info on it.

That seems ridiculous. A DVD can hold a lot of video. The total time of game 3 was 5:41, according to MLB.com . Also take into account the time allowed for commercial breaks between innings. If I'm not mistaken, the commercial breaks are 90 seconds. A break after every half inning would be 27 breaks, which is 40.5 minutes of commercials eliminated. Obviously, if the breaks are longer than 90 seconds, more time will be cut out. I don't think it would be all that difficult to fit 5 hours onto a DVD.

I could only fit about 2:45 onto a single DVD. If you go with a double-layer DVD, then it is 5:30, but not all players can read dual-layer DVDs. If you reduce the video quality, you can go longer, but then why have it on DVD if the quality is VHS? I split Game 3 into two...

I'm pretty sure all Players can read double layer DVDs.

On the Red Sox set you notice the video is lower quality in the earlier innings on Games 4 and 5 of the ALCS that both went into extra innings.

The one thing I hated was that for some reason MLB didn't use a master tape from Fox and all during the game you have a bug for FOX5 in New York down in the lower right.

They obviously taped the games at MLB productions in Connecticut.

That was my understanding as well. The problem is that dual-layer burners and blank DVDs are crazy-expensive when compared to single layer technology (i.e. $10 discs vs. $0.50 discs). In any event, I'm not worried about quality, even for Game 3. Plenty of space on dual-layer to maintain high quality.

All players can read double layer DVDs. A majority of the DVDs out there (all the ones with a lot of bonus material) are on double layer DVDs. Just not all DVD burners can copy one.

It's possible it's on two discs, but I doubt it.

so these DVDs contain all of the action - not just highlights and all of that? Good.

Will the Bosox and Angels series ever come out on DVD?

Tragg - No one knows if the ALDS or ALCS will be included, but by judging on the price tag, we can compare it to the Yankees DVD box and Red Sox DVD box. Going that route, we think the ALCS may be included.

I am interested in after game video's of each round. I hope this has more coverage than the previous dvds had. Local TV ran for at least an hour after game, and I ran out of tape and missed a lot of it!

I called a friend of mine at MLB Productions in Stamford, CT


The ALCS games will be included. He advises that the ALDS games can be downloaded for a fee from MLB.com
He confirmed what I suspected. The DVD's are made from files on the video server in Connecticut which is why the FOX5 New York bug appears on the screen.
Because of the length of certain games, different compression is used to insure that the entire game can be on one disc.MLB Productions produces ALL post season videos instead of the local broadcasters.

Great stuff! Now all I have to buy is 3 VHS tapes for the ALCS showing this weekend~
