Example
I have two DVDs - 1975 World Series Game 6 and 2004 ALCS Game 4, part of A&E's new "Baseball's Greatest Games" series - to give away.

ALCS: Rangers / Tigers
NLCS: Brewers / Cardinals

Pick both pennant winners and the length of each series (e.g., Tigers in 6, Brewers in 7). Email your guesses to me at joyofsox@gmail.com before the first pitch of ALCS 1 on Saturday night. The person with the most accurate entry can choose one of the two DVDs.

We will have a similar contest for the World Series for the remaining DVD.
Other games in the A&E series:
1960 World Series Game 7 - Pirates 10, Yankees 9
1975 World Series Game 6 - Red Sox 7, Reds 6 (12)
1979 Wrigley Field Slugfest - May 17: Phillies 23, Cubs 22 (10)
1985 NLCS Game 5 - Cardinals 3, Dodgers 2
1986 World Series Game 6 - Mets 6, Red Sox 5 (10)
1991 World Series Game 7 - Twins 1, Atlanta 0 (10)
1992 NLCS Game 7 - Atlanta 3, Pirates 2
1993 World Series Game 6 - Blue Jays 8, Phillies 6
2003 ALCS Game 7 - Yankees 6, Red Sox 5 (11)
2004 ALCS Game 4 - Red Sox 6, Yankees 4 (12)
I'm curious about the 23-22 game, but I really want to see Game 7 of the 1960 World Series. Only a 40-second clip was thought to survive, but about a year ago, it was reported that a complete recording of the game had been discovered in Bing Crosby's wine cellar.

One neat thing about these DVDs - and the non-Sox ones too, I assume - is that you can choose the radio broadcast over the TV

Hmmm: Many of the entries are very similar - and I have two sets of identical entries. This could be "interesting" to sort out - but I do have two prizes.

And Tim and Kathryn -- as the only 2 entrants to guess both TEX and STL -- are the winners!

Kathryn:
NL: STL 6 (correct)
AL: TEX 5 (1 game off)

Tim:
NL: STL 7 (1 game off)
AL: TEX 6 (correct)
