But when you know the facts about the 1991 World Series that both the Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves BOTH finished the previous year in last place, five of its games being decided by a single run, four games decided in the final at-bat and three games going into extra innings. Plus including Hall of Famers: John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, and Kirby Puckett. The Braves out scored the Twins 29-24 and out hit the Twins 63-56. But both teams were so evenly matched offensively and pitching wise and both teams took advantage of their home-field advantage winning all their home games.
I will buy this 1991 World Series on DVD as soon as it comes out, I've been waiting for MLB to make this one for so long.
This series was not as huge as '87 for either baseball or the community just for this reason. Eighty-seven was so improbable but the '91 Twins were truly a great ball club and played an all-time classic in Game 7. This is a darn good set and brought it all back to me.
However I think they were limited by copyright. MLB could not use stuff where CBS or whoever had the copyright. So no interviews or pre-game or post-game stuff. You start with the first pitch an end with the last out.
Also annoying is Tim McCarver. He must think he is the only person alive who knows anything about baseball and has made it his purpose to enlighten us. His vocal mannerisms are repellent to me, too loud, too abrasive and lectorial. After about Game 3 he finally winds down and shuts up I felt more relaxed. I love Jack Buck, his voice sounds like gravel rolling in a streambed and he's friendly, knowledgeable but not intrusive like that other guy.
So no features plus Tim McCarver equals 4 stars for the set but the Twins get 5 just for being what they were!
