5.0 out of 5 stars nice series for me to watch, April 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 1984 Detroit Tigers World Series Collectors Ed (DVD)
I have pretty much all the MLB's world series collections. This one is old school. The video is grainy, but it isn't overwrought with tinsely effects. The audio is better than what we've had the last few years, with Joe Buck's son. Good lively, discussion (whether listening to the TV or radio announcers).

I'm only on the third game, but I've watched these first three games a few times each, soaking them in. Game three is the clincher. Basically, the Padres can't bring anyone who can pitch. They're setting the record for walks. Sparky was saying the Tigers aren't hitting, but if the Padres don't pitch, it don't matter. Tigers are striking me as not very impressive. Padres just getting in their own way, without having a good pitcher. If they'd had Kevin McReynolds, they might have won. (Kinda like the Red Sox in '75 not having Jim Rice, their best hitter.)

Garvey has not been doing well, but Nettles continues to impress at the plate, from his glory days. He's the consummate pro. In fact, the Padres are basically a revamped Yankee team from the 70s! Bobby Brown, Goose.

My daughter loves the old Padres uniforms and so do I. And of course the Tigers' are classics. Tiger Stadium is great to watch, a real treat. The Tigers pitching is very good, excellent, and Chet Lemon in CF is very impressive on both sides of the ball.

So far, my impression is that both teams are inferior to other world series contenders, but it's still an incredible joyful series to watch. It's a unique, strange pairing too.

Can't wait to see how the series ends (again)! Saw it live in '84, but like these other series, a fresh view is a fresh perspective.

Btw, my favorite so far is `79 Bucs/Orioles. Best comeback.
