This will likely be an unpopular review, but I must be honest. "Baseball: The Tenth Inning" does not hold a candle to the original series. While the "Top of the Tenth" is pretty good - "The Bottom of the Tenth" is essentially a retelling of the steroids controversy and the Yankee/Red Sox rivalry. I will admit that these are the two biggest stories between 1999-2009 but it certainly is not the only stories -

Things that were neglected

- Only 10 seconds devoted to the White Sox World Series victory in 2005 breaking their 88 year drought between championships.
- No mention of the Detroit Tigers - One of the most interesting stories of the decade was how the Tigers went from an 119 loss season in 2003 to a World Series appearance in 2006? The 2006 series between the Tigers/Cardinals was a rematch of the classic '68 Fall Classic - however, less than 5 seconds of the 2006 World Series is shown.
- Never mentions the rise of Tampa Bay as a powerhouse
- Excludes the Minnesota Twins.... and their stars Joe Mauer, Johnan Santana, or Justn Morneau. The Twins and Oakland A's of the 2000-2010 were the antithesis of the Yankees and Red Sox , and despite not winning a World Series they should be considered as two of the dominant teams.
- No mention of Miguel Cabrera, Carl Crawford, Paul Konerko, Trevor Hoffman, Jim Thome, any of the Twins, or really any player who was unfortunate enough not to play on one of the coasts.
- The only player interviewed is Pedro Martinez... which is a great choice... but why couldn't players be interviewed?
- Why not have a segment on the announcers of the period...

I have to say, I enjoyed the "Top of the 10th"...it definitely encapsulated 90's baseball and my brother and I kept turning to each other and saying "I remember that", but after watching the "Bottom of the 10th" I felt like the only things that have happened in baseball in the last decade are the Mitchell Report and the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry.

How about the Phillies in 2008? How about the White Sox breaking a DECADES long (longer than the Red Sox) drought to win the world series. How about Albert Pujols, arguably the best player of the past decade, who IS NOT EVEN MENTIONED? How about the Rockies winning 20 games in 21 days to go to the World Series in 2007? That is a damn good story, and there are plenty more from the past decade that were left out. I hate to break it to Ken Burns, but Baseball does happen outside of the Northeast...some darn good baseball actually.

I think this chapter focused too much on the negative, and not enough on the positive, for example Barry Bonds got easily 30 minutes of coverage, while Ken Griffey Jr, Cal Ripken Jr, and Ichiro Suzuki got maybe 2 minutes each.

If I were reviewing the "Bottom of the 10th" alone, giving it two stars would have been generous, but the "Top of the 10th" bumped up my ranking.

Ken Burns appends his 9 part PBS masterpiece. Unfortunately, the majesty that was 150 years of baseball spread over nine discs is lost in this microscopic close-up of 20 years spread over 4 hours. To make matters worse, the constant focus on the Red Sox and Yankees that was a quibble with the original film is full-on obnoxious in this episode. If you are a fan of the Yankees, or particularly the Red Sox, you'll probably love this film. For the rest of us it seems as long and drawn out as a game between these two same teams.

Congratulations, Ken Griffey Jr., You made the cover of The 10th Inning... and that's about it. The man who is arguably the greatest player of his era in light of the steroids scandal is talked about as much in a documentary covering the years 1992-2009 as Roberto Clemente, who died in 1972. In contrast, Barry Bonds hit 168 home runs from 2000-2002 and I'm reasonably sure Burns shows footage of every single one after spending 10 minutes talking about his childhood, college career, and early pro career in Pittsburgh.
John Chancellor passed away in 1996 and is replaced as narrator by Keith David, which by itself gives this chapter a different feel than previous ones and it might take another viewing to adjust to the change. One thing that didn't change was Burns' obsession with beating particular topics HE cares about to death. After spending 2 chapters respectively bludgeoning us with ridiculous stories of Babe Ruth hitting balls into orbit and Satchel Paige throwing pitches that broke the sound barrier, 3/4 of this 4 hour installment is spent on Bonds, McGwire/Sosa and the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry.
The only redeeming qualities of The Tenth Inning are the great coverage of the 2001 season in the wake of 9/11 and the interviews with Joe Torre, Pedro Martinez, Kieth Olbermann and a few others. Hopefully, Burns will make The 11th Inning worth waiting for, because this one fell short.

I will proudly go against the grain by declaring this the best inning for this reason: because almost all of the interview subjects are players, managers, executives and reporters who witnessed these events firsthand, we are finally almost free of the obnoxiously twee childhood reminiscences by academics that make me flip away whenever this comes on the Major League Baseball channel.

("almost": since I guess Burns was sleeping with Doris Kearns Goodwin while he was making these, we have to put up with her again, but only for about 90 seconds)

I am docking him one star for missing the opportunity to talk about the Black Sox Curse and Veeck Rhymes With Wreck along with the Curse of the Bambino and the Billy Goat Curse, but the rest of you need to stop bitching about 2003 and 2004. 2003 was the year of the double curse and 2004 was unprecedented so they both merit a generous discussion.
