Ken Burns's Baseball: Tenth Inning

I just finished watching Ken Burn's 10th Inning addendum to his spectacular 473 hour baseball documentary. I was thoroughly disappointed to see so little Cardinal representation beyond Big Mac's '98 season, and subsequent Congressional hearing. Although Burns is a master documentarian, and I really enjoyed the latest addition, I find it absolutely galling that he would make a film covering the last 15-20 years of baseball and not even mention Pujols once. In fact, outside of the aforementioned Big Mac Attack, there are only two clips of STL over the entire four hour chapter: the 2005 Lidge-buster, and the 2006 Inge-striker-outter-Yadi-jumping-upper. But even those passed without comment. It was 90% Boston / New York, 9% Bonds, 0.5% bloody sock, and another 0.5% Steve Bartman (God bless his soul).

Even with the appalling lack of Ridiculousness, I still highly recommend the entire series to any baseball fan with a library card or Netflix account. Anyone else watch it?
