Since the Seattle Mariners' first pitch on April 6, 1977, the Emerald City has witnessed the "M's" evolve from scrappy expansion franchise to establishing record-setting win totals. The bond between players and Pacific Northwest is apparent in an all-time roster so familiar, it's on a first-name basis: Edgar, Alvin, Junior, Ichiro, Randy, Jamie, Jay, and Lou.

Just as with the Mariners team of 2010, I had high hopes but was ultimately disappointed with this DVD set. The four games presented in this set sounded promising, mostly. The first two selections were no-doubters: the one-game playoff against the Angels in 1995, and the ALDS Game 5 vs. the Yankees in '95. The third one- Game 3 of the 2000 ALDS against the White Sox- is a great choice, a real nail-biter of a game. The last pick, however, is less than inspired: the division clincher from 2001. This is a terrible choice for many reasons, and as a result, it sullies the rest of the set. First, it's a downer. Just the second game after the 9/11 attacks, the Mariners' winning the division crown was anti-climatic, and the announcers are somewhat downbeat. The only truly interesting thing about the game--the post-game prayer at the mound accompanied by the hoisting of the American flag--is cut from the DVD. Also, the resolution of the broadcast is shoddy at best. The default audio...
Sigh... The Seattle Mariners, just thinking about them makes me smile. As I write this review they're 26-41 with no chance of getting to the post-season, but I just LOVE the Mariners. I was born in 1995 so I don't remember the fantastic season they had that year. But I do remember the 2001 season. And if your a Mariners fan this collection is a must have.
The first game on this collection is the 1995 AL West One-Game Playoff when the Seattle Mariners played the California Angels at the Kingdome. The Mariners were tied with the Angels with the record 78 -66 causing a one game tie-breaker.
The second game is the 1995 AL Division Series Game 5 Winner. The Mariners faced the New York Yankees in a thrilling 11 inning game. In my opinion, these first two games are perfect selections for this DVD set; they highlighted this incredible Mariners team at their highest point.
The third game features the 2000 AL Division Game 3 Series Winner against the Chicago...
If you're a Seattle sports fan, there isn't much to celebrate in the past couple of years but this DVD will at least put a smile on your face.
Games included are the 1995 AL West One Game Playoff vs Angels, 1995 ALDS Game 5 vs. Yankees, 2000 ALDS Game Three, and 2001 AL West Division clincher.
There is a debate along the lines of why the 2001 AL West clincher is in there. As noted in a previous review, the audio is somewhat muddled and the picture is pixelated (mainly from what I figured is video conversion from the early 2000's) but improves during the game.
I figured the inclusion of this game is mainly due to the 9/11 attacks and the Mariners clinching the AL West. Sure, they could have gone with the season opener or the 116th win but I see the issues they probably saw when choosing the game from this season. The season opener was an outstanding game but doesn't make sense for a opening season game that celebrates 116 wins and the 116th win was a...
