Best known as the minor-league franchise that briefly employed Darryl Strawberry last spring, the Saint Paul Saints are the subject of this 22-part documentary series. The program is as much about a city suffering from what one fan calls its inferiority complex as it is about the sport. Well done, but scheduling 22 weeks of something that might have been called Bull Durham: The Untold Story says a lot about cable TV’s desperation for interesting programming.
