Baseball goes live - in Europe

The U.S.'s MLB (Major League Baseball) is now streaming two games a day to Europe and other markets.  Just not to the games biggest fan markets (US, Canada, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan).
  The games are available through MLB's YouTube channel, which will also have highlight clips from in-season games two days after they're played and a large archive of "Baseball's Best Moments."  MLB's been streaming games live for a while now, but only as part of MLB TV's premium package (available in US for around $130/yr) - the move is part of their effort to expand the sport's fan base into new markets.
