Would MLB go out of business if they let us embed video about Mets helping kids?

SS

The past few days I've brought up that the Mets do a lousy job of communicating when they do nice things, like having kids out to Citi Field.










This morning the Mets emailed the database about it.  Smart move considering how awful yesterday went for the franchise.

I'd like to easily tell you about it, but MLB or MLB.com or whoever has decided that their business would be unsustainable if they allowed dopey blogs to embed video.   I understand the desire for webhits, I even understand the annoying thirty second ad you make us sit through before we get to learn about your deeds...but if you let me easily share it you'd get your word out better, and more people would see the ad.  This is community service, not some rare triple play or a guy on steroids hitting his 74th home run.

Here's the link if you want to sit through the ad.

Note the "kids" logo on the t-shirt has the dreaded underline "swoosh."  That's interesting to me.

Back on Beltran after I take care of some other stuff.

You expect MLB to let you embed video? You obviously haven't read this: http://consumerist.com/2009/09/mlb-wont-give-me-permission-to-describe-game-to-friend.html
