    I'm not sure if anyone else received this e-mail from mlb.com, but I got this earlier this morning and thought it was pretty neat. Not used to getting e-mails with nothing but an advertisement from a third party, literally all the e-mail contained was the picture I included in the attachment. Not sure if RIM has some kind of agreement in place with MLB but it looks like a possibility, I'm sure we'll see more of this in the near future!

    Good stuff, never got one myself though. Is there an optional web link?

    I mentioned in another thread that I too got the email, and it's a bit of a continuing frustration for me as I love the live streaming and continue extremely frustrated there is no way to do it on a BB phone (till BB10 I guess - the browser should do it - but I thought that about the PB as well).

    If you read the email there are a few clues that this doesn't mean what it might from the start. The address sending is a mailing list sold by MLB. There is no mention what so ever of cobranding with BB10 and MLB at all in the body of the text.

    Finally I asked them and I got the same answer I get every time I send an email to them:
