MLB Buys

from the expanding... dept

Last week, just hours after the Super Bowl ended I received an email from Major League Baseball offering to sell me Superbowl-based merchandise, which seemed like an odd bit of cross-sports competition with the MLB folks trying to steal some thunder from the NFL. Considering's announced plans to provide online services for other sports leagues, it wasn't that surprising, though. However, today, it looks like is stepping up their efforts to be a part of a variety of different sports by buying ticket seller to have even more control over the process of selling tickets to all different kinds of sporting and entertainment events.
