All MLB games condensed to 15 minutes, streamed online for free

It has come to my attention that many baseball fans don't know about this. At MLB.com, on the Video tab, click "Watch/Listen". There, you'll find each and every game, edited to show only the last pitch of each at-bat. You can watch a whole game in 10-20 minutes.

Sure, there's no commentary, but at least there's rewind. And they'll cut whole half-innings where nothing happens, but at least they'll show you slow-motion replays on the close plays.

For those that knew this, do you like it or hate it? What would you change? For those that didn't know about this...you're welcome.

I love the condensed games. They're a great way to "watch" games you otherwise might not care so much about, or just catch up on a game you do care about that you missed.

I do wish they'd show every out, though, rather than just the Ks and "exciting" plays. I like watching the defense at work - even a quick, 3 second clip showing the ground ball and throw to first would be fine by me.

They seem to be getting worse about that. When they first started it, they did show every out, no matter how it happened. Then they started showing replays, then the same replay over and over. Last night, I watched the same strikeout from 4 different angle...but it wasn't even remarkable! No one was on base, there were already two outs, and the batter was a "who?". But they spent 20 seconds showing the same swing-and-miss when they could have included a few more ground ball outs. I don't know what their problem is over there.
