MLB NetworkBelieve it or not, live baseball will be coming to television today as the Caribbean World Series gets underway. Twelve games can be seen on MLB Network, the first live games to be broadcast on the fledgling all-baseball channel. The games, being played in Mexicali, Mexico, run from today (Feb2) through Feb. 7th.  

Gary Fraley of The Sporting News has several key storylines to watch in the CWS, including free agent Ivan Rodriguez, who is batting 3rd and catching for Ponce (Puerto Rico). Another story is rigthhander Javier Vazquez who went 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA for 12 innings during two starts for Ponce in the championship round. Vazquez was recently acquired by the Braves.

Below is the entire broadcast schedule, along with announcers for the Caribbean World Series on MLB Network.
