Embedding MLB.com Video

  1. I've been trying to embed a video from MLB.com into a blog post, and it just keeps converting the embed code to a link.

    The video is here:
    http://mlb.mlb.com//shared/flash/video/share/ObjectEmbedFrame.swf?width=400&height=254&content_id=21468797&property=mlb

    And the embed code is
    <object width="400" height="254"><param name="movie" value="http://mlb.mlb.com//shared/flash/video/share/ObjectEmbedFrame.swf?width=400&height=254&content_id=21468797&property=mlb" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="scale" value="noscale" /><param name="salign" value="tl" /><embed src="http://mlb.mlb.com//shared/flash/video/share/ObjectEmbedFrame.swf?width=400&height=254&content_id=21468797&property=mlb" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" window="transparent" width="400" height="254" scale="noscale" salign ="tl" /> </object>

    I edit the code for the entry using the HTML editor, but when I hit "preview" or "publish" it automatically converts it to this code instead:

    <br /> <a href="http://mlb.mlb.com//shared/flash/video/share/ObjectEmbedFrame.swf?width=400&height=254&content_id=21468797&property=mlb">http://mlb.mlb.com//shared/flash/video/share/ObjectEmbedFrame.swf?width=400&height=254&content_id=21468797&property=mlb</a><br />

    How can I make the code I want stick?

    The blog I need help with is humpbackliner.com.
