How do I mirror a MLB web page?

I'd like to use wget to make a local copy of a web page at mlb.com (specifically this one) but all my attempts have resulted in an incomplete page. What arguments should I be giving wget to make it work?

Maybe you want to use HTTrack instead?

My beau says that he has always had good luck using -m (for mirror) as the sole flag. He further says that it gets "wonky" when trying to mirror flash driven sites but is good with straight html and php driven sites.

curl is another useful tool.

Ooo! Oooo! I know this one! I even wrote a blog post about it. The most important flags are -p and -k, but see the blog post for more details.

The -m flag is cool, but it's something different. It recurses and I believe it doesn't rewrite links inside a page to point to local copies.

Thanks Nelson. That didn't quite do the trick -- there were some pictures defined in URLs in the .css files that it referenced incorrectly, but it got me close enough that I was able to finish it off by hand.
