The Nationals, under the new collective bargaining agreement, will cease receiving funds in revenue sharing, making their television money all the more important.

I don't think we should be operated like a small market team, and I don't think we're in a small market. That said, I don't see how we're exempt from the revenue sharing based on our market size if we're forced into a television deal with MASN that hasn't been paying us market value.

If Selig/MLB freaks us on this renegotiation/reset my head will explode.

I wonder if/when Angelos sells the Orioles if there would finally be a way to buy out of this thing and open up the bidding.
