NEXT CHAPTER: In DC, Adam Kilgore writes the June 30 ruling "might only begin a new, litigious chapter in the acrimonious, years-long squabble over profits from MASN." The Nats last week in New York Supreme Court "filed a motion" against MASN, but "that case has been sealed." MLB, the Orioles and the Nats yesterday issued statements acknowledging that the dispute "remains unsettled" (WASHINGTON POST, 7/30). In Baltimore, Peter Schmuck notes the dispute "continues an ongoing feud between the two teams, since the Orioles were given a much larger share of MASN to compensate them for the loss of potential gate and broadcast revenue they were expected to suffer because of the arrival of a second major league baseball team in the region" (Baltimore SUN, 7/30).
