MASN Has Stopped Paying the Nationals

Now comes a new dispute with some stink from the last one — specifically, the $25 million that MLB secretly advanced to the Nationals to soothe team owner Ted Lerner’s problems with being forced to license its games at a discount.

According to documents filed Monday in New York, MASN has made cash flow payments to both teams every year early in the season. By June 2018, though, the Nationals hadn’t received their payout and accordingly inquired about the missing money. Thus began months of correspondence between the two clubs and the MLB Commissioner without resolution. The Nationals apparently went into this offseason without TV money.

Peter Angelo’s failing health prompts MLB to demand ownership answers from Orioles

Major League Baseball has reached out to the Baltimore Orioles ownership requesting a formal answer on who the current leadership consists of by June, according to multiple sources and first reported by The Baltimore Sun.

Though long-time owner Peter Angelo’s two sons Louis and John have become more involved in team activities while their father continues to deal with health issues, Major League Baseball and all club owners must pass a formal approval of whoever the Orioles deem to be the new person in control.

The next club owners meeting takes place in June, which is when the league would like an answer, according to multiple unnamed sources. This gives Baltimore around three months to come up with an response to the MLB.

*Sends in application to become owner of the Orioles*
