ESPN: Manfred Predicts Resolution Of MASN Dispute

How long did Jarndyce v. Jarndyce take?

“I’m not going to say a lot about MASN because it is in litigation,” said Manfred, who took over from Bud Selig on Jan. 25. “I will say this much. I think in reasonably short order, there will be a resolution of MASN, either by the litigation being done or some other mechanism.”

When the teams couldn’t agree on what the Nats’ rights fees should be, they appeared before MLB’s Revenue Sharing Definitions Committee: Pittsburgh Pirates president Frank Coonelly, New York Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and Tampa Bay Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg.

The committee ruled last June 30 that MASN should pay the Nationals about $298 million from 2012-16, an average of just under $60 million—or approximately $20 million a year more than the current rights fee. When MASN didn’t comply with the arbitration award, the Nationals attempted to end the rights agreement.
