The Revolution will be Televised

Apparently, MLB President Bob DuPoy has insisted that the Nats will be on TV by opening day, by hook or by crook. This indicates that they've reached an acceptable place with Angelos and are just trying to improve it, or (more likely), that they are prepared with contingency plans for the case where they cannot settle.

I have a feeling that the potential ownership groups, Marion Barry and so on have made themselves heard that they don't want Angelos getting a sweetheart deal at the expense of the Nationals. I think they're still willing to give him at least half of a regional network, but I don't think they're willing to budge any more than that. If so, this could end up being a fun year, as we may be following both a new team and a new lawsuit.
