NEW YORK — The Baltimore Orioles, Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball were in court for four hours Monday in a dispute over television rights fees. Justice Lawrence K. Marks didn’t immediately issue a decision. The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network was established in 2005 after the Montreal Expos relocated to Washington and became the Nationals. The […]
NEW YORK (AP) — Buck Showalter and Matt Williams won the Manager of the Year awards Tuesday, turning a Beltway double play.
This year's Major League Baseball playoffs marks the first postseason in which managers have been able to officially challenge calls made by umpires.
Neither the Orioles nor the Washington Nationals actually play in any of the affected counties, but that hasn’t stopped Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz from making a bet with his counterparts in Montgomery (Isiah Leggett) and Prince George’s (Rushern L. Baker III) counties that the Orioles will last longer in baseball’s postseason than the Nats. […]
The Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals have clinched their spots in the postseason, but which team is better equipped to make it to the final stage?
A New York judge has granted the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network a preliminary injunction barring the Washington Nationals from pulling its games from MASN or otherwise trying to enforce a $10 million arbitration award while the network challenges the award in court.

Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown — where the Washington National's minor league Suns play — has had a bit of an influx in crowd and merchandise sales recently, thanks to Bryce Harper.

Under Armour Inc. has signed a multi-year partnership with outfielder Bryce Harper, the first pick of last year’s Major League Baseball draft by the Washington Nationals. Harper, who is playing with the Hagerstown Suns, the Nationals’ Class A affiliate, will wear Under Armour cleats and apparel during games and will be featured in in-store and […]
The Baltimore Orioles are ranked 20th out of the Major League’s 30 baseball teams in popularity, according to a Harris Interactive poll released this week. That’s down from last year’s ranking of 17th. The poll was conducted June 14 to 21. But hey, at least they beat the Washington Nationals (ranked 27th). At first that […]
Hey, remember that deal Peter Angelos finagled back in 2005 when the Nationals came to D.C.? You know, the one where the Orioles retain majority ownership of MASN while getting the rights to broadcast Nationals games? You know where I’m going with this. While not so impressive last year when the Nationals ratings were just […]
So the Washington Nationals just signed San Diego State pitcher Stephen Strasburg to a record-setting contract worth $15.1 million over four years, and the team’s next financial move is to practically give away game tickets for $1 a pop. Makes sense to me. Actually, sarcasm aside, it really does. The Nationals rank 14th of 16 […]
