A New York judge has denied the Nationals‘ attempt to block • Absender: zhangzk, 13.05.2019 03:21

Orioles from having an arbitrator determine whether baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred can decide yet another dispute between the teams over broadcast money from the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network.Washington’s petition to stop Baltimore from taking the matter to arbitration was turned down Wednesday by Justice Barry R. Ostrager of New York Supreme Court in Manhattan , who ruled the American Arbitration Association can determine whether Manfred can decide the case, which involves a claim MASN failed to distribute cash to the Nationals last year.The 2005 MASN partnership agreement between the Orioles and Nationals empowered the baseball commissioner to decide disputes between the network’s owners, but only if Major League Baseball did not have an ownership or financial interest in the two teams or the network at the time of the disagreement.Washington said in its petition to stay the arbitration that MASN, which is controlled by the Orioles, made cash flow distributions from 2009-17 but did not in 2018, and the Nationals invoked the dispute resolution procedure on Sept. 20. The Nationals told Manfred on March 22 that mediation had failed, and the Orioles started an arbitration case with the AAA later that day. The Nationals said the Orioles had not objected previously to Manfred deciding the matter, and sued Monday to block the AAA.With the sides fighting over how much money Washington was due for broadcast rights from 2012-16, MLB loaned the Nationals $25 million in 2013 , money Washington said it paid back with interest last Nov. 5 — 10 days before the primary legal case involving the teams was reheard by a baseball panel. Baltimore claims the loan created a financial interest for MLB and means Manfred should not decide the latest dispute.Ostrager wrote that it is up to the AAA to decide whether MLB had a financial interest in the Nationals at the time the dispute started.MASN was established in March 2005 after the Montreal Expos relocated to Washington and became the Nationals, moving into what had been Baltimore’s exclusive broadcast territory since 1972. The Orioles were given a supermajority partnership interest in MASN, starting at 90 percent, and Washington made a $75 million payment to the network for an initial 10 percent stake.The agreement called for the Nationals’ equity to increase 1 percent annually, starting after the 2009 season, with a cap of 33 percent. The network’s rights payments to each team were set at $20 million apiece in 2005 and 2006, rising to $25 million in 2007, with $1 million annual increases through 2011.In November 2015, New York State Supreme Court Justice Lawrence K. Marks threw out a decision by baseball’s Revenue Sharing Definitions Committee that said MASN owed the Nationals $298 million for the team’s 2012-16 television rights. The Orioles argued that the panel Sandy Koufax Jersey , which then included Pittsburgh Pirates President Frank Coonelly, Tampa Bay Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg and New York Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon, was biased in favor of the Nationals.The New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division voted 3-2 in 2017 to send the case back to the RSDC. A reconstituted RSDC heard arguments on Nov. 15-16: Milwaukee Brewers chairman Mark Attanasio, Seattle Mariners President Kevin Mather and Toronto Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro comprised the panel. Its decision is pending.Jonathan D. Schiller, a lawyer for the Orioles and MASN, said his clients are grateful for Ostrager’s decision. Stephen R. Neuwirth, a lawyer for the Nationals, did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. A look at what’s a happening around the majors today:LA LONGBALLSCody Bellinger and the Los Angeles Dodgers are on a home run rampage, hitting a whopping 21 in their first eight games — that’s the second-most in major league history in that span , only behind the St. Louis Cardinals’ 23 in 2000. After launching a franchise-record 235 homers last year, the NL champion Dodgers have connected in every game so far this season.Rockies righty Jon Gray tries to keep the Dodgers in the park when he starts against them at Coors Field. Bellinger leads the majors with six home runs.SKIDSThe defending World Series champion Red Sox are 2-7 on their season-opening 11-game road trip. They got pounded 15-8 Friday night in Arizona — starting pitcher Rick Porcello flung a water cooler against the back wall of the Boston dugout after getting hit hard, and infielder Eduardo Nunez came in to pitch in the eighth inning and gave up a home run to Alex Avila. … Joey Votto and the Reds have been shut out in three straight games. Their scoreless string of 28 innings is the longest for Cincinnati since a 30-game drought in 2015. … The Cubs have lost six straight. … The Marlins have dropped nine games in a row at Atlanta.NICE STARTPadres rookie Chris Paddack tries to duplicate his early success when he starts at St. Louis. In his major league debut last weekend, the 23-year-old righty gave up two hits and one run in five innings against San Francisco.Paddack will aim to slow down Cardinals newcomer Paul Goldschmidt, who has homered five times in seven games.CHECK HIMThe Seattle Mariners will see how second baseman Dee Gordon is feeling, a day after he left a game because of a tight groin. Manager Scott Servais isn’t sure whether Gordon will be back in the lineup in Chicago against the White Sox.WELCOMEHoping to boost a thin starting rotation, the Orioles have signed Dan Straily to a $575,000, one-year contact.The 30-year-old right-hander was released March 25 by the Marlins. He was 15-15 in two seasons with the Marlins.Straily was limited to 23 starts last year Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey , when he went on the disabled list twice because of forearm and oblique strains. He had a 5.94 ERA over 16 2/3 innings in five spring training appearances.Baltimore’s rotation includes Alex Cobb, Andrew Cashner, Dylan Bundy and David Hess, and Nate Karns has been used twice as an opener. Cobb strained a groin late in spring training and was activated from the injured list on Thursday.
