The Marlins would like to enter that "worst ownership" conversation. Miami fans are getting had.

Of course.

I remember a team in Brooklyn.

Anyone remember an MLB team in Montreal?

As both a former Orioles' and Nats' full-season ticket holder, I think I *do* understand why the Nats' narrative is dominant: because it is, quite simply and objectively, right/just. They (the Nats) took what they could get in the MASN deal and did so only because they had zero, zilch, nada leverage or say in the matter.  Just like the Astros' sale where Bud Selig forced a move to the AL and Jim Crane had no leverage. Also a travesty.

Yes, Angelos is a brilliant lawyer and certainly may prevail.  But he is also, IMHO, a greedy a-hole and the worst owner in the league.  I used to love the O's and pay thousands of $$ a year to see them.  Now they can, well, kiss my backside.

Angelos has gotten precisely the team and results he deserves.  Karma is a b**ch.

I really don't understand how the Nats' narrative is now dominant.  I guess they were better with PR.  The Commissioner, Orioles, and Nationals agreed to a process to bring them into the area with the MASN ownership as part of the agreement.  Now, the Nats new owners don't like what the original owners agreed to.  You know what that's known as - part of the purchase agreement.  If you didn't like the terms, don't buy the team.  Angelos is a great negotiator.  He meddles too much in the running of the team, but he is rarely on the wrong side of a contract.  In fact, his insistence on shorter contracts or voiding deals due to medical testing has proven correct. He supported the players in the 94-95 strike by refusing to field a team of replacements.  I'd say, he's rarely on the wrong side of history.  

The moral of the story is you don't just get more because you want more.  You get what you agreed to.  Angelos is a great negotiator and an outstanding litigator. He's going to prevail in this, because it's basic contract law.  He's also going to have his legal fees paid by the Lerners.  Doing right by the Nats is abiding by the terms MLB and the original Nats ownership agreed to.  They'll get their shares as they vest over the 20 year period.

Interesting and surprisingly analytic article in the Washington Post recently about why $500 million is a reasonable contract aspiration for Bryce.  Of course the interminable battle between the Nats and Orioles/MASN over TV revenue makes any sum close to that impossible for Washington to consider.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fancy-stats/wp/2017/11/16/bryce-harper-would-be-a-bargain-for-nats-at-500-million/?tid=a_inl&utm_term=.79a783113d78

Will Peter Angelos ever be forced to do right by the Nats? Perhaps if he did the karma gods would allow the O's some good luck.  Angeles and Dan Snyder have ruined the previously respected franchises of my youth in the DC area.  It pains me greatly.

I had Goldschmidt ahead of Harper even before the injury. I think it comes down to Goldy and Arenado(he has tremendous value on offense and defense). Blackmon could change the landscape by getting to 100 RBIs which is unheard of for a NL leadoff hitter.

Looks like Harper will miss significant time, and with the Kershaw injury, would you say Goldschimidt is the favorite for the NL MVP? Or Blackmon? Possibly his teammate Arenado? 

Dare I say Bellinger with the impact he has made to the Dodgers?

I can't see the voters going Stanton or Votto, even though both are having ridiculously great seasons.

Should be an interesting vote.

One of the ugliest and most fantastic highlights/lowlights I've ever seen ...

On pace to have a 100 point swing in BABIP in consecutive seasons.
