The MASN Mess reaches the first milepost. There's a hearing today on the Orioles' motion to dismiss Comcast's lawsuit. It's possible that the judge will issue an immediate ruling, or that could come at a later time.
Apparently, the Nationals aren't recognized when they go out in public. I wonder why that could be? Perhaps that has something to do with the point above? Naaaaah.
Marlon Byrd's suspension was overturned. He'll have to pay a fine for being ejected, but won't have to miss a game. Somewhere in the southern hemisphere, a crank Aussie is screaming "Bollocks!"

Baseball Prospectus reports that the Nationals had a deal in place to acquire infielder Julio Lugo, but that the Nationals were having a hard time working out the financial details.
