Dan Steinberg reports that Nationals ratings are soaring on MASN. Congratulations on the good news, Mr. Angelos!
More Good news! MASN will televise Stephen Strasburg's second triple-A start tonight! Thank you, Mr. Angelos!
Bad news! It's on tape delay, despite the Nationals playing the Mets this afternoon at 1, and the Syracuse Chiefs-Norfolk Tides game starting at 7. Why, Mr. Angelos, why? Well, Nationals fans hoping to watch Baseball Jesus will have to wait it out while Mr. Angelos's Orioles play the Mariners starting at 7PM on MASN, that's why.
Good news! MASN2 will be airing nothing but ESPN News from 7PM until approximately 10:30PM, so Nationals fans will at least have something to keep them occupied while waiting for Strasburg.
Congratulations, and thank you, Mr. Angelos.
