On Sunday MASN's F.P. Santangelo made an impressive one-handed catch of a Xavier Nady foul ball into the MASN booth at Fenway. Oh! Speaking of MASN, here's the Washington Post's Thomas Boswell on the MASN-Angelos-Nats deal:
Just as the Nats’ profile is skyrocketing, the argument between the Nationals and Peter Angelos’s MASN network over the value of Washington’s cable TV rights has met yet another delay. The sport’s revenue fairness committee has delayed giving its opinion of the fair market value of the Nats’ TV rights until July 1.
Talk about luck. The longer the haggling, the more likely the value of the Nats rights will jump. The 2012 payment is $29 million. The reset figure the Nats seek is $108 million per year for five seasons. Nats to MASN: Keep stalling, the price goes up.

But back to F.P. -- here's the video of his catch (and a few screencaps -- via MASN):
