Where is the line between ruling on the fairness of a private arbitration and retrying the arbitration itself? This is where a NY judge finds himself as he grapples with latest stage of the long-running MASN case.

Hearing now over. No major surprises. Both sides still very dug in. Judge intends to issue ruling ASAP, and as you expect, no major tells. Pointed questions to both sides.

We're now moving on to other arguments MASN/Orioles have raised, notably MLB's role in the second RSDC proceeding re the Nats' rights.

In the hearing today, the Nats' Ed Cohen and Orioles' Louis Angelos are here observing. First issue up for argument - the $25 million advance MLB made to the Nats, and the Orioles' claim that payment created evident partiality in league arbitration proceedings.

The long-running MASN media rights case again reaches a courtroom this morning in NYC. Oral arguments in the Nationals’ bid to have a MLB arbitration decision in the favor confirmed. The Orioles-controlled MASN still seeking to have rights determination referred to third-party.

The NBA names Kate Jhaveri as its new CMO. She'll start Aug. 15 and succeed the retired Pamela El. With career stops at Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, and Dell, Jhaveri has lots of tech credentials to feed into the league's growing ambitions there.

We're saddened to learn Jim Bouton, 80, has died. The former @Yankees All-Star pitcher revolutionized baseball journalism and literature as the author of "Ball Four" — named one of @nypl's best books of the 20th century. #SABR bio: https://sabr.org/bioproj/person/75723b1f …

Ball Four indeed on the short list as one of the most influential baseball books ever published. RIP

Cleveland garnered lots of praise as MLB ASG host city, & perhaps the most impressive number is their attendance for Play Ball Park, the new name for ASG fan festival previously known as FanFest. They did 149,513, up by a third from DC last year & best since 2009 in St. Louis.

AL extends its MLB All-Star Game dominance with 4-3 win over NL in Cleveland. Seventh win in a row, and pushes the junior circuit’s record to 14-3 since 2003, 25-6-1 since 1988.

Quoted @ericstephen

Mike Trout has more career WAR than 3 of the 4 players inducted into the HOF this year. He also needs a triple to complete the 2x All-Star cycle https://www.sbnation.com/mlb/2019/7/9/20685436/mike-trout-mlb-all-star-game-national-stage?utm_campaign=ericstephen&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter …

Trout's obviously an all-time great. But this comparison highlights why WAR can be instructive, but isn't a be-all, end-all. Rivera is unquestionably the best ever to play his position, and logged two entire seasons worth of high-leverage playoff work and posted a 0.70 ERA there
