Cable Games

I know a lot of Minnesota fans are worried that they won't be able to watch the Twins play on cable television. It might interest them to know that an arbitration panel has ruled that Cablevision must carry Yankees game on Steinbrenner's YES Network (link may require subscription).

I'm not sure what effect this will have on the Twins' Victory Sports network or the upcoming Cubs/Sox/Bulls venture. But the panel also implemented a price of $1.85 per subscriber, which is much lower that what the Twins are looking to receive (I believe $2.20).

So for any fans looking to take sides, I would see this as a good oppoturnity to demand that Pohlad drop his asking price.
