Baseball teams around the country are buying into cable channels. MASN down in DC, YES and SNY in NYC.
Also, I don't think the government would care (anti-trust) if Comcast owned FSN-NE and NESN. LA has FSN and FSN-prime ticket. Maybe Comcast could operate NESN for the Sox and Bruins the way Comcast runs SNY for the Mets in NYC. That is just like the CSNs around the country.
In this past Friday's globe it was reported that the Yankees are shopping YES Network to see if someone will pay them a kings ransom for it. Hey, if you feel as if the value has peeked, why not sell now?
