I don't have the time to do a lot of research on this, so I apologize if I'm misinformed, but I believe the teams that are getting huge tv deals are mostly getting them by starting their own networks or by renegotiating deals with networks they don't own. The Mets already have their own network (SNY), so unless they decide to scrap that and sign with somebody else for more money, I don't see how they get a big payday. As for the Sox, I don't know for sure what their status is with Comcast Sportsnet (which they co-own along with Comcast, the Cubs, the Bulls and the Blackhawks), but in one of the Cubs/WGN articles it was mentioned the Cubs are locked in until 2019, it stands to reason the Sox have the same deal and therefore won't be getting the huge cash any time soon.
