  • Dodgers and Fox Sports talking $6 billion TV deal

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/dodger...,4821671.story

    Fox Sports could pay at least $6 billion to retain the Dodgers’ television rights, three parties familiar with the negotiations said Sunday.

    The deal could be worth three times what the Dodgers’ new owners paid for the team and almost 20 times the value of the Dodgers’ current television contract.
    Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

    If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

    What's staggering about this deal is that the yearly revenue from this will probably pay for not only the player payroll, but probably most of the entire organizations' payroll. The Dodgers could have a $200M player payroll and still have close to $80M left over--just from the TV revenue alone.

    Now let's just hope Ned doesn't try and coax Jason Schmidt out of retirement or re-sign Juan Uribe for 5 years/$80M.

      The scuttlebutt is the Dodgers revenue at 280 M per year (TV revenue only) will be more than all but 3 other franchises TOTAL revenue.

      And that does NOT include any revenue from tickets, parking, concessions, or jerseys/caps/souvenirs etc. they will also get.

      Spend it wisely

        For a fan of a team that just won the WS, you sound insecure (and jealous) whenever there's improvement going on in Dodger land. Spend wisely? What are you, an accountant that knows better than these guys?

          Rebuilding the minor league system is where I would start. In the 2012 Baseball America Prospect Handbook, the Dodgers' minor league system was ranked #23. This is what Baseball America said:

          "The McCourt ownership mess has wrecked havoc on a previously prosperous farm system, particularly in international signings, where Dodgers must bottom-feed rather than lead the way."

          Well, the Dodgers won't have to bottom-feed anymore! Logan White is a sharp guy. I'm sure he'll get things turned around.

            how did all that spending last season work out

            can you say 7.5 game lead to 8 game deficit

            Joe Blanton LMAO

            now let's look at THE WORLD CHAMPIONS

            Matt Cain drafted
            Tim Lincecum drafted
            Madison Bumgarner drafted
            Buster Posey drafted
            Pablo Sandoval drafted
            Brandon Crawford drafted
            Brandon Belt drafted

            in case you don't know it that is 2 world championships, a ROY, 2 Cy Youngs, a perfect game and an MVP

            and spending money does not build chemistry, teamwork and character

            we have 100s of examples of this

                One month at the end of the season with no time to adjust to a new league is hardly a proper litmus test...unless you're an irrational, biased thinker with a prejudiced, hate-filled agenda.

                  I absolutely agree. modern baseball doesn't work without a very good farm system. a lot of low payroll teams with great farms won and most big spenders without a good farm (cubs, mets before their owner was broke) did not do anything.

                  the yankees are big spenders too but they always had a solid farm too. LA needs to develope a good farm and not just rely on spending or they will end like the mets or cubs (and then the money will cease too). they have some smat people though like kasten who should know that.
                  I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

                      Joe Blanton is a free agent. Not sure why this guy is acting as if he's still on the Dodgers' payroll. Were you even surprised that this guy quickly popped out when this thread was created? He is one insecure fellow.

                          Let's face it, you expose your jealousy and insecurity every time the Dodgers do something to improve. How could I avoid bringing up the Giants when you're a Giants fan?

                          You would rather the Dodgers don't spend any money like the way they were during the bankruptcy era. Don't you worry about how they spend their money. It will just annoy you.
