There's going to come a point in time when these escalating team valuations and escalating player salaries will become unsustainable.

I mean, these television deals like the $3 billion deal the Angels signed (which is the main reason why the Dodgers were valued so high)....these deals can't keep coming in can they?

stay in oakland = eventual move entirely out of the Bay or worse contraction for he A's

blame oakland govt if anything

this is a 49ers, SF and Santa Clara redux (except the A's have only the half-hearted backing of their commissioner/league if anything)

Holy...RT @BillShaikin: Source: #Dodgers deal is all cash, no financing. MLB review a formality because no debt added to team liabilities.

lol at the Dodgers. They're going to use the TV money to recoup their investment instead of investing in payroll

Unlike the Angels and Texas Rangers, which signed a similar 20-year, $3 billion deal with Fox, the Dodgers' new television deal won't simply be a nice influx of cash used to upgrade the roster. It will likely be used to pay for the team, pay for improvements to the stadium and pay for developing the land surrounding the stadium.

"If you take the Fox deal or try to start your own network that's going to eat down your capital cost and you've just lost a huge share of revenue," Rosentraub said. "That's a source of revenue that other teams depend on and that's the issue. The Texas Rangers are swimming in cash and the Angels are swimming in cash because they didn't have these huge capital costs and their TV income is coming into the general operating fund. Well, you're not going to get that with the Dodgers. Not only that but you have problems with the stadium and have to make a significant investment in improving it. That's something the Angels and Rangers don't have to do. Then you have the parking and land surrounding it where you now have a partner in McCourt, who is at best, well, unpredictable. Sounds like a great deal, doesn't it?"


f**k the dodgers
