An Insane Valuation For The Dodgers' New TV Deal: Is There Air Left In The Room?

I have done almost nothing to dispel the charge, lately leveled at Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness, that I am "mostly-inactive" here; too true, too true. I didn't even mention Mike Trout's Rookie of the Year award, f'r chrissakes. I'm not particularly worried about that at the moment, though I suppose I should be.

Anyway, the short version is that the Dodgers are said to be closing in on a $6-7 billion deal over 25 years, which would put the average annual return for the Dodgers at $280M at the high end. That stupendous valuation remains a product of a great deal of unfinished selling. I remain to be convinced that Dodgers fans won't end up as 42% of Padres fans have, blacked out of their home team's broadcasts thanks to contractual disputes between the network and the cable operators.
