MLB TV Deals

Unread postby motherscratcher » Tue Nov 27, 2012 4:56 pm

Fangraphs breaks down the TV deals of all MLB teams after the Dodgers insane deal came to light.

$240 mil/year for the Dodgers. Holy crapburgers.

It illustrates the ever widening gap between the haves and have nots. The way baseball is structured it's an unfixable problem from a competitive standpoint.

The Indians aren't at the bottom, but are pretty close to it.

Anyone still thing $2 bil for the Dodgers was a bad investment? Wow.

That being said, after a closer look at the numbers here, the $30 mil the Indians pull in from STO annually is pretty close to in line for a large chunk of the league. It's just Peanuts compared to a handful of Super Lucrative deals and soon-to-be deals out there.
