SIGN OF THE TIMES? YAHOO SPORTS' Jeff Passan wrote the Dodgers' proposed TV rights deal is the "siren that baseball's new era has arrived, one in which the sport's best revenue-sharing intentions cannot save it from the self-cannibalizing greed that drives these TV mega-contracts -- and drives a wedge between the haves and have-nots harder to extract than sword from stone." When the deal closes, the Dodgers will "make more money from local TV alone than 26 franchises take in from all of their revenue streams" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 11/25).
