The LA Times reports the Dodgers will receive $240 to $280 million per year for local broadcasting rights.
According to DOB, the Braves take in roughly $20-to-$25 million annually from their local TV rights — a deal Jeff Passan calls “the sport’s worst television contract,” negotiated as “a term of its sale” from Time Warner to Liberty Media.
A sale that was approved by Hapless Bud. Remember where to direct the blame when Jay Hey, Freddie and Med Dog are playing elsewhere a few years from now.
The deal doesn’t expire for another 20 years. God knows what shape the Braves will be in then.
