And we're assuming U were just as shocked as we were.
So how will they make that money back, U ask?
Once the Dodger's exclusive contract with Fox ends in 2013, the team will be able to take bids from other networks.
Estimates have already reached as high as a possible $4 BILLION in revenue!
Just from TV!
A sports firm consultant said:
"This whole deal is dependent on the broadcast revenues. In many ways it was not a baseball team being marketed; a broadcast property was being marketed."
Which means they won't have to raise ticket prices and risk alienating fans.
Gotta spend money to make money we guess!
