07:28 AM ET 11.26 | The Dodgers and FOX have reportedly been in negotiations regarding the retention of the Dodgers' television rights, which according to sources familiar to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, could result in a $6 billion contract. According to Shaikin, if the two sides do not strike a deal by Friday, the Dodgers would have until the following Friday to present Fox with a final offer, according to the team's current contract. Fox would then have 30 days to accept or reject the offer. If the Dodgers and FOX do not strike a deal, the Dodgers would then be free to negotiate a television contract with other cable providers like Time Warner. Or they could start up their own team-owned channel. Wouldn't that be fantastic? Tune into channel 22-Dodger TV! Or perhaps we can call it the Bison Broadcast Network...BBN.

I wonder how much Gonzalez, HanRam, and Crawford's presence added to LA's price? I hadn't realized their contract was up, but big-name stars not only sell tickets, they also get TV sets to turn on.
