Things like this make me wonder how smaller market teams can compete. I guess the answer is they cant.

Guess that explains the Pujols contract.

Angels and Rangers thanks to their monster TV deals have joined the Red Sox and Yankees in potential ability to spend money.

Why are the Angels broadcasts worth $150 million per year?

White Sox blew it when they sold SportsVision. JR panicked when he saw red ink.

NESN lost money for years but John Harrington and Jeremy Jacobs held on.

What is amazing is Anaheim usually has some of the lowest ratings in MLB.

White Sox are paid 100k per broadcast give or take? Be hard to compete with others resources being 10x higher than your own.

You can see it isn't because of ratings.

BUT RSN's don't care about ratings, just how many homes they are in as they get paid even if you never watch a game.

White Sox get $450,000 a game from CSN ( same as Cubs )

It is not public what WGN/WCIU pays but it is far less than what CSN pays.

Games on WGN/America all 30 teams get an equal share as it is considered 'out of market'.

So then Fenway, what will the local Fox Sports turn around and increase the cost per subscriber to the cable and satellite companies? Then what does the company up the monthly bill by?

No idea about in California

In New England - NESN (Red Sox/Bruins) gets $3.22 a month and CSN-NE (Celtics) $1.09

In Chicago the teams 'own' a part of CSN but that means little as we saw what happened to FOX Sports Chicago that just rolled up and died.

FSN-Chicago came back as the Big Ten Network and seems to be doing just fine.
