Time Warner signs 7 Billion deal with Dodgers for broadcast rights on cable.

The Los Angeles Times earlier reported the nation's second-largest cable operator will pay around $7 billion to carry the games.

term is in the 20-25 years range.

That's a pretty sick deal.

Pat Steinberg commented on this deal and he mentioned something about this deal structured and set up in such a way as to help minimize transfer payments.

I didn't quite hear all those thoughts but something along the lines of creating a shell Cable channel/company specific to airing the LA Dodgers games only. I didn't hear how that related to the transfer payments but he did mention that other sports who also have transfer payments from richer teams, would be taking a good hard look at this deal.
