The Los Angeles Dodgers enter the 2015 season with high hopes, the highest payroll and more than 3 million tickets sold.
And once again, most Dodger fans will only be able to see regular season games if they go to Chavez Ravine.
That's because Time Warner Cable, which paid the Dodgers more than $8 billion to launch SportsNet LA last year, still hasn't come to terms with other television providers to carry the channel. DirecTV is the leading carrier that's refusing to pay a reported $4 a month per subscriber for Dodger games. The standoff leaves seven out of 10 Southern California residents shut out unless they go to the stadium to see the games in person.
