The Curse of Time Warner

By Nathan Callahan | A Tale of Dodger Greed |

You could say it would set a bad precedent for these blacked-out Dodgers to win the World Series. As the highest playroll team in Major League Baseball, the logic goes, Time Warner (or whatever the conglomerate who owns the Dodgers is calling itself these days) needed to jack up the price. They needed to make their product exclusive.  But in doing so, the Dodgers crossed their fans.  The public trust became a product line.  What they gained today, they could easily lose tomorrow.

There are ghosts at Chavez Ravine where, in 1957, thousands of low-income residents, mostly of Mexican descent, were cast out in order to build Dodger Stadium.  Now, as I stand near the third base line, I can hear their spirits whispering in the hills. May a cold wind blow in from the outfield when a Dodger connects.  May a bad hop turn an inning-ending double play into an opponent’s game winning hit.  May a blue-capped shortstop lose the ball in the lights.

It’s a messed-up game.  Boston had the Curse of the Bambino.  Chicago had the Curse of the Billy Goat.  Los Angeles has the Curse of Time Warner.
