Tribe signs journeyman starter, starts cable TV station

Same day. Irony, anyone?

In fact, Dolan said the new network’s expected revenues were already factored into the 2006 payroll, which is expected to eclipse $60 million. “We think this is the way to generate more revenue, and we will put it back in the payroll in order to support the team,” Dolan said. “There is certainly risk that we will not generate the revenue we think we will. We think that risk lies largely in the first couple years. But we are trying to build a strong, viable business.”

Tough business, this multi-media-sports-empire stuff. Today’s signing probably means Millwood is history. I’m not holding out much hope for this rotation beyond Lee, Sabathia, and Westbrook.
