Can't get enough Dodgers? Well starting tonight, you're in luck.

There's a new channel launching featuring nothing but Clayton Kershaw, Yaisel Puig, and Vin Scully 24/7. But if you're not a Time Warner subscriber you may be out of luck come opening day.

That's because the new channel, Sportsnet LA, is playing hardball with pay TV providers including DirecTV, Cox, and AT&T. Our next guests will be no doubt be spending lots of time at the negotiating table over the next few weeks.

They are Stan Kasten, President of the Dodgers, which owns the channel, and David Rone, the President of Time Warner Cable Sports, which operates it.
