The Los Angeles Dodgers sold for $2 billion in 2012. Two billion!
That's, like, two thousand million! It's, like, so much more dough than any club has ever before sold for that even Krispy Kreme would cry uncle.
Yet baseball went an Alex Rodriguez-in-the-postseason-like 0 for 10 in the Associated Press' Top 10 stories of 2012.
Amazing that in a year in which Dodger Stadium was buried under an avalanche of cash, Miguel Cabrera became the first Triple Crown winner in more than four decades, a modern-record-tying seven no-hitters were thrown and Mike Trout and Bryce Harper introduced themselves as two of the most exciting rookies in generations ... it mostly remains a silent night for baseball in the dead of winter. List-wise.
Listen, I've seen the lists. Checked 'em twice.
