Not even Vin Scully can catch a Dodgers game in L.A.

Time Warner Cable (TWC -0.2%) is no longer in negotiations with DirecTV (DTV -0.9%) over a carriage contract for SportsNet LA after talks broke down this week.

The company which paid a large amount for the rights to Los Angeles Dodgers baseball could be hurt by a sustained lack of distribution for the ambitious sports network.

Currently, 70% of L.A.-area households don't have access to Dodgers baseball - including long-time announcer Vin Scully who is a DTV subscriber and traces his Dodgers roots back to the Brooklyn days.
