After Commissioner Manfred announced that he is worried about the way teams are manipulating his new 10-day disabled list system, he let it be known that he will not be making an effort to help out with the Dodgers and their disaster of a television deal.
Manfred stated that getting involved with the Dodgers television deal and helping to fix the situation is not his job to do.

It would seem like that is actually a part of his job.
In 2011, Commissioner Bud Selig stopped Frank McCourt from accepting a 17-year cable deal with Fox because he did not think that it was right for the entirety of the Dodgers as an organization.
The hole keeps getting deeper in this television situation, and with no help from Commissioner Manfred, things might stay at a standstill.
Manfred either needs to re-evaluate what his job actually is, or go out of his way to help one of the biggest franchises in his league allow their fans to watch their team.
