Where’s the money, Anthopoulos?
As Parkes just posted over at Getting Blanked, MLB has announced an extension of their national (US) broadcast TV partnerships with FOX and TBS, which will add a cool $6.8-billion to be spread amongst the 30 ballclubs starting in 2014, until the deal expires in 2021.
Money quote [Note: heh.]:
“This means that each team, beginning in 2014 and lasting until 2021, will receive almost $52 million annually, which is more than double what clubs received under the previous agreements with ESPN, FOX and TBS.”
