150 Pirate Games Per Year, Thank You Mr. Coonelly

The Pittsburgh Pirates will be on television, in high definition, a minimum of 150 times in 2010.  FSN and the Bucs announced a long term deal today.  A couple of things:

What a great move. 

Mario and Ron Burkle had to have wind of this a number of months ago.  I certainly believe they had some different plans in mind.

I don’t see specifically, just how many years the  ‘ long term’  deal actually consists of in the article, but have heard rumors that it’s numerous years.  I will dig into that information.

Is FSN banking on the Pirates prospects making some noise?  It sure does seem that way and I certainly believe Frank Coonelly had a lot to do with putting together this deal.
