Cardinals, FOX Sports Reach Lucrative TV Deal

Jul 30, 2015 8:03 AM

The St. Louis Cardinals have reached a new television deal with Fox Sports Midwest that will guarantee the team more than $1 billion.

The organization and local broadcast partner are expected to announce a new, 15-year agreement Thursday morning.

The new deal will begin with the 2018 season, continue to feature as many as 150 televised regular-season games, and also provides the Cardinals with a minority stake in the network.

"This does give us a great deal of stability over the next 15 years and does so in a market that has been shifting," chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said. "It has a nice increase in rights fees as well as the equity component and as a whole it will allow us to remain as competitive as we have been with our payroll, with our spending in the international markets, with our activity in amateur markets and other ways we have invested in development. We have certainty going forward."

Union Monitoring Whether Cardinals Hacking Affected Player Market

Jul 16, 2015 7:00 AM

As the federal investigation into the St. Louis Cardinals continues for hacking into the computer database of the Houston Astros, the player's union has an interest to learn whether any information obtained may have affected a player's market.

If the Astros kept notes on free agents -- in terms of how they valued them, etc. -- the Cardinals could have used that information to adjust bids accordingly.

"As you know that investigation is ongoing," union head Tony Clark said. "We've have been connected to baseball throughout and we'll have an understanding or appreciation once that investigation completes itself as to what all happened there. We have bits and pieces and some understanding, but at this point in time, from what we understand, that concern isn't there (that a market was manipulated). Doesn't mean it may not be there when all is said and done, based on the information we get, but right now it's not there."
