Jim Crane Says Astros Are "Not Going To Blink" In CSN Houston Talks
Astros Owner Jim Crane on Thursday night said the team is "not going to blink" as negotiations continue with DirecTV, Dish Network, AT&T U-verse and other providers over carriage of Comcast SportsNet Houston. Crane's comments came on KILT-AM a few hours after CSN Houston President & GM Matt Hutchings said that he was "becoming less confident deals can be struck before CSN's first Astros game broadcast Tuesday." Crane added, "We're willing to make some concessions here. We're not silly. We want fans to see the games" (CHRON.com, 3/28).
