Sports briefs: Giants, FSN have partnership deal

The Giants and FSN Bay Area have agreed to a new long-term partnership. It was reported by a Bay Area newspaper that FSN Bay Area will be converted to Comcast SportsNet next year and the Giants will be a part-owner in the venture. However, basic programming — including Giants, A’s and Sharks games — will not change. Instead, the channel will add pre- and postgame shows and other related material.
