Reds manager Dusty Baker asked management about a contract extension, according to a major-league source, but evidently the team is not yet ready to decide upon his future.
Baker, in the last year of his deal, could be replaced if the Reds continue to flounder.
(Insert Joke Here.)
UPDATE: Just to be fair, Baker has denied this.
Dusty Baker said a report from foxsports.com that he asked for a contract extension is not true.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Nothing to it,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Where do rumors like that come from?Ã¢â‚¬Â
There was no time frame mentioned in the report. Baker, of course, is in the last year of a three-year contract.
