Whether your source is actually a viable source or not, the Dunn extension talks really aren't too surprising. I've always thought the Jocketty "we will not discuss extensions during the season" line is moreso to keep the media out of the way while discussions are ongoing. If both parties tell the media there's nothing going on and the media isn't bothering the team and the player, then it's not nearly such a large distraction.
All that said, it wouldn't be shocking at all to hear Dunn inking an extension this September.
