I don't see it happening. But in 2010 when I talked to Jay's agent and he told me they were all for it, I thought it was one-sided and things remained quiet up until the point where it actually happened. I think Jocketty is pretty private in terms of doing stuff like this.
Still, don't see it happening. Bruce is under control and they still have time to do this extension in a year once there is a possible clearer picture of who in the starting rotation will get long-term deals. We can't keep everyone. I do hope Jay is who we keep because I know he'll take less than market value to stay here and I think he's safe to provide the value while pitchers are not as safe as corner outfielders over the long haul.
