I'm not suggesting the Reds rethink their present position, although my guess is they'll revisit it next year or the year after.

    It still might get done this offseason. This situation kind of mirroring when he signed the extension in 2010. Sosnick began talking about it late November of 2010 back then, and then it got done close to Christmas time after Jocketty said in early December there'd been no talks.

    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.

    I would add that with Longoria signing for 17 million per, maybe that would put Bruce at 15 per. That 2.4 WAR from last season is concerning though. I'd want to know what Bruce wants before making a call here.
