Dusty Baker The Reds have offered manager Dusty Baker a contract extension, Baker told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer . However, Baker wouldn't give too many more details.

"We just got the proposal a few days ago," Baker said. "We're still evaluating it."

Baker said he doesn't have a timetable or a deadline for a decision.

"I'm concentrating on winning," Baker said. "I've said that all along. Everything is cool. It will work out."

Baker's three-year contract (at $3.5 million per year) is over at the end of the season. The Reds are 220-223 under Baker, including 68-51 this season. The team hasn't had a winning season since 2000 and haven't' been to the playoffs since 1995.
