Dusty Baker still mum on new contract

Reds manager Dusty Baker (

The Cincinnati Reds have offered Dusty Baker a new contract. It was offered even before the Reds had sewn up the NL Central Division championship.

But Baker is not saying much about the contract’s status. Several reports have said that he’ll sign the deal after the season is finished for good.

Currently in the final year of a three-year deal, Baker led the Reds to the 2010 NL Central Division title. This will be their first playoff appearance in 15 years.

There are reports from media sources saying that Baker is close to a new agreement that has some items put in that he specifically wants but in his words, “reports can be wrong.” His contract is not the main point according to Baker.

The Reds clinched the division title with a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night at Great American Ball Park.

Tampa Bay Rays clinch playoff spot; AL East championship still within reach

The Tampa Bay Rays have secured the franchise’s second playoff berth.

The magic number to clinch their second AL East chanpionship in the past three years is any combination of four Tampa Bay wins or New York Yankees losses. The Rays own the tiebreaker after winning the season series between the clubs 10 games to 8.

David Price, who blasted the fans in the Tampa area for Monday night’s low attendance of 12,446 fans, was the winning pitcher in Tuesday night’s 5-0 clinching game against Baltimore. Price, now a 19-game winner pitched eight innings, allowed six hits, struck out eight, walked none and only one runner got past second base during the game.

Tuesday’s announced crowd was 17,891, 5,000 below the Tampa Bay season average.

Team president Matt Silverman announced before Tuesday’s game that the Rays will be giving away 20,000 free tickets for Wednesday night’s regular-season home finale against the Orioles.
