GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura says he turned down a one-year contract extension in October, wanting to concentrate on the two years remaining on his deal.
Ventura said Wednesday he will re-visit his future when his contract is up. He downplayed any suggestion that he doesn't want to be a long-term manager.
General manager Rick Hahn says Ventura simply wants to make sure he is ``the right guy'' when the time comes to discuss a new deal.
