08:09 AM ET 02.13 | As a manager, Robin Ventura doesn't seem to have a far horizon. Before a baseball game, don't ask him about what he'll do in the ninth inning. He's mostly concerned about what's going to happen in the first. ... Ventura is entering the second year of the three-year contract he signed in October of 2011. But when the White Sox went to him this winter and offered a one-year contract extension, Ventura said "no." This isn't to say that he won't manage after his current contract expires. He's just not ready to commit to anything past it. "You can see doing it longer, I think there's also a point where it needs to be somebody else," Ventura said Tuesday in an interview with Comcast SportsNet. "I think you can either burn out or people stop listening to you."
