Ventura to self on managing in last year of contract: ‘Do your job’

SHARE Ventura to self on managing in last year of contract: ‘Do your job’

NASHVILLE — Robin Ventura is in the last year of his contract, but it doesn’t seem to be of much concern to the White Sox manager.

He knows he will come under fire if the team gets off to a slow start in 2016. The Sox have had three straight losing seasons since Ventura guided them to an 85-77 season and second-place AL Central finish in his first year as manager in 2012.

Ventura was asked whether the job was still fun, and he brought up his contract unsolicited.

“We know that I have one year left on the contract,” Ventura said. “I’ve never been one to seek more years if it’s going to make me feel any better or the security of it. You come and do your job. I think that’s part of being in baseball. Even as a player, if you have one year left, come and do your job. Do the best you can and try to enjoy it. That part’s there, but it’s just part of being in the baseball.”
