On Friday, Arizona Diamondbacks' 3rd baseman Mark Reynolds's agent once again met with the team to discuss a contract extension. There has been no agreements with the two sides yet, and Reynolds is kind of frustrated with all of this, calling them a "distraction." He also states that the deal is "still a work in progress." Obviously, he is frustrated that this has been going on for a long time. 

There are many questions for D-Backs fans, as they wonder how much the deal is going to be, and if there's actually even going to be a deal between the team and Reynolds. There has been no reports yet if they are even close to a deal. We do know one thing though: they haven't given up yet, as the talks continue. Both sides hope to get it over with by Opening Day.

Reynolds had his breakout season last year, hitting 44 HRs and stealing 24 bases, a 20-20 club member. If he signs, it ought to be a big contract, since these kinds of players come rarely: a player that can run, hit for power, and field like a gold glover. 

D-Backs fans, let's hope the team can lock this guy up for a while.
