No Extension Talks For Jenks

MLB.com's Scott Merkin talked to White Sox closer Bobby Jenks, who is arbitration-eligible for the first time.  Jenks told Merkin there's been no talk of an extension to date.  He sounds willing though:

"For me, if the White Sox offer a fair, long-term deal, we would take it [over] arbitration.  If it's not considered fair, then even as a worst-case scenario, I'm excited to go into arbitration with what I've been told is a strong case."

Jenks figures to top the first-year arb figure Huston Street received a few years ago, $3.3MM.  Jonathan Papelbon is also eligible for arbitration for the first time.
