Baltimore Orioles: Mike Hargrove remains unsure where he will be next season. The Orioles manager, who by all accounts has done a solid job this season, met with the club's executive vice president of baseball operations, Jim Beattie, on Thursday. But according to the Washington Post, the issue that undoubtedly was at the front of each man's mind -- the contract status of Hargrove and his six coaches -- never came up. The 53-year-old is in the final year of his contract, which he signed before the 2000 season. It was a three-year contract with a team option for 2003, which the team exercised decisively at the end of his first season in Baltimore.
