Markakis Extension Update Part 2

Baltimore Sun - Contract-extension talks between the Orioles and their star right fielder Nick Markakis have broken off and likely will not be revisited for at least six weeks.

Both club president Andy MacPhail and Markakis' agent, Jamie Murphy, confirmed that the sides exchanged proposals last week for the first time this offseason and, after several discussions, an agreement could not be reached.

"I wouldn't say [it's been] tiring, but it's been a long, drawn-out process," Markakis said by phone Tuesday. "It just goes back and forth. For the most part, like I've said 1,000 times, you want to come to something that is comfortable for both sides something good for the Orioles and something good for myself and my family."

I don't like this. We should of locked him up already!!!!
