[10/10/2016] Tsutomu Ito still mulling over extension

Now that the season is officially over for the Chiba Lotte Marines, attention will shift toward whether or not Tsutomu Ito agrees to return next year. Ito told reporters on October 9 that his job was to put together a winning team and that he still needed to think about things. On October 10 he added that he was frustrated this season because he did not have enough players. He also said that he asked for some things when he last spoke to the team about the extension. His decision will depend on how they handle his request.
