Nationals Hire Dave Martinez As New Manager

Nationals to hire Dave Martinez as new manager, according to cryptic Wade Boggs tweet

MASNsports.com - MLB Team News - Washington Nationals

Martinez played 16 season as an outfielder in the majors, for the Cubs, Expos, Reds, Giants, White Sox, Rays, Blue Jays, and Braves.

Have the Nationals already hired Dave Martinez as their new manager?

The 53-year-old Martinez doesn't have any managerial experience, and therefore represents a stark departure from Baker, who was the winningest active manager when his Nationals' tenure ended.

New York Mets hitting coach Kevin Long and former Boston Red Sox skipper John Farrell were also candidates for the Nationals' job. Along the way, Martinez interviewed for a few manager openings, including to replace Davey Johnson in Washington, a job that eventually went to the hilariously miscast Matt Williams.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters Thursday it's time for Martinez to get his own team.


Jorge Castillo and Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reported Sunday the contract will have a fourth-year option.

That hard-nosed policy came back to haunt the Nationals two years ago when they initially selected Bud Black as their manager but saw negotiations break down and the veteran skipper walk away.

None of the coaches who served under Baker were retained by the team, and no new coaching hires have been announced yet. The two were together with the Cubs for the past three seasons, including that team's 2016 World Series championship. But the Nats were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs both times under Baker.

The 53-year-old also spent 16 years as an Major League Baseball player with the Cubs, Montreal Expos, Cincinnati Reds, San Francisco Giants, Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers, Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays.
