Nationals name Dave Martinez as manager

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

The two sides hadn't negotiated a finalized contract as of Saturday night, but a source confirmed the finalized deal (which was first reported by The Washington Post) this morning.

The Washington Nationals have found their next manager in Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez according to a report by Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

The Washington Nationals have reportedly hired Davey Martinez, a man with no previous managerial experience, to replace Dusty Baker.

Martinez has served as bench coach for Joe Maddon since 2008, with the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cubs.

As the rookie manager takes over in Washington, his three-year deal reflects a commitment new to the Nationals. They did not meet with Joe Girardi, the World Series-winning manager let go by the Yankees last week.

Martinez joins new Mets manager Mickey Callaway as new skippers in the NL East.

The announcement will be official after the World Series because baseball doesn't like to announce things during the October Classic.

Martinez played 16 season as an outfielder in the majors, for the Cubs, Expos, Reds, Giants, White Sox, Rays, Blue Jays, and Braves. Baker led the Nationals to the first back-to-back division titles in franchise history, but the team fell in Game 5 of the National League Division Series both times.

But the Nationals did not struggle to negotiate with their manager this time, committing three years (and perhaps a fourth) to Martinez in a marked departure from their normal handling of managers.
