Nationals to hire Cubs bench coach Davey Martinez as next manager
Oct 30, 2017, 01:56
When Maddon became the manager of the Cubs before the 2015 season, Martinez followed him to Chicago. Exactly how much of Maddon has rubbed off on Martinez remains to be seen, but the Nationals' new manager does have a history of playoff success.
Two sources familiar with Grandpa Rossy's situation and the team's thinking framed it like this: Ross would be on the short list of ideal candidates to become Joe Maddon's bench coach, but it's also doubtful that the timing will be right for someone who is raising a young family in Florida and has so many off-the-field interests.
No manager has been guaranteed more than two years under current Nationals ownership (since 2006).
Martinez, 53, served as the bench coach under manager Joe Maddon for the past decade, starting with Tampa Bay from 2008 through 2014. A year later, the Cubs won the 2016 World Series title for the team's first championship in 108 years. Two years later, Williams was sacked following a debacle in 2015. Baker was let go after posting 95-win and 97-win seasons, both of which concluded with Game 5 losses in the National League Division Series.
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. But after some early reports a deal was not yet done, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post was first to report a three-year deal for Martinez. It is believed the announcement is only being delayed out of deference to the Series, and MLB's wish that teams avoid major announcements during baseball's showcase. This one likely won't wait that long, though a press conference might.
