I agree with that, they want stability in management but I can't believe they care about the GM's contract status.

If the Nats hang on for the win tonight Martinez will be tied for second with Baker for total wins as the Nats manager at 192. It will have taken Davey an extra 43 games but he did have a little more post season success. Johnson has 224.

Two outs nobody one with a three run lead in the ninth, three hits and two walks later it's tied. I was ready to turn off the TV for the night. Well maybe we'll walk them off.

No chance that the Nats don't pick up Martinez's contract option for 2021 but I'm hoping that they hold off on extending him beyond next season. He has the World Series, but he also has consecutive 19-31 starts and with a top five payroll he has missed the playoffs two years out of three. He took over a team that had won 95+ games the prior two years and he has not won the division and has a winning percentage of .519 (Williams was .552 and Johnson was .550). I say that the WS buys him one more season, playoffs or he's out.

19-31. Give us four more months!


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Dont yet wanna think about writing off a manager who just won me a World Series 11 mos ago. 2018 is written off (rookie manager). The huge pile of injuries and opt outs this season arent on Martinez, obviously. And he did not have a Top 5 payroll to work with this season -- #11 in MLB, and only 3rd in the NL East. Nats are about $10 mill less than the Phillies & Mets, and only $4 mill ahead of Braves.

At some point, Rizzo and Davey need to assess why every returning player who was healthy regressed this season (with exception of Soto, Turner, Rainey, the catchers, and couple others I'm too lazy too look up).

Well that's why I said to pick up his option, I just don't want him extended beyond his current contract unless the team returns to the playoffs in 2021. A big part of the issue this year was the decision to try to make another run with largely the same roster, but with their age a rebuild was coming.

COTS has the Nats at seventh in the MLB in payroll, I misremembered, thinking that they were in the top five. I think that I had assumed that the team was going to add payroll during spring training, but then Covid hit.

Reports are that Martinez has been extended beyond next season, with NL details yet. Bad move in my opinion, why extend him with one year on his contract? I would have fired him at 19-31 last year so what do I know? But I'm pessimistic about a manager who's teams have started off slow to terrible all three years he's been here.
