Both Rizzo and Martinez have their contracts expiring at the end of the season, just eight weeks from now as the current standings hold. Pretty easy to guess that Rizzo is holding out for a big raise, after putting together a World Series winner and a team that has made the playoffs more often than not over the past eight years. Although if I'm Mark Lerner I'm thinking that the sky high payroll has played a big part in Rizzo's success. Martinez's agent is also certainly looking for a payday but Davey's record is more mixed. The WS win speaks for itself but the team flopped in 2018 and did not show up ready to play this year.

Every team in MLB is dealing with unique adverse circumstances this season but the Nats appear to be struggling to adjust more than most. Watching the games it seems as though the prevailing thought is that we are the returning WS champs so this shortened season doesn't matter. Hardly the mindset I'd want my ownership group to see as they determine how much they are willing to offer as an extension. Here are some ugly stats from Matt Weyrich:

Nationals’ offensive ranks among the 29 MLB teams with 10+ games played:

Runs - Last
Home runs - Last
Hits - 27th
Walks - Last
OBP - 25th
SLG - 20th
OPS - 21st
fWAR - Last

I checked fielding and pitching stats and the Nats are right at the bottom for fielding percent and in the bottom half for OBA and WHIP while in the middle of the pack for ERA.

The good news is that with eight of 15 NL teams making the playoffs this year it won't take but a little improvement to qualify.

there will be a fan revolt if davey and rizzo leave, and im sure the lerners know that. and so do davey and rizzo. the lerners style is to wait things out. hope they avoid Leonsis' gaffe and dont insult either of them with shitty offers.

Rizzo yes, Martinez no, some fans would be upset but they wouldn't lose fans over it.

The devil known is better than the devil unknown and all that. If they dedicate to having one of the top payrolls every year in baseball, than dont go cheap on a manager and GM with proven track records.

If the Nats see some inside fastballs tonight it could be some blowback from Martinez giving Cabrera a piggy back ride after his second HR. A team that just got crushed doesn't have to look very hard for motivation to be pissed and the Nats have been leading the league in HR routines. Probably inevitable that someones going to throw at them. In a season when brawls are banned what the hell, lets see the benches clear.

the guy had a heart attack last year and he's talked about his worries about being especially vulnerable to covid if he catches it...what the hell is he thinking doing that ?

Hopefully Martinez is like my Dad, heart issues were a wake up call, but they got him on the right meds and diet and 12 years later his heart issues are under control.

In lieu of your User Name, I dont know if you know this, but The Greaseman did hysterical bits on the radio about powerboaters versus sailboaters. It was one of his classic bits. Needless to say, The Greasman was not a fan of sailboats or their owners.

Before the Nats came to town and before I had kids I spent most of my summers on my boat, but I sold it years ago. The name was definitely inspired by the Greaseman bit.

Distinctly remember a portion of this one classic bit he did:

"Sailboater: Oh dear, what a repressed, disciminated class of people they are.....Powerboater: everybody oughtta own one!".
