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

MASNsports.com - MLB Team News - Washington Nationals

The last rookie manager to lead a team to a World Series title was Bob Brenly with the Diamondbacks in 2001.

Martinez, 53, served as the bench coach under manager Joe Maddon for the past decade, starting with Tampa Bay from 2008 through 2014.

Martinez becomes the seventh full-time manager for the Nats since they moved from Montreal before the 2005 season.

In a conference call earlier in October, Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo called Baker "a Hall of Fame-type manager", but said that the expectations of the team had grown along with their success. Martinez was mainly an outfielder.

Baker was let go a little more than a week ago.

Kaepernick signs $1 million book deal
The meeting will take place 16 days after Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League owners for collusion. Just as players have a right to protest at any venue and for any objective they choose, so, too, does the VFW post, he said.

He has been interviewed by multiple organizations for their managerial positions since 2010, including when he was considered a finalist to replace Davey Johnson with the Nationals in 2013. Two years later, Williams was sacked following a debacle in 2015.

The Nationals then offered the job to Dusty Baker.

In 2015, it was reported that the Nationals were set to offer to the managerial job to former Padres manager Bud Black after the World Series, but that deal fell apart when the two sides could not agree on a salary. He has always been a rumored candidate for a step up to a managerial spot, and Washington will provide that opportunity.

According to reports, Martinez's deal will be for three years, with a club option for a fourth year, and will be announced following the conclusion of the World Series. This one likely won't wait that long, though a press conference might.

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