Nationals Hire Cubs Bench Coach Dave Martinez To Replace Dusty Baker

Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez has been chosen as the next manager of the Washington Nationals over John Farrell according to multiple reports on Sunday.

Martinez played 16 season as an outfielder in the majors, for the Cubs, Expos, Reds, Giants, White Sox, Rays, Blue Jays, and Braves.

Thunder charter plane dented en route to Chicago, lands safely
A spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Thunder told The Oklahoman newspaper that all of its players, staff and coaches were safe. Kiwi basketball star Steven Adams' plane came out badly in a mid-air incident en route to Chicago in the US.

Ross is only 40 years old and can pretty much write his own job description, whether it's eventually taking the leap as a big-league manager, focusing on broadcasting or pursuing more crossover opportunities in the sports/entertainment worlds. Wade Boggs, a friend and former teammate of Martinez with the Rays, tweeted his congratulations.

Martinez, 53, served as the bench coach under manager Joe Maddon for the past decade, starting with Tampa Bay from 2008 through 2014. Since the Lerner family purchsed the club in 2006, no manager had been guaranteed more than two years, not even established and successful skippers like Baker and Davey Johnson. When Maddon became the Chicago Cubs' skipper before the 2015 season, Martinez followed him there, where together the pair helped lead the Cubs to the 2016 World Series title, the team's first championship in 108 years. He has interviewed for several openings in recent years, including the Nationals job four years ago, but to date has not been selected. 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.
