Nationals, Dave Martinez agree to managerial deal

Nationals, Dave Martinez agree to managerial deal”

The ballclub is expected to tap Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez to take the reigns after parting ways with Dusty Baker.

This is Martinez's first job as a manager. As a first-time manager, Martinez is also about as opposite of Baker as it gets. The Cubs have hired Jim Hickey, who worked with Maddon in Tampa, as their new pitching coach, while hitting coach Chili Davis and third-base coach Brian Butterfield came over from the Boston Red Sox. Martinez has been Maddon's bench coach since 2008.

At least 10 dead in hotel attack in Mogadishu
Witnesses said gunmen stormed Nasa-Hablod hotel after detonating a auto filled with explosives at the entrance. He suffered small injuries on his shoulder and skull from flying glass.

The two sides are finalizing the details of what will be a three-year deal with an option for a fourth, a person familiar with the situation told the Washington Post. The two were together with the Cubs for the past three seasons, including that team's 2016 World Series championship.

Martinez gives the Nationals a different look - a fresher face than Baker or Davey Johnson, but a more relaxed leader than Williams. The Nationals selected Bud Black to replace him but negotiations crumbled and Baker was given the job.

Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani to Talk Terror, Infrastructure With PM Modi Today
Ghani made the request while meeting with India's Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi , the 1TVNews reported. The US-Pakistan relationship has waxed and waned dramatically since Trump took office in January.

The Nationals have yet to win a playoff series since the franchise relocated from Montreal in 2005. After getting so little time off this year, Ross is said to be waiting until after the World Series is over before even considering anything else for next season.

In the Nationals, Martinez will inherit a team with a stellar bullpen, MVP-caliber player Bryce Harper and a strong lineup, but it remains an organization unable to break through the NLDS. 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.
