Known salaries for MLB managers in 2017. Martinez should have told the Nats to piss off with the incentives and held out for $1 mil per year.

Joe Maddon   Chicago Cubs   $5,000,000
Mike Scioscia   Los Angeles Angels   $5,000,000
Bruce Bochy   San Francisco Giants   $5,000,000
Joe Girardi   New York Yankees   $4,000,000
Buck Showalter   Baltimore Orioles   $3,500,000
Don Mattingly   Miami Marlins   $2,500,000
Dusty Baker   Washington Nationals   $1,750,000
Clint Hurdle   Pittsburgh Pirates   $1,125,000
Terry Collins   New York Mets   $1,000,000
John Gibbons   Toronto Blue Jays    $1,000,000
Kevin Cash   Tampa Bay Rays    $800,000
Mike Matheny   St. Louis Cardinals    $750,000

Well of course a brand new manager in his first gig is not going to make what Mattingly, Bochy and Maddon make.

Also, nothing wrong with an incentive-laden contract, provided that the incentives are fairly realistic. 95 wins is a good goal; it’s lofty but attainable. 115 wins is unattainable. Give him $50k or whatever for every win above 90 or something along those lines and he’ll almost surely make solid money while the team will be protected against spending a fortune on a guy who ends up sucking.
