I mentioned before, but I have a soft spot for Dave Martinez because my late grandfather compared my lefty swing to him when he taught me to switch hit as a kid.  As a manager, I think anybody we hired would easily win the NL East this coming year.  What happens in the postseason?  Well, Dave could make better decisions than previous Nats managers, but it's still up to these same players to make the clutch plays and not choke.  We've had weird, unacceptable mistakes made.  The managers can only do so much.  If they make the plays next time and advance, Dave looks like a genius.
