Those of us who stuck with our belief in this team are enjoying this moment more than the fakes.

heroics aside, this is a 7 game series so Martinez shouldn't use Ken drick in every game.

Davey has certainly redeemed himself.  I couldn't be more happy to be proved wrong.

You might want to take a few plays off, partner.

in all seriousness, this will be a big topic of conversation after this season though I assume the Nats will do their usual and leave him hanging going into next year.

Without Rendon, with aging pitching, and BP issues this team could win it all or easily finish 4th in the NL East next season. If it's the latter, then all the angst about WHY they gave Davey an extension ensues. Can hear it now!

This isn't college football where coaches have mega buyouts that cripple athletic departments budgets.  If a coach is extended and later needs to be fired...big whoop.  Fire him and give him his couple million.

I'd say last night locked up his extension.  He did something no other Nats manager has done.

I'd think he gets a 2-year extension on top of 2020, keeping him in the fold through at least 2022. The roster will look pretty substantially different then but I think he has the right temperament for a younger team anyways if we end up in that kind of situation (i.e. a rebuild). I think he's done a hell of a job in the postseason so far, he certainly out-managed Roberts last night and in the entire series he navigated some really tough situations (aka we have 2 useable relievers) well.

Davey definitely has grown on me, and not just this post season.  I didn't care for him at all last year, and was still bitter about Dusty not being back and the team taking a big step back.   From the beginning of this year, I started not buying into the narrative that he's an idiot.  His decisions all seem thoughtful, and even if they blew up, they seemed like there was justification for going that way.   He did a much better job of managing for the marathon of a 162 game season than he did last year.   Players seem to like him, and have to say he out-managed Roberts this series.   I think he's learning, is a good fit for the guys on the team currently, and could develop into a pretty good manager.

What the hell do you mean “proved wrong” when we should all be taking credit for helping groom Dave
Martinez into a respectable manager through our constructive criticism.  :cheers:

Let’s go Naaaaaaaaats!!!

I just may have to admit that a manager that is in the dugout and sees these players every day may actually know more about this stuff than I do.  I was screaming to pinch hit for Stras in the 3rd (I thought he was done and likely to give up a huge inning in the 4th or 5th).  Even with our rubbish bullpen, I wanted him out.

Glad Dave went with his experience and understanding of the players over jackasses like me watching on TV.

I like that Davey embraces analytics but isn't a slave to them...he still is "old school" at times in just going with your gut and what your eyes tell you versus always following a spreadsheet.
