Washington president and general manager Mike Rizzo vehemently rejected the idea of replacing Nationals manager Dave Martinez for the newly fired Joe Maddon when asked during an appearance on a local radio station.

“Terrible question, horrible question,” Rizzo said Wednesday morning on 106.7 The Fan. “That is such a radio station/media question – no, we will not do that. Dave Martinez is our manager, he’s a great manager, he’s a World Series championship manager, and he’s the guy to take this team to the next level when we’re prepared to do so – and I think we’re prepared to do so in the new future.”

Maddon, who was in his third season as manager for the Los Angeles Angels, was fired Tuesday amid a 12-game losing streak.

Washington president and general manager Mike Rizzo vehemently rejected the idea of replacing Nationals manager Dave Martinez for the newly fired Joe Maddon when asked during an appearance on a local radio station.

“Terrible question, horrible question,” Rizzo said Wednesday morning on 106.7 The Fan. “That is such a radio station/media question – no, we will not do that. Dave Martinez is our manager, he’s a great manager, he’s a World Series championship manager, and he’s the guy to take this team to the next level when we’re prepared to do so – and I think we’re prepared to do so in the new future.”

Maddon, who was in his third season as manager for the Los Angeles Angels, was fired Tuesday amid a 12-game losing streak.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez and general manager Mike Rizzo watch the pitchers warm up during a spring training workout.
While he ended his tenure with the Angels with a 130-148 record, Maddon led the Chicago Cubs to the 2015 National League Championship Series and was named the National League Manager of the Year. The following year, he led the team to its first World Series title since 1908.

Martinez, in his fifth year as manager, led the Nats to a World Series title in 2019 – the first in franchise history. His team is fifth in the NL East (21-36) and will play the second of a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners today at 6:40 p.m.
