Cora with the Red Sox.  Ray Knight may have been a consideration but there was some assault and battery charge from this weekend.
Farrell maybe.

I'm pretty sure it's Dave Martinez' job to lose at this point.  Of course I said the same thing about Bud Black and the Nats still managed to screw that up.   After the job he's done in CO, Nats fans have to wonder where they'd be today under Bud Black.

They would have been Wild Card Game losers?

Any manager that takes a team from 75-87 to 87-75 in MLB's toughest division, with a payroll $60m less than the Nats, probably would have gotten the Nats out of the first round the last two years.

Given the nats failures in the postseason include many managers I dont think it at all credible to think Black would have done better...but I realize smackie wants to prove himself right without any proof of course

How many times did black make world series as mgr vs say dusty anyways?

Yep.  And they should.  All he did was take that mediocre Yankees team to the ALCS....

Mike Maddux jumped ship to the Cardinals.  Must not have faith or saw the writing on the wall?

So thus far we've had three of the eight divisional series managers fired, and one pitching coach.

When do we get to start firing underperforming players?

Fun Fact: Matt Williams, Bud Black, Dusty Baker and Dave Martinez were all members of the 1993 San Francisco Giants.

Weiters exercised his option.  Not sure if I'm surprised or not.  Usually Boras clients don't do that, but then again, he only hit .225 last season so his options were limited.
