Washington Nationals news & notes: Davey Martinez on importance of September + news on a big change in the front office...

Washington’s Nationals are back in last place in the NL East after back-to-back losses to Miami, four straight losses overall, and losses in six of their last seven, so there are no illusions about the reality they are playing out the final weeks of the 2023 campaign.

Davey Martinez explained recently why it’s an important few weeks for both the big league club and the organization as a whole.

“For me it’s all about trying to finish this year really, really well,” Martinez told reporters, “… and understanding that in order to get to the next level, which is the playoffs for us, this month really counts, and I want to see which guys are ready for that, but all in all it’s all about today.
