    Nats Manager Martinez: 'We're Here to Win the World Series'

    First-time manager Dave Martinez knows that the Washington Nationals hired him with one goal in mind.

    Martinez started his new job by speaking repeatedly about winning a World Series.

    Washington general manager Mike Rizzo introduced Martinez at a news conference in the home clubhouse at Nationals Park Thursday.

    The Nationals have never won a postseason series, but Martinez said, “This team doesn't lack much.”

    Martinez has been a bench coach in the big leagues for a decade, most recently with the Chicago Cubs. He also played 16 years in the majors.

    Rizzo calls Martinez a “perfect blend of the old school” with the use of analytical statistics.
