Dave Martinez threw a fit and got ejected in the eighth inning of today’s Nats game against the Mets. He was upset because Howie Kendrick was called out on a check-swing strike three. He probably did go around, but for Martinez that’s beside the point.
The Nats entered today’s game at 19-30 and they’ve lost four in a row. Martinez’s days as manager could be numbered and this tantrum feels something like a last stand.
