Bumpy road for Nationals manager leads to ‘beautiful place’

Rough as things were when Washington was 19-31 and people were wondering whether Nationals manager Dave Martinez was in over his head and might get fired, he never wavered. Just as important, neither did the support he received from GM Mike Rizzo and team ownership.

Yanks’ bullpen to be tested after rainout squeezes ALCS

Cardinals implode in 1st inning, swept by Nationals in NLCS

Mike Shildt took the ball from Dakota Hudson and patted him on the back of the neck.

Cards manager apologizes after curse-filled rant goes viral

A curse-filled clubhouse victory speech by St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt that went viral after a player posted it on social media showed a different side to the usually mild-mannered skipper – and while he was sorry Thursday that his colorful language got leaked, he did not feel bad about the gist of his message.

Braves will need time to recover from latest playoff flop

One day later, Brian Snitker had shed his uniform but was still wearing the pain of yet another one-and-done postseason exit for the Atlanta Braves. “It’s going to take me a while to kind of get over this whole thing,” the manager said Thursday.

NLCS surprise: Top 2 teams out, leaving Cards vs Nats

With the top teams out of the mix, it’s on to a most unlikely matchup in the NL Championship Series.
