According to a report from USA TODAY Sports’ Bob Nightengale, the Nationals made Black an offer for just a one-year contract at $1.6 million, and refused to go higher than two years for a deal in negotiations with Black. While $1.6 million is certainly a lot of money, that’s very low for an MLB manager, especially with only one year of job security. For comparison, Don Mattingly just received a four year, $10 million contract from the Miami Marlins. Black understandably didn’t like the terms of the deal, so the Nationals went to their second choice and announced the hire of Baker on Tuesday.
