Nats' Dave Martinez aims to 'face fear like bison' in Year 2

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Among various sheets of paper thumbtacked to the corkboard in Dave Martinez's spring training office - Florida Kitchen Staff, Important Dates, Pitchers Work Groups - there's one in the upper-left corner entitled Face Fear Like Bison.

The Washington Nationals' manager came across its three-sentence message this offseason: "When a storm brews on the horizon, most animals run away from it. But bison instinctively run directly toward storms to minimize the amount of time they're exposed to the elements. So face adversity head-on and power through whatever comes your way."

That, Martinez explained in an interview, captures the way he plans to approach his second season as a major league skipper, which begins when the Nationals host the New York Mets on March 28.
