Twins Sign Paul Molitor To Three-Year Extention
It was a great season for Minnesota Twins Baseball, as Minnesota Native Paul Molitor managed the Twins to the postseason for the first time since 2010. The Twins improvement was huge, and it resulted in the Twins signing Molitor to a three-year extension.
The Twins went 85-77 enjoyed their best season since 2010 when the team went 94-68, and Molitor was a big reason that the Twins were able to get the turnaround that they did. The team was gritty and fought to the end of every single game, something that we have not seen recently, and a lot of that has to do with how Molitor managed this ball club.
Molitor is coming back, but the Twins did fire pitching coach Neil Allen, who really didn’t have much to work with in terms of talent, but the new regimen wants to bring in their own guys, and that makes sense, we cannot fault Twins Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey and General Manager Thad Levine for that.
We really can’t fault Falvey and Levine for anything, they have made all the right moves, in my opinion, since taking control of the team this year.
They made another solid move by giving Molitor a three-year deal, and letting him continue to grow the players that are on the roster. This squad is young, and having Molitor groom them is a solid plan going forward.
Molitor works well with the Front Office, and is all in, according to Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press.
Molitor: "I have a lot of faith we're going to be smart and move forward. I'm in. I'm all in on that."

Hopefully the Twins are smart moving forward and get this team some talented arms to go along with a very talented offensive team.
