PAUL MOLITOR RUMORS & GOSSIP

Minnesota Twins’ Paul Molitor is the first half’s frontrunner for manager of the year

It’ll never work out. Those four words rolled off the tongues of critics following the Minnesota Twins’ hiring of Paul Molitor as manager in November 2014. Why would it? Fans from the Twin Cities had a front row seat as they watched an annual playoff contender disintegrate into the doormat of the American League. This wasn’t the same club that won six division titles in nine...

Twins’ Byron Buxton joins stellar rookie class

This has been The Year of the Rookie in MLB, with many top prospects getting the call up to the majors and providing a jolt of excitement and fresh air to what hasn’t been a terribly exciting 2015 season thus far. (Fans of the Royals or Astros would surely disagree with that. Maybe Nats fans too, thanks to Bryce Harper and Max Scherzer.) Cubs fans have surely enjoyed surging...

WATCH: Torii Hunter strips down during meltdown

Your browser does not support iframes. After striking out on a called third strike by home plate umpire Mark Ripperger, Torii Hunter had a must-see meltdown. Hunter felt the pitch was outside.

The Minnesota Twins and the Molitor machine

Paul Molitor always seemed to be a thorn in the side of the Chicago White Sox. And being a Sox fan, he was therefore a thorn in my side. But Molly was a thorn in the side of every opponent on the ball field. The guy was a machine. You could set your watch by the predictability of his batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. They were always going to be right around...

Twins to limit players' smartphone use on game days

  Taking away cell phones isn’t just a punishment for misbehaving teenagers anymore.   The Minnesota Twins said Friday that they’re going to limit their players’ cell phone time on game days, asking them to shut down their devices 30 minutes before the first pitch. The policy is something former manager Ron Gardenhire tried to start late last season and that...

Twins expected to name Paul Molitor manager

Another managerial vacancy looks to now be filled. In one of the worst kept secrets of the offseason, the Twins are going to name Minnesota legend Paul Molitor as their new manager. A Minnesota native who spent the final three seasons of his Hall of Fame career with the Twins, Molitor was a very obvious choice. His coaching experience isn’t extensive, but he has worked as a...

Molitor reflects on his 'weird' All-Star experiences

Paul Molitor finished his Hall of Fame career with 3,319 hits, which currently ranks 10th most all time. Yet despite Molitor's prowess at the plate for 21 big league seasons, the St. Paul native and current Minnesota Twins coach never had much success in All-Star Games. Molitor has just one All-Star hit on his resume. In fact, most of Molitor's seven All-Star appearances were a bit...

Molitor working to improve Twins' defensive positioning

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Back when Paul Molitor played, some of the most advanced technology that allowed hitters to scout opposing pitchers were VHS tapes. Most of the Twins players he now coaches have likely never used a VCR in their lives. Times have changed, and Molitor is slowly but surely adapting. Molitor was added to the Twins' coaching staff this offseason and will oversee the...
