PAUL MOLITOR RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

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...

Twins Rumors: Paul Molitor the favorite to become new manager?

The Minnesota Twins finished the 2014 season with a record of 70-92, last place in the American League Central. It marked the fourth consecutive season that the Twins won 70 or fewer games. Pitching was a downfall, as the Twins ranked 29th in the Major Leagues in ERA. The poor finish resulted in the firing of Ron Gardenhire, who has managed the Twins since 2002. Could Hall of Famer...

Paul Molitor finished his Hall of Fame career with 3,319 hits, which currently ranks 10th most all time.

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...
