Let the speculation soar. According to Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press according to a source with direct knowledge, Hall of Famer Paul Molitor will be meeting with Terry Ryan once again on Tuesday about the managerial opening.
It’s not a shocker, but it is big news. The second meeting for Molitor is the first second meeting that we know of. As managerial candidates fall off the big board, it zooms in focus on the Minnesota boy.
The 58-year-old finished his Hall of Fame career with the Minnesota Twins. Molitor played in the league for 21-years. His accolades are well-known, but here’s a reminder that he got 3,000 hits and his 3,000th was a really cool moment.
Molitor has been a part of the Twins organization for a long time, but this past season was the first that Molitor was with the big league team in the dugout on a day in, day out basis. Molitor this past season oversaw baserunning, bunting, infield instruction, positioning and assisted with in-game strategy.
The favorite for the job gets the first call back. Let the show begin.
