Minnesota Baseball Team Pledges Not To Interview Joe Maddon
In case you were out of town this weekend and are just back to plugging into the baseball world, the best manager available became available. Joe Maddon resigned as manager of the Tampa Bay Rays and is now a free agent. A Minnesota team has announced loud and clear they will not sign the highly regarded manager.
The St. Paul Saints took to Twitter on Friday morning to announce that they will not be signing the two-time American League Manager of the Year. The team also issued a vote of confidence for current manager George Tsamis.
In the other Twin City, the Minnesota Twins still haven’t signed a manager to a deal. It has been reported that the top three finalists have all had second interviews with Terry Ryan. Those candidates again being: Paul Molitor, Torey Lovullo and Doug Mientkiewicz.
No word if the Twins have actually gotten Joe Maddon for an interview. Rumors are that Maddon will eventually end up as the manager of the Chicago Cubs, a team that, if the farm systems prove true, should be competing with the Minnesota Twins in the not so distant future.
Yes, I realize how weird of a sentence that was. It felt weird to type. Ick, optimism.
Currently the Twins are the only MLB team with a managerial opening.
