MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Paul Molitor says even he was not sure how things were going to go when he walked into a postseason meeting with Minnesota Twins executives Derek Falvey and Thad Levine to discuss his future as manager.
Molitor spoke to the media Tuesday, a day after signing a new three-year contract with his hometown team. Molitor led the Twins to an 85-77 record and the team's first playoff appearance since 2010. It was a dramatic turnaround from a 103-loss season in 2016, which has put Molitor's name in the running for AL manager of the year.
Molitor says he is excited to be back with the Twins for a fourth season.
