Former Brewers Hall of Fame player Paul Molitor gets a three year contract extension as the Minnesota Twins’ manager. After losing 103 games in 2016, Molitor went through all of this season in the final year of his contract — raising doubts that new Twins’ executives Thad Levine and Derek Falvey would keep him as they seek to rebuild the ball club. But Molitor led a surge in the final two months of this season in which Minnesota became the first big league team to make the playoffs after dropping 100 games the year before. Minnesota finished 85-77 in the third and final year of Molitor’s initial deal. He was given an extension Monday, less than one week after the Twins lost the American League Wild Card in New York.
