Madden: HELP WANTED! From the Mets to the Orioles, but who would want these jobs?

Twins Hall of Famer Paul Molitor went from AL Manager of the Year to fired in one year, but it wasn’t his fault Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano, the Twins’ two top homegrown players, were hurt and ineffective all year, or that their two primary offseason free agent signs, Lance Lynn and Logan Morrison, were total busts while trade acquisition Jake Odorizzi (7-10, 4.49) was just mediocre. The Twins, as always, have major pitching issues that figure to doom them to another losing season. Their top prospect, Brusdar Graterol, is at least a year away, and anyone coming in here will be challenged to get this team back in contention, even in a weak division. Indians minor league defensive coach John McDonald has been mentioned as an early candidate but after Molitor and Ron Gardenhire it’s probably a good bet the Twins chief baseball officer Derek Falvey will be inclined to go for a younger, more analytically adoptive manager this time around.
