At the halfway point of the 2015 major league baseball season, it's clear that things have been notably different with Paul Molitor at the helm. Ron Gardenhire was given a tough deck of cards to play with the past few years, but Molitor has innovated early, and it's been a welcome addition to the organization.
After being named the next Twins skipper, many suggested that Minnesota was once again going with the easy, internal option. Sticking to the "Twins Way," choosing Molitor would allow Ryan to continue many of the same practices he had always had. While some candidates were considered from outside of the organization, it was always believed to be Paul's spot to lose. So far, it has been absolutely the right choice.
