Sporting News: Playoff-bound Twins leaned on team-first approach after disappointing trade deadline

The Minnesota Twins, yes the same team that lost 103 games in 2016, have secured a spot in the 2017 postseason.

The Twins are in this position despite a divergence of thought between the front office and the clubhouse at the trade deadline. The organizational hierarchy performed a major pivot by turning its attention to the future after an initial decision to invest in 2017. However, that didn’t prevent the group of players from coming together behind their manager’s team-first approach to push for the present.

“I didn’t get long-winded about [the trade deadline deals],” Twins manager Paul Molitor told Sporting News. “We did have a little talk, but when things like this happen you’ve got to take care of your own business and look at your own situation.”
