Twins Expressing Interest In David Ross For Manager Job

The return of Grandpa Rossy?!

Minnesota Twins manager Paul Monitor was sacked on Tuesday and now the Twins are interested in potentially interviewing hitting coach James Rowson, MLB Network's Mark DeRosa, and ESPN commentator David Ross.

The Twins just parted ways with manager Paul Molitor after a disappointing season to follow up a Wild Card berth past year, so clearly they want a significant change in culture if they're looking at Ross.

The Twins have already interviewed hitting coach James Rowson, the Star Tribune reported, and they're also interested in interviewing Mark DeRosa, who played for the Cubs in 2007 and 2008 amid a 16-year playing career. Lauded for his veteran leadership, the catcher was a catalyst in the Cubs' rise to one of the elite teams in the Major League Baseball, playing a critical role in the team's 2016 World Series championship team.

After the World Series, Ross found national stardom when he took part in ABC's "Dancing With the Stars". The fourth, Craig Counsell, was, like Ross, a broadcaster and a front office special assistant before becoming a manager. Perhaps to Twins will make him apart of the on-field action again.
