MINNEAPOLIS—Shortly after the Twins tapped Derek Falvey and Thad Levine to fix a team that had just lost 103 games, the new executives sat down with Paul Molitor and asked what needed to change. The answer was a bit of a surprise. With better fundamentals and more success late in games, Molitor told them, the Twins would be much better than their 59 wins without dramatic changes. After checking the analytics, Falvey and Levine bought into the message. That's why major league baseball's worst team in 2016 is back nearly intact.
