Continued: Souhan: Mientkiewicz is all business as a manager

Mientkiewicz remembers chafing under Kelly’s leadership.

“It’s like when you’re a rookie and you get hazed by veterans,’’ he said. “When you’re a veteran you treat the rookies the same way. It’s the same with managing. I was brought up this way, and it’s not going to be any easier for these guys than it was for me. I didn’t like it coming up, but it probably bought me more years in the big leagues than I ever deserved.’’

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Mientkiewicz back in the Twins’ clubhouse in a year or three.
