Los Angeles Angels Manager Mike Scioscia Could Be the Best in Baseball
Before the month of April even ended there was calling for Mike Scioscia’s head. The longtime skipper of the Los Angeles Angels was directing one of MLB’s highest paid, most star-studded line-ups into the depths of the AL West.
Pundit and fan reasoning ranged from “the players have tuned him out” to “he wants to get fired so he can get the Dodgers’ job.” Everybody following baseball was making a fuss. Except for Scioscia.
The ex-Los Angeles Dodger catcher has only refuted claims that his job was in jeopardy by stating that he‘s not a quitter and has never been a quitter.
What kind of defense is that?! C’mon Mike… give us a sound bite.
Instead of panicking as the sharks circled in the waters, Scioscia kept his team’s issues in-house and now the halos are showing a little heartbeat.
Sure, it’s early in May and a 4-5 record doesn’t mean a team is on fire, but it’s a start.
The rest of the schedule for May is not so difficult that the Angels can’t think they can get themselves back in the race because they can.
There are plenty of veteran contributors like Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton and a couple of the best young guys in the game with Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo wearing Angel red. Ace Jered Weaver will be coming back soon and some of the younger arms are starting to gel.
It’s still okay to be optimistic in Anaheim, if for no other reason than for Mike Scioscia, who despite his long tenure continues to prove he’s the right man for the job.
