Angels | Manager frustrated with Josh Hamilton

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 00:26:56 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia has expressed frustration with OF Josh Hamilton, saying he isn't the same player that the Angels signed before the 2013 season. "He's not in the batter's box with the confidence we know he has. He's not attacking the ball like he can. He's working hard to try to find it …but we need him to do what he's capable of doing, or close to that," Scioscia said.

Angels | Using six-man rotation

Sat, 01 Jun 2013 13:04:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia is using a six-man rotation through the end of the team's eight-game homestand, due to the recent returns of SPs Tommy Hanson and Jered Weaver. "I think right now is a good time for it," Scioscia said. "I think it helps the whole group if you can do it periodically. It's like throwing an off day in there."

Angels | Mike Scioscia not on hot seat

Wed, 15 May 2013 12:46:09 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim owner Arte Moreno indicated that manager Mike Scioscia is not on the hot seat despite the team's franchise-worst start to the season. Scioscia has more than $25 million left on his current contract that runs through the 2018 season. "Mike has zero problems, OK?" Moreno told FoxSports.com. "This is his 14th year. Mike goes beyond what he does on the field. He's a good person. He's a good person in the community, a very good baseball guy. You don't have to ask me. You just ask other managers, other baseball people."

Angels | Owner: Mike Scioscia's job safe for now

Wed, 15 May 2013 11:27:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim owner Arte Moreno said the chances that his organization would make an in-season replacement of manager Mike Scioscia are "right now, zero." Scioscia is one of the game's highest-paid skippers and has a deal that runs through 2018, so there is significant disincentive for the owner to fire him, per Jon Paul Morosi. Some observers also believe that Moreno would fear the possibility that the Los Angeles Dodgers may eventually fire Don Mattingly and could then hire Scioscia. The owner of the Angels wants to avoid doing anything that would help a market rival. When asked about the theory, Moreno denied that the scenario would affect his decision.

Fantasy Tip: The Halos clearly need something to change. Perhaps it's not personnel, but they need to figure out what that is soon, or it'll be virtually impossible to compete in a tough AL West. SP Jered Weaver (elbow) may be a boon to the club's awful rotation but won't be back for a few weeks. The dynamic of PT could change, eventually, if the Halos don't pull out of this dive, so fantasy owners should be on alert.

Angels | Prefer Josh Hamilton hitting behind Albert Pujols

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 11:28:15 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia prefers to hit OF Josh Hamilton in the cleanup spot behind 1B Albert Pujols because has the better on-base percentage, and it would make sense for Hamilton to be hitting with Pujols on base. Scioscia doesn't think Hamilton, who saw the fewest percentage of fastballs last year (44.6) percent), will see more fastballs if he was hitting in front of Pujols. "I think it's just a function of how Josh was pitched," Scioscia said. "Sometimes the pitches (hitters) see is not going to be contingent on who's behind him, it's just going to be how guys are trying to pitch to them. And with Josh, I think it was more that case than anything else."
