Not many managers have put a stamp on their team like Mike Scioscia — in a league of teams with guys standing around waiting for a three-run homer, the Angels get out and run. They look like a National League team.
And they will continue for a few more years if Tim Brown at Yahoo is to be believed.
Scioscia’s current deal runs through 2009, with a club option for 2010, for about $2 million per season. The extension is believed to carry him through at least 2015.
It’s a smart move by Anaheim. The Angels have won the West four of the last five years, and Scioscia brought franchise its only World Series n 2002.
Remember when Scioscia was a manager in the Dodger minor league system but the Fred Clair regime kept moving him down the ladder until he left and went to that team down the 5 Freeway. How’d that work out for you, Dodgers?
