@journoshane: Mike Scioscia is the longest tenured manager in baseball. Can you see him parting ways if the team fails to make postseason?
I think that any parting of the ways between the two sides is more likely to stem from the ownership end. If Scioscia voluntarily leaves after this season, he'll effectively be burning $10 million. And if the Angels aren't in the postseason, it's not like he's going to be in particular demand, either. I don't see it.
@AnthonyDiComo: What would happen if Andy McCullough and Nick Piecoro switched pants?
@Beardedgolfpro: How long is C.J. Cron going to get a chance to be terrible?
@OnBaseUnit: I saw someone mention that LAA opponents are hitting better against the shift than not. Is the team committed long-term to shifts?
So I'm not entirely sure.
@DuranSports: legit question. How much does this team use the advanced analytics?
@KevinKLu: mailbag: Angels K rates vs. last year, how that portends to offense going forward?
