In the wake of Tony Reagins resigning as Angels general manager amid an overall front office housecleaning there’s been a lot written about how manager Mike Scioscia is truly pulling all the personnel strings and any GM would mostly just be a figurehead.
In terms of actually becoming the GM, though, Scioscia has no interest.
When asked yesterday if the Angels would consider Scioscia for the GM opening team president John Carpino replied: “I don’t believe so, but it would probably be a question for Mike, wouldn’t it?”
And so Randy Youngman of the Orange County Register asked Scioscia, who said: “I’m happy with what I’m doing. I have no aspirations to be the GM.” Scioscia also declined to comment on Reagins’ resignation other than to say they always had a good relationship.
Jeff Mathis is set for a raise from his $1.7 million salary via arbitration after hitting .174 in 93 games, so what the Angels do with their starting catcher should show how much influence Scioscia has on the roster.
