For months now there’s been speculation about whether the Angels will fire general manager Jerry Dipoto and/or manager Mike Scioscia, with the assumption being that Dipoto was the more likely to go.
When asked about his job status yesterday Dipoto declined to answer, telling Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times: “I’m not going to get into it. I don’t want to have this conversation.”
Dipoto has one year remaining on his contract, but that’s nothing compared to the five years and $27 million left on Scioscia’s deal. DiGiovanna writes that “Dipoto is more vulnerable than Scioscia” and a decision from owner Arte Moreno is expected early next week.
