USAToday: Scioscia Perfect Replacement In Hub

Bob Nightengale of USA Today speculates that Angels skipper Mike Scioscia would be a "perfect" replacement for Bobby Valentine in Boston. As the Halos come to Boston for a three-game set, both managers are in the midst of wildly disappointing seasons. While the NOG has insisted that Bobby V. will survive this season, there's no guarantee they'll keep him on for the second year of his contract. Scioscia is under contract through 2018, but has been under intense pressure for his under-performing star-studded club. Hey, at least it's something interesting to talk about. What would you rather discuss, Nick Punto's OPS?
