Mike Scioscia's Not Walking Through That Door

FenwayNation Photo
Scratch one prominently-mentioned Bobby Valentine replacement off the list. Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim, Orange County, California, United States Of America, Planet Earth owner Arte Moreno announced that Mike Scioscia will be returning as manager of his team in 2013no matter what happens for the rest of this year. This is probably a good thing, since Scioscia would not likely fit the emerging "culture" on Yawkey Way. So, that leaves Jim Leyland as the only proven veteran manager who might be available after his high-priced Tigers miss the post-season. And, of course, John Farrell—the only guy in the AL East who has done a worse job than Valentine.
