Get ready for another year of Mike Scioscia. The longtime big league manager will return to the Los Angeles Angels in 2018, marking his 19th season as the club’s skipper. This coming season will be a contract year for Scioscia, but a contract extension doesn’t look to be in the cards at the moment. General manager Billy Eppler is in the same boat, but both men are reportedly content without having security beyond 2018. The Angels just wrapped up the club’s second straight sub-.500 season, finishing the year 80-82. Los Angeles hung around the American League Wild Card race up until the last two weeks or so of the regular season, but ultimately finished five games behind the Minnesota Twins for the second wild card spot, as did the Kansas City Royals. The Angels finished second in the American League West division to the Houston Astros, who went 101-61. The Angels have not been to the postseason since losing three games to none to the Royals in the 2014 American League Division Series.
