Scioscia, 53, signed a 10-year, $50 million contract on Jan. 5, 2009, and his deal includes $6 million salaries in each of the final three years, according to a source with knowledge of the details.
Somehow, I missed this.
Mr Sciosica was always great at blocking the plate, which prevented runs from scoring. We didn't know he would be the same as a manager... particularly when it's his own team at bat.
Has a manager's contract ever been voided because he won't do what he's told? I mean, let's say Scioscia goes all "Art Howe as portrayed in Moneyball" and starts playing guys specifically against DiPoto's orders. Can he be fired and the Angels not have to pay his contract? Or can he basically just do whatever he wants?
Yeah, it's hard to see how Scioscia's to blame for the bullpen mess.
He's not responsible for the bums in the bullpen, but he's made, by my count, at least three awful decisions in the last few weeks that have directly led to losses, and I can only think of one game in that span where I thought he deft handling of the bullpen helped win the game.
In an era where almost every manager uses his bullpen the same way, that's a pretty awful record.
Can they void the contract?
a 5-year contract for a manager is fully ####### insane.
