The October 1st, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Scioscia wants a more diverse lineup, Trout voted MVP by internet writers and much more...
The Monkey Says: This is an interesting comment from Scioscia who bemoans being too reliant on "batter's box" offense early in the year. I think it gives some real insight into the disconnect between him and Dipoto. Jerry crafted a lineup full of sluggers and has also put an onus on better OBP. Scioscia though always seemed to thrive with a lineup with a lot of baserunning ability that made a lot of contact. I imagine if Scioscia "wins" the power struggle (which we still don't have an answer on), expect guys like Trumbo to be made expendable. Whereas if Dipoto wins, it could Bourjos who gets the boot.
The Monkey Says: The statheads have spoken. It should also be noted that J.B. Shuck got exactly zero votes in their ROY voting. I'm not saying, but I'm just saying.
