They introduced new general manager Billy Eppler on Monday, the same day manager Mike Scioscia confirmed that he will be returning to the team in 2016 rather than exercising an opt-out in his contract.

Halo Headlines: Eppler introduced, Moreno willing to exceed luxury tax

The Story: Angels introduce Billy Eppler as new GM MWAH Says: We’ll have a more meaty breakdown of Eppler’s quotes later today.

That time Mike Scioscia sat on his hands

In the middle of the season, it's just another at-bat. It's the fifth inning and the Angels' young starting pitcher, a pretty hot prospect actually, had struggled to locate his pitches in the fourth. But he'd escaped the jam and his team was still ahead 1-0. But now it's the fifth and the left-handed rookie is struggling again. He's given up a single and a walk and a double and another...
