Mike Scioscia doesn't expect to have a role in who the Los Angeles Angels hire as their next general manager.
"I don't plan on being part of any selection committee," Scioscia said. "I know the role of a manager in an organization, and I love that part of it. It's not to go pick a GM. I just think, just like any team, you have to be philosophically on the same page, all the way down from ownership to the general manager's seat to the manager to the Minor Leagues and scouting director, everything that's important in fueling your Major League roster. You have to be on the same page."
Jerry Dipoto resigned as GM on July 1, prompting Bill Stoneman to take over in the interim.
Scioscia is in his 16th season as the club's manager and is under contract until 2018.
