Let’s just be quite fair right off the bat. I’m not entirely sure devout baseball fans even knew about this.
On Tuesday, ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith was in the midst of talking about the massive and record breaking 12-year, $430 million contract the Los Angeles Angels gave to Mike Trout, when he made a mistake about who was managing the team.
Smith thought long-time Angels manager Mike Scioscia would be on the hot seat after the club gave a massive contract to Trout. He was quickly reminded that he was already gone from the franchise, with Brad Ausmus taking his place.
