ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) For 3 1/2 years, general manager Jerry Dipoto and manager Mike Scioscia managed to survive disputes and reconciliations in their arranged marriage with the Los Angeles Angels.
When that relationship abruptly ended Wednesday, Scioscia and the Angels insisted the longest-tenured manager in baseball wasn't to blame.
Dipoto resigned, walking out on the Angels a month before the trade deadline. Former general manager Bill Stoneman will take over as the interim GM for the rest of the season, the Angels announced during their 3-1 loss to the New York Yankees.
