Source: Angels pick up Dipoto’s option …

The Angels have picked up the 2016 option on general manager Jerry Dipoto’s contract, a source told MLB.com on Friday.

Dipoto took over after the 2011 season, as a rookie GM, and signed a three-year deal with club options for 2015 and ’16. Dipoto’s 2015 option was exercised early in the 2014 season – though the media wasn’t made aware until September – and a source said his 2016 option was exercised two or three months ago.

An extension beyond 2016 hasn’t been discussed.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia has his own opt out, which allows him to either walk away from his deal after this season or stay until 2018. Scioscia can’t officially make that decision until after the season, though.

Scioscia declined to comment when asked about his contract situation recently, saying only: “There’s always change that comes with time. I’ve gone through them already through 16 years, with just growing as a person, growing as an individual. I love what I do, I love where I am. That’s it.”

Wow, that took long enough!!!

I hope scioscia stays, I’ve heard fans asking for his firing for the last eight years and i don’t think he deserved any of it.

I do, he is a idiot and the most overrated manager in baseball. Oh and did i say he’s burnt out.
