Late Saturday night, after the Angels fell to Corey Kluber and the Indians, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported some shocking, although perhaps not unexpected, news:

Mike Scioscia, who has been the manager of the Angels since 2000, is expected to step down at the end of the season. He led the Angels to their first World Series title in 2002 and has compiled a lifetime managerial record of 1,599-1,371.

The news comes at a crossroads in the Angels franchise, who are trying to compete, rebuild, and woo Mike Trout to sign a long-term deal at the same time.

It is unknown who will replace Scioscia.

Let the cheering, reminiscing, or bemoaning begin. Have at it.
