2) Mike Scioscia
Mike Scioscia would be one of the more conservative options for the Yankees to manage, but he might be a great option.
Scioscia, who turns 64 in November, managed the Los Angeles Angels from 2000 through 2018. He made it to the postseason seven times as their manager, including winning the World Series in 2002. He has managed since as he managed Team USA in 2020 Olympics when they were played in 2021.
Scioscia is a native of the Philadelphia area so he is relatively close to New York and he obviously has the experience and he also has managed in a big market, which is key.
3) Joe Maddon
Joe Maddon was relieved of his duties managing the Angels this season as well after a big losing skid. However, he still has what it takes to manage a team like the Yankees.
Maddon, who turns 69 in February, would be one of the oldest managers in the game. However, in his 17 full seasons of managing, his teams have made the postseason eight times. From 2008 through 2019 (managing Tampa Bay and the Cubs), his teams averaged 92 wins per season and made it to the World Series twice, including winning it in 2016 with the Cubs.
Things didn’t work out with the Angels but after Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani, the Angels had virtually no talent on their rosters.
