Stephen A. Smith goofs again, thinks Mike Scioscia still manages Angels

Stephen A Smith

Stephen A. Smith was at it again making yet another mistake that brings his credibility into question.

Smith was interviewing ESPN baseball reporter Jeff Passan for his radio show on Tuesday and talked about the Mike Trout contract. Smith asked Passan whether the big deal for Trout puts more pressure on manager Mike Scioscia.

There’s only one issue: the Angels parted ways with Scioscia and replaced him with Brad Ausmus. Passan had to gently break that to Smith.

That’s a bad look for Smith. Yes, there are plenty of managerial changes that happen each offseason and it’s sometimes hard to keep up with them, but it shows a lack of preparation.

To me, this is a manifestation of someone who is spread too thin being asked to cover subject matters where they’re weak. That’s how we had the embarrassing mistake with Smith and the Chargers during the fall.
