The Los Angeles Angels have fired manager Joe Maddon

While the record of the Los Angeles Angels may not seem that bad at 27-29, they’ve lost 12 consecutive games. And it was enough to cost manager Joe Maddon his job.

The team announced this afternoon that Maddon has been relieved of his duties, with Phil Nevin taking over as interim manager for the time being.

“The Angels have relieved Joe Maddon of his duties as Angels manager today,” the statement reads.

Things started well enough this season, as the Angels began the year with a 27-17 start, their best 44-game beginning to a season since 2015.
