Interview Conducted by David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer What does it take to make a great leader? Where does one gain his/her main experience managing people, especially under pressure? Upon whom does one rely as a manager? AngelsWin.com recently had the opportunity to ask these questions to the Angels manager, Mike Scioscia. In a rare opportunity, we asked about how his coaches fit into his organizational structure and how he tries to keep the team focused and loose at the same time. Finally, the Angels are still in the thick of the playoff race. With 10 games left to play, The Angels are only 2.5 games back. Knowing this, though, we asked Mike Scioscia to summarize the season so far. Click below to listen to our interview with Mike Scioscia.

But that's...
