"It's baseball," Scioscia said. "We love it and have a passion for it, so the fact that we're right now not exactly where we want to be doesn't change our approach from today's game or moving forward to where we think we will be by the end of the season. We have a challenge in front of us, but it's something we can accomplish, if we get into our game. So that's our day-to-day focus."
Scioscia also made sure to say that his plan isn't to play young players over veterans right now, because the club's goal is to still win games.
"Guys are on our roster because we feel there's a role for these guys to help us win games," Scioscia said. "We have a pretty good grasp of what guys can do on our roster, so I don't know if anything is going to happen in the last 30 or 40 games that's gonna change our evaluations."
