L.A. Angels Manager

THANK GOD FOR DAVID FREESE

L.A. Angels manager Mike Scioscia is PUMPED -- telling TMZ Sports he's fired up about locking up former World Series MVP David Freese 'cause he'll finally stop the bleeding at 3rd base.

Scioscia was at Burbank Airport this weekend when we asked about Friday's big trade -- when the Angels got Freese from the St. Louis Cardinals in a 4-player deal.

It's a huge move for the Halos -- considering they ran through seven 3rd basemen last season ... and finished the year under .500.

"Yeah, we're real excited about it," Mike told us ... "I think [Freese is] gonna fill a big void for us so we're excited."

He added, "We're excited to get started and hopefully have a better year than we did last year."

I wouldn't say it's third base there soscia....pitching is what gives up most of our games. Time and time again, we'll have the lead, and the relief pitchers screw it up constantly. Also, stop getting rid of our good players.
