Unprecedented feat by Scioscia

Extensive research by Angels broadcasters Terry Smith and Jose Mota has uncovered this gem: Mike Scioscia is the first manager in history to send teams to postseason play six times in his first 10 years.

Even more remarkable, Scioscia has now done it six times in eight years, starting with the 2002 run to the World Series championship in his third year at the helm. He also delivered playoff teams in 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008 and this season.

Scioscia also won two World Series as a catcher with the Dodgers, in 1981 and 1988.

Hey Angels fans, I haven’t seen anyone mention the fact that with a win tomorrow, the Angeles will have 900 wins over the past ten seasons under Mike Scioscia. For a team that only had three 90+ win seasons in the previous 39 years, averaging 90 wins per year for a decade is quite an accomplishment. A second World Series ring would fit quite nicely. Go Angels!
