UPDATED: Sosh now 10-22 postseason record after 2002


Section517

Recommended Posts

2004:  0-3 record  Swept by Boston in ALDS

 

2005:  4-6 record  Beat Yankees 3-2 in ALDS.  Lose to White Sox in 5 games in ALCS.

 

2007:  0-3 record  Swept by Boston yet again in ALDS

 

2008:  1-3 record  Lose to Boston in 4 games in ALDS.  Note:  It was Game 4 when Scioscia should have been fired for the absolute idiotic failed suicide squeeze play.  Arte should have Kiffin'd him at John Wayne Airport.

 

2009:  5-4 record  Sweep Boston in ALDS.  Lose to Yankees in 6 games in ALCS.  It's disgusting that Jeff Mathis is the last Halo with a walkoff hit in the postseason.

 

2014:  Swept by 0-2 record (so far) to the KC Royals.

 

There you have it folks.  Mike's ultimate resume in the postseason after 2002.  

 

His teams most often fold quickly in the playoffs with the exception of 2009.  Even the 2005 Angels folded quickly in the ALCS after Josh Paul's brain fart and Doug Eddings' ridiculous call of the AJ play.

 

How much longer will Arte stand for being b#tchslapped by all the other AL teams in October?

Why are you not counting 2002? Doesn't help prove your point?

 

Some people tend to live in the past.  More power to you.

I see a trend of early exits from the postseason with an occasional ALCS appearance.  

 

Scioscia is the Bobby Cox of the AL.  Actually, he's not even that good.  The Braves at least made the playoffs every year for over a decade.

You can summarize this teams philosophy with Sosh's remarks about Cowgill trying to take 3rd.  Running into outs has been the strategy all year, and tonight we paid the price for it.  

 

As bad as Trout has been, im surprised not one player or coach has gone up to him and said to hit that first pitch strike out of the park.  He got a fastball right over the middle of the plate and somewhat down in his comfort zone.  You cant just sit there and look at that pitch for a strike time after time.  The players deserve equal blame but when you add all these little things up like running into outs and having terrible at bats, some of that has to stem from the manager.  

 

Luckily there is one more game to play.  If no adjustments are made its going to be a sweep.

The fact that Scioscia is inconsistent with his "philosophy" - Why just in 2014 alone...he changes.

Example?

His platooning of players earlier this season...until Kole finally said (it seems) - "Skip. I'm an everyday player. I guess I'll have to hit .600 to show you..."

And he did, and he's been lead off since then...but he would do it until someone has to go on a tear like Kole's.

Remember when he never played Kendrys vs. lefties...even though he's a switch hitter? Like Conger? Like Aybar?

Even when Morales hit two HRs in 1 inning from both sides of the plates...he continued this Lefty-righty crap...except with Josh Hamilton...who he plays against everyone. Especially in the 10th...lefty - lefty match up. Scioscia should have lifted Hamilton...yet the 3-6-3 DP probably still didn't change his mind.

Here's another fresh example:

Bringing in mop up reliever Fernando Salas in the 11th when former closer Jason Grilli is still in the bullpen.  Did someone forget to tell Mike that Grilli was on the playoff roster?

MIke SCREWS THE POOCH yet again.  

 

Tommy FREAKING Lasorda Jr.  He's just like his former manager who constantly choked in the playoffs before catching lightning in a bottle in 1988.

Most people would love to have 21 playoff games in 11 years. 6 playoff appearances in 11 years

boy those 98 wins had to be devastating for the Scio sciatica haters.

2004: 0-3 record Swept by Boston in ALDS

2005: 4-6 record Beat Yankees 3-2 in ALDS. Lose to White Sox in 5 games in ALCS.

2007: 0-3 record Swept by Boston yet again in ALDS

2008: 1-3 record Lose to Boston in 4 games in ALDS. Note: It was Game 4 when Scioscia should have been fired for the absolute idiotic failed suicide squeeze play. Arte should have Kiffin'd him at John Wayne Airport.

12 years a failure? Six of those years he won the division

 

 

If winning the division is good enough for you, then he's doing a great job.  

 

But there comes a point when you need to think, can this guy get us over the hump?  Now I'm not on the fire Scioscia bandwagon.  But it's becoming evident he doesn't have his teams ready to play once the postseason gets here.  And like I've said before, it's not a personnel problem.  It's not the players on the field who just happen to suck when the postseason starts.  Because the teams have all been different over the past 10 years with different pitching staffs, different position players, but the same result.

 

I had a bad feeling once the Angels clinched the division Scioscia was going to allow them to go into cruise mode and just take a break until the postseason.  Why?  Because it's happened so many times in the past.  And it's happening again now.  Since clinching the division, the Angels are 3-9.  But at least they are well rested, right?
