Thoughts Regarding Some Baseball Managers

August 12, 2016

When the Chicago Cubs under Joe Maddon, themselves sans a World Series victory for 106 consecutive seasons, put an exclamation point on what will be the 54th of the Angels’ 55 seasons without a World Series appearance, (they did win it all in 2002 under current manager Mike Scioscia), some thoughts involving Maddon, Scioscia, and other teams came to the surface.

Maddon, as is the case with Dusty Baker, each the current managers of the top 2 N.L. teams record wise at this point, has been successful in the regular season (not as successful as Baker) and unfortunate at best, (not as unfortunate as Baker) in the post-season.

Scioscia considered a great manager at one point, can always point to 2002, but what has he accomplished since that point?

His record as Angels’ manager is a good one, not great. Almost any manager with a similar record would know his “fate,” but the Mike Scioscia “reign,” (certainly not great), with the Angels, seems to go on and on.
