Twelve games in, really, no one should be stressed at this point. However, as most of us would agree, Scioscia has been faltering a bit in his decision making over the past couple of years. There seems to be some chips in the armor. One can't help but wonder if his success had less to do with him and maybe something else. Like the coaches he surrounded himself with. Or maybe just a really good, core group of players. Or maybe luck.
As everyone should know, Scioscia is signed to be the Angels manager for a loooooooooooong time. Through 2018 to be exact. Still, a manager can be fired. And the question arises: How long is Scioscia's leash right now having missed the playoffs for two years in a row?
Now he's off to bad 2012. At the very minimum, Scioscia's leash extends deep into summer. However, likely it's longer. But what if the Angels don't make the playoffs this year? What if they having a losing record? The possibility of firing Scioscia has to be discussed right? RIGHT??
So I put the question to YOU, the community of Halos Heaven. Let's pretend everything goes wrong this year. Losing record, no playoffs, Trumbo gets 100 ABs, the WORKS. Will The Soth be shown the door? Would it happen before the season's out? Will Jerry and Co. keep their faith and give him yet another year?
Let us speculate!
