The club is currently 222 games over .500 under Scioscia but it looks like it will miss the playoffs for the 4th straight year, and 8th time in 9 years, after making the playoffs 6 times in Mike's first 10 years. This includes a World Series championship in his 3rd season as manager.

The team is 2 games under .500 at this moment and another losing season will make 3 in a row.
Dusty Baker was fired in Washington after leading the Nats to 2 division titles and Mike Matheny was canned despite posting a winning mark in each of his 7 seasons as head man in St. Louis.
Does Scioscia deserve special treatment given his team's repeated failures despite having the best player in the game today at his disposal?
