2009 Postseason Throwdown: Angel Skipper Has Answer for Heartbreaking '86 Loss to Red Sox
|Mike Scioscia fires back.|
Strangely, he is not asked so much about the Angels' mastery of the Sox during the regular season.
The critics have a lot of cannon fire: there were, of course, the losses to Boston in October of 2007 and 2008.
But the Angels' skipper is also being pressed about the most disheartening defeat of all, Game 5 in the 1986 ALCS, which Boston won with Dave Henderson's ninth inning homer.
Fortunately, Scios' has a good comeback for that one . . .
"A lot of our guys weren't even born [in 1986]."
