Word that legendary Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully likely plans to retire following next year's season provides an opportunity for the team's management to do the right thing by Scully -- and fans -- by giving him a proper sendoff, columnist Bill Plaschke writs. "You've got 15 months to plan a way to properly honor the most beloved employee in franchise history," he writes. "More enduring than any player, more impactive than any manager, more intertwined with this city than the color blue, Scully is not only the voice of the team, but its soul."
