The legacy of Bobby Cox

So yesterday it was announced that Bobby Cox would retire from managing after the 2010 season. He will continue with the team as a consultant. Couple this with the potential retirement of Larry Wayne Jones and it signifies the end of an era in the ATL. But it also begs the question, what will be the legacy of Bobby Cox? Obviously he has had one of the most consistent teams in all of sports. At one point, they had won 14 straight division titles. But only one World Series win to show for it. So will history view Cox as a consistent winner or disappointment? Discuss... and someone get Beth a tissue.

Andy Reid says he is not sure who the backup QB will be for Sunday's game. Stop it. Everyone knows Vick will suit up for the game. There is no way he doesn't use that weapon.

Some Russian reportedly bought the NJ Nets for twice their estimated value. This doesn't seem smart to me. I mean, buying the team might have been smart, but why pay twice the value? Weird.

Brad Lidge is awful. I don't know how the Phillies can keep running him out there. Obviously they want to see if he can regain his form before the postseason. But if he can't, the Phillies' title defense could be in serious jeopardy. We've seen plenty of teams eliminated from the playoffs without a solid stopper. Rev has got to be worried.

That's all I've got today. Trying to figure out weekend plans. Any suggestions?

Personally I think Bobby Cox's legacy should be as a consistent winner and one of the best ever. Obviously the post-season usually didn't work out like he and the fans hoped, but just to get in that position for 14 straight years is mind bottling*

Beth said...

(And just cause these jokes never get old to me...)


Did someone say Cox????

/EP

Beth said...

FYI, Chipper is quoted in today's AJC as saying he may retire when Bobby does, but it will depend on his quality of play in 2010 and on who the Braves get to replace Bobby.

Beth said...

At least after mishandling Glavine and Smoltz at the end of their careers the Braves are getting it right with Bobby.

Beth said...

And that ladies and gentlemen, is your Braves Z.

i don't think he will retire. he has his own legacy to worry about. he'll probably have a say on who they bring in, and he is still playing well.

Ma'am, that was a Braves Natural Z. And not a cheap one either. It might be the best natty I've seen.

good post freak

obviously being in the ATL has infected him with the bobby cox virus

Beth said...

"Yea i'll give you the 4 points."

Then we have a bet. Just realize that if I lose this bet with you and my UGA/ASU bet with as. then the 2 of you will have to fight over who gets me first. :-)

(My money would be on H, don't mess with a rockstar. Plus, keef has shown he's prone to concussions.)

new motto for beth

ToddPacker said...

i always think of bobby cox beating up his wife... i don't even remember if it was true, but i thought his wife claimed that a drunk bobby beat her up

Beth said...

I can live with that motto blue, although it'd be more accurate if it was entitled "Bisexuals" instead of "Lesbians".

Beth said...

"i always think of bobby cox beating up his wife... i don't even remember if it was true, but i thought his wife claimed that a drunk bobby beat her up"

Shhhh, it was true but we in Atlanta like to pretend it wasn't.

Per the bible:
In May 1995, police were called to the home of Bobby and Pamela Cox in northwest Atlanta. Pamela Cox told the police that her husband struck her. Bobby Cox was charged under Georgia's Domestic Violence Act with simple battery. He was accused of punching his wife and pulling her hair. In a court settlement, Pamela Cox was instructed by the judge to attend a battered women's program and Bobby Cox was told to complete violence counseling and an alcohol evaluation. The criminal charges against Bobby Cox were dismissed, and he was not punished by Major League Baseball or the Atlanta Braves for the incident.
