I do not think Bobby Cox gets near as much credit as he deserves. During the Atlanta Braves run over the last 16 years (excluding last year), we are all told that the pitchers did all the work. Or maybe it was the pitching coach. Regardless of the changing faces of the Braves (and a certain departed pitching coach), Bobby Cox keeps on winning.
Last night’s 9-2 victory over Pittsburgh was Cox’s 2,195 victory of his 27-year career (23 with the Braves), good for fourth overall on the all time list. Congratulations are certainly in order.
