Bobby Cox’s career is over. After 25 long years in the game, he’s seen his last while wearing a uniform.
He made the postseason an amazing 16 times. During that span 10 different men led his squad in saves. No matter what kind of team the Braves had during his reign, he won. All the while he was one of the greatest players managers who ever lived.
I’m going to miss Bobby. He’s been managing for as long as I’ve loved this game. Over that amount of time, a guy almost seems like family to you. Plus I’ll miss that walk out to the mound in his Depends.
It was a great run, Bobby Cox. This game will never see another like you.
