I agree here, Bucs. He's still top-flite. Managers are not like players where they have a prime, his knowledge of the game stays intact.think he's still one of the top 5 managers in the game...
so my answer would be -0-
how long has he been with the Braves? that is your answer
THE MOST OVERRATED MANAGER IN MLB HISTORY!
to have the pitchig staff he did and to win ONLY ONE World Series is pathetic. the ONLY WS he won was when he was up against a BIGGER DUNDERHEAD than him - Mike Hargrove. every other time he was up against someone better than him - and he lost
I would have led the Braves to more than one WS title in this time
Bobby Cox - OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAATED!
not really a "prime" for managers. he is still a very knowledgeable guy and a very good manager.
can't fault him for the team he has right now. he just doesn't have a very good team and its not his fault they will miss the playoffs. i would love cox to be on the yanks. only guy id for sure put over him as the top manager in baseball is torre, and probably cito gaston/terry francona also. cox is top 5 though.
i can't believe through all those years no one hired cito gaston. all he did was win in toronto. a great teacher of hitting, and another guy that isnt over-the-top with emotions like ozzie guillen..
stick to critiquing whores. you know less than nothing. managers do not win world series' and the fact the braves had the amazing consistent run they did is a TESTAMENT to the good job that Bobby Cox has done. Youre one of those annoying "can't win the big one" chumps who has probably never even played wiffleball.... If you were the Braves manager, it wouldve been the first time in team sport history that players murdered their leader. :hangt

Bobby Cox is one of the all time best...no-brainer...
Better question is how does Wedge and Acta keep their jobs...
Some of you guys blasting Cox never had a prime...
