    It depends on if they use someone under Bobby that has learned from him.

    Cox has had some incredible talent come his way. Some of the pennants won by the Braves could have been achieved with pretty much any decent manager. But, he is the guy who writes the line-up cards, so I give him credit for being a good manager---just maybe not a great one.

    I am not saying that Bobby Cox was the best manager around, but he was pretty damn good at making moves, dealing with injuries, and he hung on to Leo Mazzone who was one of the best pitching coaches in the game for many years. I would say he was in the upper crust. The only manager who got more out of his players, IMO was Tony LaRussa who has always had the best pitching coach in baseball on his staff in Dave Duncan.

    His wife went into the barber shop looking for him once. She asked, "Bob Cox here?" The barber replied, "No just shaves and haircuts."
