The Atlanta Braves will have one more year with skipper Bobby Cox after he announced that he will retire following the 2010 season.  Cox made the postseason 14 consecutive seasons and won the World Series in 1995.  He earned four Manager of the Year Awards (’85, ’91, ’04, ’05) and is 4th in MLB history in Wins trailing Tony LaRussa, John McGraw, and Connie Mack.  His playoff appearances are a record, which will likely be tied by Joe Torre as the season wraps up.  Currently he has a 2409-1924 (.556) lifetime record.  He’s 2054-1632 (.557) with the Braves.

He will easily be inducted into the Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible.

    That’s certainly impressive to have only Mack, McGraw, and LaRussa as the only guys in front of you in total wins. The Braves will be in for an interesting 2010 season even more so than before.

    A good manager and a classy guy. Too bad he only won one series.

    Some great managers that have never won one so that’s OK I guess.
