    Bobby Cox

    I hope when he takes out the lineup card or makes a pitching change the umpire crew tosses him out one last time to commemorate the occasion. I loved listening to broadcasts and hearing him yell, "Come on kid," or "let's go Chip."

    He should get himself ejected with 2 outs in the 9th. That would be hilarious.

    It's tough for them because they are still fighting for a playoff spot. If they weren't I think it would be fitting to toss him from the last game

    Re: Bobby Cox

    Braves will wrap the WC up tonight with a win and a Papas loss.

    Would be a heck of a way to close his career, but his last game will be in the post season and I just don't see that happening. Maybe if it was the reg. season.

    I wonder who is going to replace him. He's the only manager I've ever had since I started liking the Braves in '93.

    They'll clinch tonight when they win and SD loses. Tomorrow is the official ceremony before the game. He'll have to wait until Sunday and then give the fans a nice going away present.
