So I took a hiatus of about a week and tried not to think too much about the fact that Bobby Cox’s career as a manager in Atlanta is over. It’s tough to fathom, but it’s a fact and it’s time to move on to the Fredi Gonzalez era. Before we do that though, it’s only fair to give Cox’s career at the helm of the Braves one last look and throw out his final stat lines.
Seasons: 29 (25)
Games: 4508 (3860)
Wins: 2504 (2149)
Losses: 2001 (1709)
Ejections: 158 (3 Postseason)
League Pennants: 5
World Series Championships: 1
League Manager of the Year: 4
So where do we go from here without Bobby? Your guess is as good as mine. A lot of people will agree that a new look for the team and a new perspective from the helm is a good thing after awhile. Fredi won’t be a huge change from having Bobby out there, but there will be some changes here and there that’ll be good for the team.
The time for dwelling on the past is over. We’ll be breaking down the 2010 season over the next few weeks and then it’s time to get ready for 2011.
