It looks like Braves fans will get to see Bobby Cox getting ejected through at least the end of the 2009 season. Today, Frank Wren confirmed that Bobby has been signed to a one-year contract extension. I have a feeling that Bobby will stay on a year-to-year basis until he’s ready to retire. At least for now we don’t have to speculate if this is the last year for the winningest manager in Braves franchise history.
Cox has 1,926 wins for the Braves (2,281 total) and is in his 23rd year as the Braves’ skipper. He had hinted during the offseason that he may consider hanging it up at the end of this season. I, for one, am very happy to see him sticking around. Let’s get the boys back to the playoffs, Bobby!
