Player's Manager Girardi Uncharacteristically Blunt During Yankees' Latest Losing Streak

Joe Girardi is a relatively calm manager. Bobby Cox can rest easy that his career ejections record is safe, as Girardi has only been ejected 22 times as a manager. Occasionally, the cameras will flash to him after a questionable call on the field and Girardi will be seen shaking his head or pursing his lips. That’s about it, however. He can get excited when he’s trying to get...

The Atlanta Braves and the Big Fly in 2014

Source: Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images North America After recently profiling Andrelton Simmons for fantasy relevance in 2014, I noted that he had a 12% increase in his fly ball rate from 27% to 39% as well as an outlandish 17.8% popup rate, the latter of which led the majors last year.

"I'll Bake Your Glove" - A Bobby Cox Winter Singing Adventure

The story behind this winter singing event. This all happened, one day, on an outing to the crummy place known as Sports Authority which might not be crummy, but this one looked kind of crummy. A friend and I were going in on a purchase for a 6 t-ball set. Because it was for practicing the knuckleball (not for any goal of being in an organized baseball situation, like a team...

It has been three years since Bobby Cox called it a career following the Atlanta Braves’ loss to the San Francisco Giants in the 2010 NLDS, and while Cox has still made several appearances at Turner Field since his retirement, fans of the team and its winningest manager knew it would only be a matter of time before the former Yankees farmhand found his way to Cooperstown. The time...

Hall-bound Bobby Cox: The ideal player's manager

Bobby Cox had only a few rules. Play hard. Be on time. No loud music or (in later years) yapping on cells phones in the clubhouse. That formula carried the longtime Atlanta Braves manager to one of the most successful managing careers in major league history. The 72-year-old Cox, who was unanimously elected to the Hall of Fame on Monday along with fellow retired managers Tony...
