    Atlanta Braves skipper Bobby Cox is on the verge of tying the all-time record for overall regular-season ejections. Will he be remembered more for his ejections or for his managerial skills?
    Your thoughts.

    He'll be remembered for winning more than anything. Hell, he's about to break John McGraw's record, and what is HE remembered for? Winning.

    Winning. Not sure I ever paid attention to how often he's been ejected. When I think ejections, I think Billy Martin, not Bobby Cox.

    He's like a senile, angry grandfather.

    But I suppose he's a helluva manager, getting the Braves to all those postseasons.

    You'll have a lot of ejections if you've managed since 1979 or whenever he started.

    He's remembered for winning.

    Wasn't there a little domestic trouble between Cox and his wife a few years back? I think his wife may have wanted to eject him.

    Unfortunately, he may be remember for not winning enough when it really mattered most. I don't know if that is fair or right or both but that -- what is it, one world series ring in like 14 trips to the playoffs -- record is going to dog him in the eyes of some.

    Winning division championships.

    I'll remember his waddle to the mound to bring in Charlie Leibrandt to face Kirby Puckett.

    I would think his longevity is what I'll remember him for. Even with all those division titles, you'd think most people would be on the hot seat for not getting over the next hump. That he's stayed on in Atlanta so long is impressive.

    I'm with Red. His consistency and longevity make him stand out. The waddle makes him fun to watch.
     
  12. He'll be remembered for winning the divisions, not winning enough World Series rings, but being able to piece together a team that won. How many times did the year start "This is the year the Braves will fall in the East" and how many times did that not happen?
