    Very impressive work.

    '05 was maybe the best job he has done. Buckweaver's list is great, but it forgets that Raul Mondesi was the opening day RF in '05, Estrada went down for most of the year and was replaced by Brian McCann and Kelly Johnson platooned with Langerhans in left. Chipper was banged up the whole year, so Wilson Betemit and Pete Orr both played over 100 games.
    There were days where Cox threw out a lineup that consisted of five rookies, Julio Franco, Pete Orr, Rafael Furcal and Andruw Jones. And then they would go out and win. Everything he did was a master stroke.

    That Cox could win with Lemke at second...only proves that you can win baseball games without a second baseman.

    Bobby Cox was in diapers when Franco was a rookie.

    He's Marv Levy squared + 1 ring, which he won because that Indians team (with one of the best lineups I've ever seen) was even more poorly constructed for the post-season.
