A Record Returns To Atlanta

Forget Number 25* and his (now) 758*, I’m talking about Bobby Cox’s new gold standard of 132 ejections as a manager.

Way to go, Bobby. It fired up the boys last night as they kept pace with the Mets and Phillies.

Is anyone else getting concerned, though. It’s mid August and our post-All-Star surge has never really materialized.

Sure we’ve got Teixeira and we’ve had no trouble scoring runs, but outside of Smotlz and Hudson, name another starter you trust.

And the bullpen is just as questionable, with Wickman looking more and more like David Wells (in physique) every day.

I don’t know about you, but I’m still not sold on the fact that the Braves can pull it together and make the post season. Much like Mulder (Fox, not Mark), I want to believe.

Let me know what you think.

Oh, and if you’re not already a regular reader of Rowland’s Office, become one.

    Why Bobby Cox doesn’t deserve baseball’s all-time ejection record (Slate):

    Hilarious. “X doesn’t deserve Y because the game changed.” Come on, Ortiz, you can do better than that.

    And, go chew them a new one, Bobby.

    “Come on, Ortiz, you can do better than that.”

    I didn’t write the article, ya hayseed.
