ESPN.com: MLB – Ex-Brewer Yost candidate for Milwaukee post Ned Yost interviewed for the Milwaukee manager’s job yesterday. I’m not a big fan of his, and it’s not much of a job.
Is Cox the greatest manager ever? The Guru, Bill James, says even nicer things about Bobby than I did. (Thanks, Andrew.) I don’t know that I’d say he’s the best manager ever, but I do think Bobby has been wildly underrated. In many ways the manager he most resembles is Joe McCarthy, derided as the … Continue reading “Is Cox the greatest manager”
ajc.com | Braves | Initial offer fails to excite Glavine I don’t expect Tom Glavine to get that big of a contract, but if the Braves really offered a one-year deal at the same rate as last year, they couldn’t expect him to accept it. It borders on an insult. Yes, $8 million, but for … Continue reading “ajc.com | Braves | Initial”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Cardinals at Giants – 10/14/2002 Well, congratulations to the Giants. I was rooting for them.

The record of pitching coaches turned manager is … Continue reading “Alex and JR may be”

It’s entirely possible we’ll never have to see Keith Lockhart in a major league uniform ever again. 8. Alex R. free to spend … Continue reading “Top Ten Good Things About”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Giants at Braves – 10/07/2002 Nothing much to say, really. The Giants got some big hits, the Braves didn’t, and the season’s over. Barry Bonds singled and scored, and later homered, and maybe the vultures will finally leave him alone. Well, for a few days. Kevin Millwood pitched well, … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
The Bullpen: Alex’s Corner By Alex R. Bobby Must Retire As expected, Alex takes exception to my Braves.net column. (And JR did too, in the comments.) Alex actually says he didn’t read the column, so he could just let go with his emotions. He should have, because I address many of his points there. (He’s … Continue reading “The Bullpen: Alex’s Corner By”
