The Braves are in last place in the NL East and have lost 6 in a row. Manager Bobby Cox, who said this would be his last year as Atlanta's bench boss, needs to be shown the door now, not with a grand sendoff in September at the last Braves home game of the regular season. This team, once a fixture in the post-season, is going nowhere with Cox at the helm. He should be canned because the team isn't responding to their lame duck manager.
There should be absolutely no sentimentality in this case. The team is floundering and you can't let the season go to waste just because you want to keep a once successful skipper. Sad to say it but Bobby Cox must be terminated immediately.
Ok, if you are still reading, I'm just kidding. Cox is a Hall of Fame manager and of course firing him would be insane and a public relations disaster for the Braves. Consider this a lame, late April Fool's joke.
