Cox's Successor

Hey Chop Bloggers

I'm looking into a piece on Bobby Cox and the legacy he is going to leave when he makes that dreaded departure from the Brave dugout. As passionate fans, we all love Bobby and the work he has done over the past 2 decades and in the late 70s and early 80s. He's won 4 Manager of the Year honors and has a higher winning percentage than La Russa, Torre and Piniella (although he'll probably be recognized for those 151+ ejections.) He was a part of 14 consecutive divisional titles and he and Leo developed Glavine, Smoltz and Mad Dog into the most dominant pitching trio in history and saw them divide 6 Cy Young awards in the 90s. Now, I recognize all of these great feats, not to play on your emotions and take you back to the glory days, but to display the legacy the next manager will have to follow.

My questions to the bloggers are this, "Who do you think the next manager should be?" Will it be a familiar face that will carry on the Braves tradition or an outsider that will reshape the organization? Is he a big name or a low budget substitute while Cox is still advising on the operations stage? I have heard some names thrown around in backroom conversation but I wanted to hear who you guys think it is?

Try to be intelligent about your answers.    -AJCbeat
