Braves Bobby Cox #6 going to be retired.

Cox, who retired last year after 29 years as a manager, including 25 with Atlanta, said Wednesday he still watches every Braves game. And the man who was tossed from more games than any manager in baseball history said he still finds himself in an argumentative mood when the calls go against the Braves.

Now there are no umpires around to hear his protests. "Just the wife," Cox said with a laugh.

The Braves will retire his No. 6 before Friday night's game against the Cubs.

Cox, 70, also will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame. He said he is humbled as he prepares for his big day.

"It's as great an honor as a manager or player could ever have, being inducted into the Hall of Fame and having your number retired," Cox told the Associated Press.

Much deserved, they should do the same in Toronto for Cito Gaston.

My personal opinion of best manager of all time, is Casey Stengel.

He was an amazing manager who seemed to care about his team and players.

A great gesture from the Braves to a great manager.

Both Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa could be hall of fame inductees in the same year.
