Braves' Cox earns respect of league

"Well, there are three things that the average man thinks he can do better than anybody else. Build a fire, run a hotel and manage a baseball team."-- Rocky Bridges, 9 time minor league manager ATLANTA -- Bobby Cox's backyard grill doesn't really count as a fire, but 30 years on the road certainly qualifies him as a hotel expert and he knows a thing or two about managing a baseball team. Ask any baseball man to name the game's best managers, and if Cox, the Atlanta Braves' skipper, doesn't top the list, he certainly finishes among the top three.
