Could Bobby Cox Be Next Blue Jays Manager?

Could a familiar (very) face be returning to manage the newly revamped Toronto Blue Jays?  Former Blue Jays and long time Atlanta Braves skipper Bobby Cox has been the latest managerial candidate making the rounds in the Jays manager search rumour mill.

As per MLB trade rumours:

  • Before the trade took place, a person with Blue Jays reached out to longtime Braves manager and former Toronto manager Bobby Cox to determine his interest in returning to the Blue Jays, Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reports.
  • The Blue Jays called right after their opening emerged and heard that Cox wasn’t interested, David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (on Twitter). Cox told’s Mark Bowman that he plans to stay retired. “I really don’t know what else to say,” Cox said.

Forget Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes or Mark Buehrle – Bobby Cox would’ve been the biggest offseason addition!  This obviously has essentially zero chance of happening, but it was fun to recall the good old days a bit.

  • @MurphyBruno ya maybe but "work" is different than minor league game innings, let alone major league innings. I wouldn't risk it. 23 minutes ago
  • My piece earlier on Stroman & Hutchison's 2014 innings - they each have about 5-8 starts left... #bluejays 30 minutes ago
  • If we can't beat this version of the Yankees then Blue Jays don't deserve a shot at the playoffs. Not exactly rolling out studs on mound. 1 hour ago
  • Wish Jays added SP/RP but if fans are really worried that the Yankees got 'better' because they added shitty S.Drew than we must really suck 1 hour ago
  • #BlueJays Could Risk Future By Not Addressing Present - How many innings do Stroman/Hutch have left? Not many... 2 hours ago
