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 MLB.com’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.

  • Any reason Kevin Pillar is in CF over Dalton Pompey? Pretty clear range advantage for DP IMO. 10 hours ago
  • #Indians fans - what is going on with Carlos Carrasco early? Diminished velocity or anything today? BABIP issues? Bad luck? Getting hit 1 day ago
  • @KellyChipBer he wasn't even impressive last season outside of 32 inning relief cameo in the bigs 5 days ago
  • Aaron Sanchez should be in the minor leagues right now. Period. 5 days ago
