First of all, if he retires from managing, I seriously hope he goes to the front office. He's just as responsible for getting the talent like Smoltz and Glavine as Schuerholtz is. I don't think people realize that up until 1991, Cox was the GM of this team.

That said, I don't think its time for him to go yet. He may have a problem sticking with a certain guy or a lineup for too long, but he still gets the most out of this team most nights. Sheffield came to Atlanta in part because of Bobby Cox. He's a player's manager and that whole clubhouse respects him. I could see this team falling apart if Cox was forcefully removed from his managerial post. I believe that Bobby Cox will step down when the time is right, but at this point I agree with him, it isn't time yet.
