Intro

First as manager of the Blue Jays, and later managing the Atlanta Braves, Bobby Cox set a record for most division titles won. Through 2005, his Braves had won a remarkable 14 consecutive division titles, and he earned one with Toronto in 1985. During his years in Atlanta, the Braves won five pennants and a World Series crown in 1995. Cox's teams, often built on power and pitching, won at least 100 games six times, but were disappointing in the post-season, losing 10 of 21 playoff series, and posting a 1-4 mark in the Fall Classic. Despite his Autumn failures, Cox had been named manager of the year four times through 2005, when he won his 1,700th game.
