If Bobby Cox has anything to say about it, Fredi Gonzalez will manage the Braves for a long time

The Braves held a press conference to announce the firing of Frank Wren. Looks like Fredi Gonzalez doesn’t have to worry about his job. At least if Bobby Cox has anything to say about it:

It’s possible Cox has the ulterior motive of boosting his own legacy as Braves manager by ensuring that an underwhelming successor stays in place for a long time. It worked for Casey Stengel. It’s also possible that Cox has been brainwashed, Manchurian Candidate-style, by the Nationals. Because all I know is that the Nats fans in my Twitter feed were thrilled to hear this.
