MLB Rumors: Will Toronto Blue Jays Hire Bobby Cox As Manager?

MLB Rumors: Will Toronto Blue Jays Hire Bobby Cox As Manager?

Hyped by on November 14, 2012 Website:

After acquiring almost every remaining talented player from the Miami Marlins in one of the most despicable trades in Major League Baseball history, the Toronto Blue Jays are still seeking a manager. While they now feel as if they have the pieces in place to make a World Series run as early as 2013, they would prefer to hire a manager with big league experience. That led them to reach out to Bobby Cox, to see if the retired 71-year-old would have any interest in coming out of his brief two year retirement to manager the Blue Jays for at least one or two seasons.

At this point, it should be considered a long shot. Cox retired from Atlanta because he felt the time was right. It was not because the Braves were not a contender, as that could not have been further from the truth. Atlanta made the playoffs in Cox’s final year managing the team. But he had said all season that 2012 would be his final year managing.
