Cox looks like he could go on forever

When the Braves announced Bobby Cox's contract extension last week, they said that Cox had agreed to manage the team through 2009. But don't bet on Cox retiring after just one more season.

"That retirement, I don't know," Cox said this weekend in Cincinnati. "I've talked to a bunch of guys that retire and play golf. Some of them like it. But you can travel for one year, then you can golf for 16 months, then what do you do? I think of that."

Cox turned 67 two weeks ago, so the retirement talk is natural. Besides, he had said in spring training 2007 that he thought he'd only go through this year.

But a year later he shows no signs of slowing down. Even when the Braves lose a few tough games, as they have this week, he seems as happy to be at the ballpark as ever.

"I love it," he said. "It's a lot of fun. You take the days as they come. With baseball, it's true, that there's always tomorrow."

A few more tomorrows for Cox, it seems. And the Braves players and coaches couldn't be happier.

As for big-league umpires, well, they'll just have to put up with Cox for a while longer. Sure enough, he got ejected from Saturday's game, after the Reds tied the game on a close play in the ninth. It was the third time Cox has been tossed this season, and the 138th of his career -- a career that will go on for a while longer.
