Cox's gate has well-oiled hinges
Braves manager Bobby Cox was ejected from the first two games of the Phillies series, which means he's now gotten the gate 130 times in his career. That's just one off the alltime record of 131 set by John McGraw. The Braves are currently in Milwaukee for a three-game set, so Bud Selig might get to see a record broken this year after all.
Sadly, none of Cox's dust-ups have been as memorable as this one last summer from Asheville Tourists manager Joe Mikulik, one of the great managerial meltdowns ever. Let's hope Cox has something special planned for the record-breaker.

I think Bobby ought to make a play for first guy with an entire season's worth of ejections. Only 32 more to go!
I love this video! The best part is watching the bat boy try to decide whether or not to pick up the bats that have been thrown. He's not sure if he'll be run over by whatever may come out of the dugout next.
This video is great. As an umpire, I had to laugh my head off at all of the problems he created for the crew.
