Chasing History: Bobby Cox

The excellent A Trivial Pursuit points out something we didn't know: Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox is but eight ejections away from breaking John McGraw's record for lifetime ejections. McGraw was ejected 131 times; Earl Weaver has the AL record with 98. Those are extremely impressive numbers. That's a number we wouldn't have imagined ever falling.

Obviously, we'd love to see the number go up one slot tonight, though, considering Cox's poorly publicized history of having an occasional Brett Myers moment, maybe it's better than he just stay at the park.

Seriously, though: 131 ejections. That's almost an entire season. Go for it, Bobby!
