But the team has fallen off dramatically since its last division title. This will be second losing season in three years for the Braves.
During spring training in 2007, Cox hinted that he might retire at the end of this season. But his outlook had changed when he reported to Florida this year, and he signed a contract extension less than two months after opening day.
"I would be shocked if Bobby wasn't back next year," pitcher Tom Glavine said.
Despite the team's record, Cox feels he's still got plenty to offer from the dugout.
"Everybody is used to winning around here," he said. "But I'm probably better now than I've ever been."
