The New York Mets are certainly no stranger to Bobby Cox. The Atlanta Braves' skipper has managed to win 192 of 352 games played against the Mets. Tonight will be the last time the Mets start a series against the Braves with Cox as their manager as he will not return for the 2011 season.

He begun managing in the New York Yankees farm system back in 1971. He finally made his way to the big leagues in 1978 as the Braves head coach. 

In 1982 Cox would become manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. He spent four years there and during his final year in 1985 he led the Blue Jays to first place in the AL East. In the ALCS the Blue Jays let a 3-1 series lead over the Kansas City Royals slip away. After that the Blue Jays decided to let him go as their manager.
