With only four games remaining in the 2010 campaign, venerable manager Bobby Cox is making his last push for the postseason.
We all know that...and knew (or hoped) that this would be the case from the first side-sessions down at the Disney Wild World of Sports Complex in Orlando.
But, the fact that Cox is in his final stretch brandishing a cap with a fancy "A" is starting to feel "real," if you will.
After all, if the Braves manage to lose grasp of their current Wild Card advantage in the season's final series, No. 6 is gone for good.
Regardless of how you will be soaking in that looming reality (hopefully that "gone for good" stuff hits us, as Braves fans, some time after Game "something" in the World Series as Cox is hoisted onto his team's shoulders in victory), be it with jubilation, anguish, or something in between, there are some things that we are all going to miss about the man who led the Atlanta Braves through their greatest run in franchise history (Boston and Milwaukee included).
