The Meck interviews Bobby Cox.
This is our 9th [ weekly] show with Manager Bobby Cox.
You can listen to any of our previous shows - 24/7. [ Radio Show Page].

Bobby gives us a unique view and insight - as always.
Bobby talks about the current road trip.

Meck: You just left St. Louis .. I remember the 1996 NLCS at St. Lou
visiting in the dugout w/ you about 3p.[ down 3-1] and you told me ..
'We'll come back. We'll win this series.' [ and you did].
You never give up .. do you ?

Bobby: 'Every day is a new game. You need to play 'em like that. All out.'
'We'll do the best we can every single ballgame.'

Meck: You're in the stadium where you played the 97 NLCS [ vs the Marlins].
I was there and saw Denny Neagle pitch a complete game gem.
The Marlins went on to win the World Series as a wildcard.

Bobby: 'There's nothing wrong with winning that wildcard.
The important thing is get in the playoffs.
Look what St. Louis did last year when they got in with 83 wins or so and went on and won the WS.
It's really a crap shoot once you get there.
If the team's hot .. the breaks go your way for a real short period of time .. you can win it.'

'You don't have to have a great record to get in.' - BC

Meck: Can you believe Cincy is only 6 back ?

Bobby talks about the NL Central .. Reds and Cards.
Meck: The Red Sox got in as a wildcard and won the WS?
Meck: Skipper .. I believe the reason I like baseball so much .. it's a lot like life ..
ups and downs. You can't ever give up ?
Bobby: 'Our guys care about the game and winning.
We absolutely haven't given up.' 'We're in it.'

How's Andruw and Chipper doing ?

Meck: Have you ever seen [as a mgr] anything like what happen to Edgar Renteria
[re-injured in his first AB] and back on the DL ?
Bobby: 'He did everything possible that a player can on the practice field.'

'We went through that with [ Pitcher] remember John Thomson .. he had that finger.
We counted on him starting one of those games in the playoffs against Houston.
He lasted I think one batter and it blew up on him.
You're always careful .. but you never know.'

How's Chuck James ?
Bobby: 'He should start around the 1st of Sept.'

Meck: I heard Joe Simpson say [recently]: ' Jo Jo Reyes just
needs to Trust His Stuff.'
It seems like to me yesterday in St. Lou .. Jo Jo said to himself ..' I just belong here.'
He didn't walk anybody ?

Bobby: 'He didn't walk anybody.'
'He had a lot more strikes than balls thrown.' 'This kid's tough.'
'He doesn't scare. Just because he had walked some guys before ..
Doesn't mean he was nibbling at the plate. He was trying to throw strikes.'
'I like the kid a lot. He figures in big for next year.'

Meck: Manny Acosta has been great in mid relief .. [7.2 inns. - 0 ER]
Bobby: 'He's been absolutely perfection here.
Keeping the ball down extremely well.'
'Wait till you meet this kid, Meck.
You'll never meet a better kid than this guy.'
Meck: Ron Mahay [ 13 inns - only 3 earned runs]. He really throws strikes.
[ He reminds me of Graeme Lloyd - Yankees long reliever during the 90's].

Bobby: 'He's good against RH hitters too.' 'Not just a situation pitcher.'

Meck: How tough was it for you to let Wickman go?

Meck: Looks like Andruw's on pace to get 30 HR's and 110 RBI's ..
[as we discussed 6 weeks ago].
Bobby: 'Yeah .. He's gonna hit close to 30 and drive in right at 100 .. as he always does.'
'Batt. Avg. is down. His Defense is as Good as Ever. Basically .. It's the same Andruw.'
Meck: Aug. 27, 1996 .. [11 years ago today]
Denny Neagle [Pirates] pitched 8 strong innings vs. the Braves.
The next day the Braves acquired Neagle on the waiver wire for Jason Schmidt.
I keep hoping the Braves find a starting pitcher by Aug. 31..?

Bobby: 'It's not that the front office isn't trying. They are.'
'The fact is .. there's not a lot of quality ones out there like the Neagles.'
'There's so many teams that are in the wildcard chase.
Nobody's willing to give up any of their pitchers. '
'It's a very small market for that type of guy we're looking for.'
Meck: Michael Vick pled guilty today. Your thoughts ?
Bobby: 'I can't imagine anybody hanging dogs .. or drowning them .. or electrocuting them.'
I just can't comprehend that.'

'We're in the business [ my charity is] to fix dogs up and bring 'em back to life
and get 'em a home.' - BC

Meck: It only takes One Hundred Dollars to rescue and repair a dog ?
Bobby: 'We feed 'em for a good while .. and all the surgery that some require and medicine.
That's the number we came up with.'
'They're well worth it .. That's for sure.'

Meck: Sep. 9th is 'Bobby Cox Paws BeCause' - 'Bark in the Park' day.
Bobby: 'Yes we are .. at the ballpark. Part of that money goes to the Homeless Pets Foundation.
We're very proud of that. Every little dollar helps.'
