Bobby Cox, a Wise Man

This might sound familiar:

Adam LaRoche surprised everyone in the Braves dugout when he bunted in the ninth inning Sunday -- and this wasn't a pleasant sort of surprise.

With runners at first and second, none out, and the Braves trailing by one run, their leading home-run hitter since the All-Star break decided to bunt.

The results could not have been worse.

"I don't know what the [heck] he's doing," Braves manager Bobby Cox said after LaRoche bunted into a double play that effectively snuffed the Braves' rally in a 4-3 loss against the Florida Marlins at Dolphin Stadium.

Let's hope Bobby mentions that next time he chats with his old buddy Ned Yost.

Hat tip: BTF.
