UPDATE, 10.19.05: According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Leo says “thanks, but no thanks” to Steinbrenner. But it seems like a good fit – and a distinct possibility in Baltimore.

Seems The Boss wants to add some more high-priced talent to his lineup. This time he’s trying to pry Leo Mazzone’s talents away from Bobby Cox’s side in the Braves’ dugout.

Leo’s agent says Leo is loyal to Bobby Cox, “like a father.” I don’t know, though.

Maybe a better solution would be for Bobby Cox to retire or head back upstairs. And entice Joe Torre to return to Atlanta. Then Leo can stay and work with Torre. Just a thought…
