Citi Field bullpens get Cox's approval

NEW YORK -- Braves manager Bobby Cox gets to the ballpark early, very early. So with extra time on Friday afternoon, he strolled across the outfield at Citi Field and visited the repositioned bullpens. The 'pens ran parallel to the outfield fence -- one behind the other -- last year. But after complaints from many parties, the Mets had them turned so that they are perpendicular to the fence.

"From worst to best," was Cox's assessment.
