Mazzone admits he erred leaving Braves

In addition to Cy Maddux, Cy Glavine and Cy Smoltz for the Braves, there was Cy Mazzone, the pitching coach who helped push those other Cys into the city limits of Cooperstown.

Then Cy Mazzone blew it.
He left. He should have stayed with the Braves forever. Instead, he put his splendid 26 years with the organization in his rear-view mirror after the 2005 season by heading to a dysfunctional Baltimore franchise. He joined the coaching staff of then-Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo, his best friend. He also was enticed to leave by the big bucks and the proximity of the team to his hometown in Maryland.
