Mets sign Alex Cora

Alex Cora is finally official, being announced to a one-year, $2 million deal by the Mets. The veteran infielder, 33, can play any where in the infield save catcher.

Cora will give manager Jerry Manuel a quality rest for David Wright and Jose Reyes. I know what most of you are thinking: He’ll most likely spend a lot of time at second base.

Cora hit .270 last year at Boston, so he’s not automatic out.

Said GM Omar Minaya: “You win championships with a 25-man roster.”

  1. Great move.
    Finally a bench guy on the roster who actually can play short stop.
    Reyes will finally be able to get a few days off.

  2. Yeah, I forgot about half the roster being catchers and then not using them for fear of not having any catchers.

    I was thinking of Franco and then Anderson and all these other mostly useless space heaters.
