Former Red Sox infielder Alex Cora has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the New York Mets. The 33-year-old Cora played with Boston from July 7, 2005 — when he was traded from Cleveland for infielder Ramon Vazquez — through last season.I like it.
Last season with the Boston Red Sox (whom he played for since partway through 2005), Cora hit .270 / .371 /.349 in 75 games. He played shortstop the majority of those games (69), while also seeing some time at second base.
He's the new Damion Easley, except he's been to the playoffs.
Thanks to Ian from SOX & Dawgs.
