Wave goodbye to Alex Cora.
The Mets cut their losses Saturday, as they released (very) light-hitting utility infielder Alex Cora.
*does a little dance*
Hitting a cool .207/.265/.278 this season (.234/.299/.298 with the Mets in two years), Cora was making $2 million this season for his un-trackable intangibles. He was due to make another $2 mil. next year if he appeared in 18 more games.
The Mets also demoted Jesus Feliciano.
Taking their place on the team is Fernando Martinez and Ruben Tejada, who will likely get a large bulk of playing time the rest of the year. Also not good news for Luis Castillo.
But all good news for Mets fans.
Adios, Alex. I won’t miss you.
