Cora Close To Returning

Mets backup turned starting SS, Alex Cora, is close to a contract agreement with the Mets. It is believed that Cora will have a one year deal with a vesting option, and earn $2M for 2010.

I have no problem with Cora coming back, but I believe, along with MLB Trade Rumors, that they could have filled the role more cost efficiently.

My heart nostalgically would love to see Edgardo Alfonzo return for a nice swan-song , but if it is not meant to be, I have no problem with the Mets bringing Cora back.

Cora is a good leader, and should be a positive influence on an aloof Jose Reyes.

Cora is valuable but not worth 2M . His obp went down 50 points last year. He should have been given 1M max..
