Contender/Pretender

Today, the Rangers signed Alex Cora.

Submitted without further comment, here are some moves by the (bankrupt) Rangers and (allegedly cash-strapped) Mets since the end of the 2009 season.

Rangers:
Traded Kevin Millwood (owed $12m in 2010) to the Orioles, with $3m, in what amounted to a dump (getting Chris Ray).

Mets:
Retained Luis Castillo (owed $12m from 2010-11).


***

Rangers:
Signed Colby Lewis to a high-reward contract worth $5M guaranteed.

Mets:
Signed non-tender candidate Jeff Francoeur to a contract worth $5M guaranteed.


***

Rangers;
Signed Alex Cora to a minor league contract.

Mets:
Signed Alex Cora to a Major League contract worth $2m guaranteed.

***

Rangers:
Traded Jarrod  Saltalamacchia to the Red Sox instead of carrying three catchers.

Mets:
Reportedly declined offer by Red Sox for Rod Barajas; instead, carry three catchers.
