Regular Amazin' Avenue readers also probably read Ted Berg's newish blog Tedquarters, but if not you should. In the linked post, he discusses Alex Cora and the concept of having "character guys" in the clubhouse. It should be required reading for all Met fans.
The Cora contract situation is more interesting to me than the nonsensical trade and free agent rumors floating around right now. If he is brought back for $2 million I think we can officially say there is no hope for this front office.
