Mets, Alex Cora Agree To Deal

4:03pm: The AP says an agreement has been reached on a $2MM deal with an additional $1MM in performance bonuses.  A $2MM option for 2011 vests with 80 starts in 2010.

12:17pm: The Mets are close to a one-year deal with a vesting option with infielder Alex Cora, reports WEEI's Rob Bradford.  Bradford believes Cora will again be guaranteed $2MM.  The agreement is pending a physical.

Cora, a Scott Boras client, had his OBP slip from .371 in '08 to .320 this year with increased playing time (308 plate appearances, 599 innings in the field).  With all of the Mets' needs this winter, I'm a little surprised they didn't fill Cora's role more cheaply.
