Alex Cora hurt himself, of course

Alex Cora.jpgUh-oh. Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog informs us that Alex Cora injured his back while playing with Criollos de Caguas in the Puerto Rican Winter League last week.



Cora, 34, signed a one-year, $2
million contract with the Mets earlier this month. He batted
.251/.320/.310 with one home run, 18 RBI and 31 runs scored in 217
at-bats in ’09 before undergoing season-ending surgery on both thumbs
in August.




For those keeping score, Cora has a bad back while new catcher Henry Blanco already has a bum shoulder. It will be awful tough to top last year’s calvalcade of injuries, but the Mets are off to a pretty impressive start.

    One more torn ligament and the Mutts can issue their own special edition of the Murphy’s Law calendar in 2010.
    Rotator cuffs. Knee joints. Thumbs. Spinal disks. The Mutts’ DL reads like an Irish farm sunday supper.
