I wanted him among the non-Cora candidates, but Long, Girardi, Farrell, and most of the names had an argument or two in their favor.  I find it interesting that they are reportably giving him a 3 year contract.  If that is the case, then he must have had some leverage in the negotiation. It's a step they have not taken before.  It is comparable to what Cora got from Boston.
