New York Mets: Guess Who's Back? [J. Mark English]

Edgardo Alfonzo is a Met once again... Okay maybe not on the major league level, but he has just signed a minor league contract, and will be assigned to Triple-A Norfolk.
"Fonzi" was one of my favorite players with the Mets during their winning run in the late 90's. He was star born out of the Mets system and helped make the Mets a perennial power in the NL East, and eventually being instrumental in their run to the World Series in 2000.
The Mets decided not to resign him after 2002 citing chronic injuries to his back as being one of the reasons. His career has not fair well since leaving Queens. Little chance he'll be back up on the major league level, but hey, you never know.
