Today’s Question:

Yesterday the Mets put Alex Cora on the DL and recalled Ramon Martinez. He has appeared in 1 World Series. The more info you give about Martinez playing in that World Series, the more points you get. When someone guesses you can then add more information. It can be about stats, team, year, something special he did or something else about him in that World Series.
