Carlos Correa:

latest news at page 1:
    With a battle between players and owners raging on, we shouldn’t lose sight of free agency, and specifically Carlos Correa. Correa is the biggest name remaining on the free agent market, as he was when the offseason began. He was reportedly seeking a contract north of $300 million, which most teams didn’t balk at given a new CBA had yet to be agreed to. Because of a mysterious back injury, Correa’s value may come down after the lockout. Should that be the case, expect teams like the Astros, who previously offered him a five-year contract worth near $160 million, to be back in the mix for their former shortstop. Per Jon Heyman, the Astros and rival Dodgers have emerged as the top two suitors for Correa.

    With Carlos Correa reportedly dealing with an injury, the Houston Astros might be able to negotiate a deal with the talented shortstop. Well, Carlos Correa’s potential value in this free agency market likely took a hit when it was reported that some teams are concerned about an injury that Correa is dealing with. Buster Olney reported that some teams are apparently worried about Correa’s lower back. That will almost certainly impact the sort of offers that Correa will receive, which could conceivably make it more enticing for Correa to return to Houston. “There are questions about his lower back. He has gotten treatment for it…. Teams are saying they can only access his medical records if they make a “significant offer” and teams are hesitant” -Buster Olney on Carlos Correa pic.twitter.com/M2qloHDlrr — Calico Joe (@CalicoJoeMLB) December 4, 2021 Carlos Correa free agency update: Reported injury could help Houston Astros There’s no guarantee Correa will come to an agreement with the Astros, but this news will almost certainly change the way teams approach negotiations with Correa. While he’s talented enough...
    With MLB fans waiting to see where Carlos Correa will end up signing, it turns out a lower back injury has teams hesitant in putting a blockbuster offer on the table.  As it turns out, it might take a little longer for Carlos Correa to shut down his free agency than originally thought. That’s because the superstar shortstop has a concerning injury that teams are worried about? That looks to be the case. According to MLB insider Buster Olney, teams have questions about Correa’s lower back. With Correa expected to land a monster payday with his new deal, it’d make sense why teams won’t jump to offer if he has back issues. So, how will things play out? “There are questions about his lower back. He has gotten treatment for it….

    Could Javy Baez play a role in shortstop Carlos Correa signing with the Chicago Cubs? There will be no free agency signings in MLB for the foreseeable future due to the lockout. That means fans will have to wait a while for shortstop Carlos Correa to make his decision as to where he will play. One of the shortstops to sign prior to the lockout was Javier Baez, who joined the Detroit Tigers on a six-year deal. Could Baez help Correa decide which team to sign with? According to Mike Rodriguez of Univision, Correa reached out to Baez to ask about the treatment of the Chicago Cubs organization. Rodriguez also says that the Cubs and New York Yankees are the two teams most likely to sign Correa. Carlos Correa #cubs y #yankees son los 2 equipos con más probabilidades de firmar al Campo-Corto ya que son las negociaciones más fluyentes por el momento, fuente me confirma que Correa llamo a Báez para preguntarle cómo es el trato de la organización de Chicago #carloscorrea pic.twitter.com/mxu42g60KR — Mike Rodriguez | Univision (@mikedeportes)...
    After signing his monster three-year deal with the Chicago Cubs, Marcus Stroman is wasting no time helping his team in the recruiting department.  Just because the Chicago Cubs dropped more than $70 million on Marcus Stroman, don’t think for a second that the front office isn’t done making big moves. Could they go out and sign star shortstop Carlos Correa to a mega-deal? If it were up to Stroman, he’d no question want the team to go out and land him. As soon as the righty found out that the Cubs were interested in Correa, Stroman wasted no time in shooting his shot on Twitter. Need you in Chicago my dawg! @TeamCJCorrea https://t.co/u70xif0qhv — Marcus Stroman (@STR0) December 2, 2021 Marcus Stroman recruiting Carlos Correa to the Chicago Cubs is awesome Stroman hasn’t even pitched in a game for the Cubs yet and already he’s winning over countless fans. That will happen when you help out the team in trying to land one of the best free agents out there. With Chicago eyeing Correa in free agency, the Cubs would...
    The Detroit Tigers have signed former Chicago Cubs and New York Mets infielder Javy Baez, who is expected to play shortstop in MoTown. Baez slid all over the infield in Queens, in part because the Mets already had a high-caliber shortstop in $300 million man Francisco Lindor. Per numerous reports, the Tigers are inking Baez. Javier Baez has 6-year, $140M deal with Tigers @jonmorosi and @Feinsand 1st — Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) November 30, 2021 While Detroit was rightly connected to Carlos Correa, the Tigers weren’t willing to meet his price point this Winter. So, Al Avila went for the next-best thing, signing Baez to a long-term deal. The Tigers desperately needed a shortstop, considering it’s a glaring need in their infield, and Baez fills that void and brings a big name to Detroit. Baez last made an All-Star team in 2019, but saw a resurgence of sorts after being dealt to the Mets last season, hitting near .300, slashing .299/.371/.515 in 47 games and 186 at-bats.

    Corey Seager has signed with the Texas Rangers while Carlos Correa is still trying to make a deal happen during free agency. Where will Correa land? With Corey Seager signing a massive contract with the Texas Rangers, another high profile shortstop is off the board in this free agency class. That means the market is moving further in Carlos Correa’s favor. Correa has been one of the most intriguing free agents in this class, but there have been several other talented shortstops competing against him for contracts. But Seager is out of the way. The free agency class is smaller. Correa has a little more control over his destiny. So, where might he end up?Carlos Correa free agency: 3 possible teams Carlos Correa could sign withNew York YankeesOf all the teams that are interested in courting Correa, the New York Yankees might be the one that could potentially afford to pay the talented shortstop what he wants. New York fans have been critical of Correa for the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal, but he would almost certainly be an upgrade over the...
    The Texas Rangers ownership group was determined to spend this offseason, and they’ve done just that by signing Corey Seager. In the span of a few days, the Rangers have completely rebuilt their infield, signing Marcus Semien and now Seager. Just as Semien did with the Toronto Blue Jays, he’ll likely played second base, with Seager taking his usual position at shortstop…for now. BREAKING: Star shortstop Corey Seager and the Texas Rangers are in agreement on a 10-year, $325 million deal, sources familiar with the situation tell ESPN. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) November 29, 2021 Seager may have to transition to third base as he ages, but for now he remains a capable shortstop. The Dodgers noted this, and will be moving Trea Turner to short as an interim replacement for Seager. Give the Rangers credit — they’ve backed up all the talk. Texas finished with over 100 losses last season. The front office and ownership deemed that unacceptable, and have spent to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Corey Seager contract details: Rangers spending spree continuesThe Rangers signed Seager,...
    The Tigers were seemingly all-in on Carlos Correa in MLB free agency but the price tag has caused Detroit to shift their focus with the hot stove burning.  From the moment that the Detroit Tigers were considered to be in on one of the biggest fish in MLB free agency, former Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, the organization has been clear that they want the player but not if he’s going to cost them an astronomical amount. Put simply, it appears that Detroit is trying to approach an important offseason for the club by spending big but doing so with some discretion about how much is too much. And apparently, what Correa wants is just far too much for the Tigers to oblige. According to MLB insider Buster Olney, Detroit is shifting their focus to another high-profile shortstop, Javy Baez, in free agency instead of staying laser-focused on Correa. The Tigers had talked to Marcus Semien, Carlos Correa before recently focusing on Javier Baez, who likely will be less expensive than what Correa, Semien seeking. Baez was offered 8/$168m by Cubs...
    Carlos Correa is due to make near $300 million this offseason — or at least those are the numbers his camp is leaking. Should the Astros bite? Thus far, Houston hasn’t been willing to meet those expectations. Jim Crane made several offers to Correa during the regular season, but they either didn’t contain the financial expectations he was seeking or the length of the deal was subpar. Frankly, he can do better on the free agent market. So, expect Correa to head elsewhere, to a team that values his play and can afford to pay him what he’s worth. Carlos Correa rumors: Silence on the Astros frontThe Astros are staying put on their latest contract offer until Correa comes down on his asking price and meets them halfway. Houston’s last known offer was for five years and $160 million. Not signing Correa wouldn’t be the worst option for Houston, especially considering how many available shortstops are on the free agent market. The Astros could let Correa walk, and still sign an elite shortstop such as Trevor Story, Corey Seager, or...
    Noah Syndergaard made it incredibly clear that he didn’t care whatsoever for Carlos Correa’s controversial take on Yankees legend Derek Jeter.  It goes without saying, but free-agent slugger Carlos Correa infuriated countless baseball fans earlier this month. In case you missed it, Correa stunningly came out and said that Derek Jeter didn’t deserve any of his Gold Gloves. Is the man insane? Jeter will go down as one of the best shortstops ever. On top of timely hits, he was a total beast in the field making plays for New York. You know who didn’t care for Correa’s comments? Noah Syndergaard. Despite suiting up for the Mets, Syndergaard isn’t going to let anyone bash Jeter like this. Carlos Correa’s take on Derek Jeter infuriated Noah SyndergaardWhile on with the MLB Network, Syndergaard didn’t hesitate in saying if he could strike out any player in the bigs, it’d no question be Correa. “Not just for the obvious reason, but just what he said about Derek Jeter not deserving his Gold Gloves, I think that was a little ridiculous to say,” Syndergaard said....
    Carlos Correa. Mandatory Credit: Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Houston Astros fans are fully expecting to lose shortstop Carlos Correa this offseason. But him signing with one of these three teams would be heartbreaking for the fanbase. The Houston Astros are in for what will be a very interesting offseason when it comes to shortstop Carlos Correa. With the team unable to reach an agreement with Correa prior to the 2021 season, Correa had a strong campaign, meaning that he will likely cash in on a huge contract in free agency. Sure, the Astros did manage to bring back pitcher Justin Verlander on what could turn into a two-year deal, but losing Correa would be hard for the Astros fanbase to fathom. But the loss could sting even more if he were to sign with one of these three teams.Carlos Correa free agency destinations that would be heartbreaking for Astros fansNew York YankeesImagine being an Astros fans, and watching Correa sign a multi-year deal with the New York Yankees? It would not be a good feeling, right? The Astros and...
    Scooter Gennett took a post-career shot at Carlos Correa about the sign-stealing scandal before the former Astro signs his contract. Correa is due upwards of $300 million by the end of this offseason, and he’s expected to be a very rich man when this is all said and done. But don’t expect former or current players such as Scooter Gennett to let his past transgressions fall by the wayside, even if he doesn’t stay in Houston. The 27-year-old was a prominent member of the 2017 Houston Astros World Series team, which cheated their way to the baseball mountaintop. While it’s unknown — and unlikely — they were the only team to do so, Correa is one of the faces of a scandal that is sure to go down in baseball infamy. So, he’s bound to hear about it until the end of his career. Gennett chimed in with his few seconds of fame. Scooter Gennett calls out Carlos Correa on social media“@mlb about to let a cheater who shouldn’t be playing baseball get a 300 million dollar contract. The big...
    Carlos Correa is arguably the most sought-after free agent of the 2021-22 class, but he has yet to make a decision. So, what’s the latest? Correa slashed .279/.366/.485 with an .850 OPS in 2021, making him one of the best hitting shortstops in baseball. His ability to field his position and on the basepaths makes him a five-tool player, and only ups the asking price this offseason. The former Houston Astro is expected to earn anywhere between $25 million-$30 million this offseason, which is a large chunk of change. He’s just 27 years old as of this writing, so a long-term contract is on the horizon. Correa conveniently won his first Gold Glove just last week. He’s due far more than the Astros were willing to offer him, which is why he turned down their qualifying offer. Carlos Correa Yankees rumorsCorrea has been linked to the Yankees since midseason. New York has a hole at shortstop, and Aaron Boone doesn’t seem to mind that Correa insulted the manager’s former teammate Derek Jeter’s fielding ability just weeks ago, or that he...

    The Houston Astros seem to have given up on re-signing Carlos Correa, given his flirtation with several contenders in free agency. Do they have a backup plan? Correa could receive a deal close to $30 million per season, and up to a five-to-six year contract. That’s…a lot of money, but such is the case when you’re at the top of the shortstop class. MLB teams have a lot of money to spend as they wait for an update on CBA talks. Hell, Noah Syndergaard got $21 million from the Angels on a one-year deal. Correa is due far more than that, and can make a greater everyday impact. Carlos Correa rumors: Astros have replacement in mind?Correa’s market value is just under $27 million per year, and while the Astros aren’t willing to go THAT high, they will spend for a necessary replacement. Houston made the World Series last season for a reason. Moving on from George Springer last offseason was a tough pill to swallow for fans. Doing so again for Correa will be even tougher, but thankfully the shortstop...
    Aaron Judge, New York Yankees. Mandatory Credit: John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees have long been considered a top free agency destination for Carlos Correa but here’s why New York should pass on the shortstop.  If there’s a big-name free agent available in MLB, there’s a good chance that the New York Yankees are going to be involved in some capacity. Such is the case with likely soon-to-be-former-Astros shortstop Carlos Correa. Fresh off helping guide Houston to a World Series appearance, all signs indicate that Correa is as good as packed up and moved out from the Astros organization. And as expected, New York is considered one of the leading contenders to sign the high-profile free agent. That, however, may not be the best idea for the pinstripes. In fact, there are several reasons as to why the Yankees would be better-served to pass on Correa in free agency this offseason.Yankees: 3 reasons New York should avoid Carlos Correa3.

    Free agent shortstop Carlos Correa may have provided a hint about his ideal suitor, though it remains unclear if he was serious. On Monday morning, the Detroit Tigers made the first big move on the free agent market, by convincing pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez to sign in MoTown. E-Rod left Beantown in the dust, signing a five-year deal worth at least $77 million and potentially more with incentives. With Rodriguez signing as the first major addition to Detroit’s roster for the 2022 season, the Tigers are officially major players this Winter. So, what’s next? The Tigers have been linked with Carlos Correa all season, as manager A.J. Hinch has a history with the former Astro in Houston. The two won a World Series together, and by all accounts would be interested in doing so again in Detroit — for the right price, of course. MLB rumors: Did Carlos Correa hint at free agency decision?Michael Balko of ESPN claimed an MLB insider called Correa to Detroit a ‘done deal,’ though we don’t know much more than that. He also linked this screenshot,...
    Free agent shortstop Carlos Correa does not have any mention of the Houston Astros on his Twitter bio. The MLB offseason has begun, and baseball fans will be keeping an eye on where the top free agents will sign prior to the 2022 campaign. One player that is going to garner plenty of attention is shortstop Carlos Correa, who will be garnering plenty of attention from prospective teams. After spending the entirety of his career with the Houston Astros, he is now looking to cash in on a huge contract.

View the original article to see embedded media.Carlos Correa has been enemy No. 1 in the Bronx since October 2017, though he very well could be donning pinstripes on Opening Day next season. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman acknowledged on Thursday that Correa is among the shortstops New York is considering in free agency, joining Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager and Trevor Story of the Rockies. Cashman added the Yankees have spoken with the representatives for "most, but not all" of the best available shortstops, per SNY.  The potential pursuit of Correa brings more than pure production concerns. The Astros were issued a historic punishment in January 2020 for an electronic sign-stealing scandal in 2017 and 2018, the first year of which resulted in Houston's lone championship. The Astros claimed the American League pennant in 2019 and 2021,...

Now, the elite shortstop will be hitting the free agency market this offseason, which has MLB fans clamoring to see where Correa will head next. Although Correa has teased fans with some direction, telling a Mets fan he likes pinstripes but not blue and orange, the truth is that Correa could land in a number of different places.

    The Houston Astros are likely to lose Carlos Correa to free agency. Could Clayton Kershaw be a target for the AL pennant-holders this offseason? The Houston Astros are bracing for the offseason, where they are likely going to lose star shortstop Carlos Correa to free agency. In a last ditch effort, the team reportedly offered Correa a five-year, $160 million contract, and it is unlikely that he will accept it, especially when you look at Francisco Lindor’s deal with the New York Mets. If Correa is to sign elsewhere this hot stove season, the Astros will have a ton of money left to spend on free agents. Should one of those be Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw? And would the left-handed pitcher accept a deal from Houston?Could the Astros sign Clayton Kershaw?The answer to that question is yes.

    Carlos Correa probably won’t accept the offer the Houston Astros just made him because he’ll almost certainly receive better offers elsewhere.  There’s a very strong argument to be made that Carlos Correa is the best shortstop in baseball right now. There’s an equally strong argument that could be made that he’s the best shortstop available in this free agency class. But the Houston Astros likely won’t be able to keep him. That’s especially true after this lowball offer they just lobbed his way. According to a tweet from Mark Berman of KRIV in Houston, the Astros made an offer of five years and $160 million to Correa. MLB sources: The @astros have offered free-agent shortstop Carlos Correa a five-year contract worth $160 million, averaging $32 million a year. — Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) November 6, 2021 Go ahead and expect him to turn that down.

    What happens to the Houston Astros if Carlos Correa leaves? Well, they’ve already got a suitable shortstop ready to go. The Houston Astros have a few tough tasks to go through with the offseason here and free agency staring them straight in the face. After losing to the Atlanta Braves in six games in the 2021 World Series, Houston is facing the possibility of losing yet another one of their stars. Shortstop Carlos Correa will be looking at some pretty impressive contract offers as he enters into free agency. He’s one of the most talented players in MLB and will be impossible to truly replace. Unfortunately for them, the Astros have a couple other free agents they may need to retain or replace. Justin Verlander, Zack Greinke, and Kendall Graveman are all pitchers on the Astros roster who are also entering into free agency this year. When considering how Houston’s starting pitching in particular performed during the World Series, it’s certainly worth looking at pitching as a high priority item that must be properly addressed this offseason. That could make keeping...
    Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros have tough decisions to make as the World Series loss to the Atlanta Braves immediately turns into the offseason with a bunch of concerns on the table. One of the most important questions is regarding Correa’s status with the club moving forward.

    WIth the Houston Astros season over, it sure sounds like Carlos Correa is taking one last lap before he leaves in free agency.  The Houston Astros season ended much the same way it started. Not only are they without a World Series trophy, but rumors of what the future holds for Carlos Correa are beginning to swirl. It took almost no time between the final out of Game 6 on Tuesday and talk of Correa’s exit from Houston beginning. The rumors are nothing new to Astros fans, as there has been talk of a trade going all the way back to Spring Training. With the season officially over, though, the reality of the situation is starting to set in. At least the rumors at the beginning of the season had the caveat of Correa still being under contract for 162 games. It would have been the Astros decision to move him, not the laws of baseball that decided where he ended up. That’s all gone, and it sounds like soon too will Correa. After the Game 6 loss, Correa seemingly...

    Yankees could pursue Carlos Correa, but one MLB insider thinks things could get ugly Andres Chavez October 28, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees have a glaring hole at the shortstop position, since they decided that Gleyber Torres would be the team second baseman in 2022. They have stated that filling that spot is an offseason priority. Fortunately, there are several quality shortstops available in the market: Carlos Correa, Corey Seager, Javier Baez, Trevor Story, and others. Correa could be the most expensive of all, as he is likely to command a deal north of $200 million. However, one MLB insider is worried about him signing with the Yankees given the experiences that one of Correa’s former teammates, Gerrit Cole, has had to endure in his time with the Bronx.

Dusty Baker is currently lucky enough to win his first World Series ring in his managerial career and at his age it is quite impressive. When you look at the formation and analysis of astros, you know one thing: they are full of attacking abilities. Altuves, Correa, Alvarez and company have been continuing to comment on the successes the team has enjoyed for many years now. If a guy like Altuve has to give even more to get a chance at top awards, it’s hard to say the same in the case of Carlos Correa. The latter, through his performance, shows that he is the leader of the team. He is stable and with her A game Every game he plays. Like the other lines in the MLB, the Astros need a guy like him.

    With Carlos Correa all set to enter free agency this offseason, could he end up making a surprise return to the Houston Astros?  What’s the future have in store for Carlos Correa? The star Houston Astros slugger is hoping to bring home another World Series title, but he’s in the last year of his current deal. While fans are hoping that he’ll return to town, things very much are up in the air. Correa figures to draw plenty of attention this summer and winter, with teams like the New York Yankees ready to chase his signature and offer up a boatload of cash to make it happen. At this point, Astros fans shouldn’t feel too optimistic about a reunion.Astros: Carlos Correa free agency rumorsEarlier this month, team owner Jim Crane said he felt the team still has a chance to bring back Correa, but again, things don’t look promising. The 27-year-old was reportedly offered a five-year extension last offseason, but he was looking for a longer contract. Houston didn’t budge. Now, Correa has only seen his value go up after...
    Carlos Correa got a safe out as a run scored in the second inning to put the Astros down 3-0 early in World Series Game 1. But should he have thrown home? Game 1 of the World Series really did not start out ideally for the Houston Astros. In fact, you would be safe calling it a nightmare. On the first at-bat of the game, Braves leadoff hitter Jorge Soler launched a solo home run over the left field wall. Atlanta then added another run in the first inning. That didn’t stop there, though. The Braves put runners on second and third in the following inning against the Astros with just one out recorded to that point. That’s when Soler hit a groundball to Houston shortstop Carlos Correa, who scooped it up. But rather than trying to throw Travis D’Arnaud out at home, he tagged Joc Pederson out between second and third as the runner scored to make it a 3-0 Houston deficit. And in the aftermath, some were wondering if Correa made the right play because D’Arnaud looked like...

View the original article to see embedded media.Just when it seemed like the Red Sox could do know wrong, the Astros saved their season thanks to two familiar faces. Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, who have spent their entire careers with Houston spanning 2,331 games, ignited a dormant Astros offense and spurred a late inning comeback in what turned into a blowout 9-2 victory in Game 4 on Tuesday night. Altuve dealt the first blow with a solo home run in the eighth inning to tie the game, 2-2. In the ninth, Correa delivered with a leadoff double and later scored on a two-out RBI single by Jason Castro to give Houston the lead. Castro's single was the first of seven straight Astros hitters to reach base with two outs, busting open what had been a tense game....
    When Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez mocked Carlos Correa after getting him out, Red Sox manager and former Astros bench coach Alex Cora stopped him. Baseball’s “unwritten rules” are unofficial codes of good sportsmanship. Essential to nearly all of them is the notion that players should not gloat, whether it’s after hitting a walk-off home run or pitching a batter out. So when Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez had the chance to get out Astros shortstop Carlos Correa from the plate, he couldn’t help but gloat a little. His way of doing that was tapping an imaginary wristwatch, a reference to Correa’s home run celebration in Game 1. Not only is the watch celebration great, but Correa literally never looks back at the ball. This is sick. pic.twitter.com/fCeVVnTfc5 — Sam Levitt (@SammyLev) October 16, 2021 Sweet as revenge may have been, Red Sox manager Alex Cora had no time for Rodriguez’s response.

    BOSTON (CBS) — If the Boston Red Sox took Carlos Correa’s home run celebration personally in Game 1, then manager Alex Cora does not want anybody to know about it. Cora — who was the Astros’ bench coach in 2017 when they won the World  Series, and who managed Correa in the World Baseball Classic for Puerto Rico — hasn’t said anything to fan any flames before or during this ALCS against his old employer. And based on his reaction to a move from Eduardo Rodriguez on Monday night, he wants to keep things as quiet as possible. Rodriguez retired Correa to end the sixth inning, capping an impressive start from the left-hander, in which he allowed three runs and left with a 9-3 lead. On his walk toward the dugout, Rodriguez pointed to his wrist, a clear response to Correa’s celebration at the plate after he hit a huge home run in Game 1 of the series. Not only is the watch celebration great, but Correa literally never looks back at the ball. This is sick. pic.twitter.com/fCeVVnTfc5 — Sam...
    Carlos Correa said it was his time in the Astros’ Game 1 win, so the Red Sox fans made sure to heckle and remind him of that after a Game 3 strikeout. In Houston when he hit a crucial home run to ultimately seal the fate of Game 1 in the ALCS, Astros star shortstop Carlos Correa made sure to admire his work and remind everyone what time it was. His celebration for that homer was undeniably epic and one of the moments of the MLB Postseason. However, one fan in Fenway Park for Game 3 had an even more epic troll as he heckled Correa. Prior to the Red Sox busting the game wide open with a huge second inning that included another grand slam, Correa stepped up to the plate in the top of the second inning and struck out looking. And the Boston fan made sure to return the favor and remind Correa what time it was: ???????????? pic.twitter.com/9FpMObix7a — FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) October 19, 2021 A fan trolled Carlos Correa but the Red Sox made sure the...
    When it comes to dynamic duos, there’s often a clear-cut top dog and a trusty sidekick. That’s not the case with second baseman Jose Altuve and shortstop Carlos Correa, Houston’s middle-infield combo who both shine equally bright for the Astros. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "A lot of times you have one All-Star caliber (player) and like a ... Robin," manager Dusty Baker said. "But this time you’ve got two Batmans." The pair played its 66th postseason game together on Saturday, which is the most by any shortstop and second base duo in MLB history. The two cornerstones of the franchise, or to use Baker's term, the team's vertebrae, have played together since Correa’s debut in 2015, a year that featured their first trip to the postseason. Altuve doesn’t recall a specific conversation they had back then about their expectations for the future, but he knows they often discussed "winning and playing together for a long time." They’ve certainly accomplished both of those goals. This season marks their sixth postseason trip and they’ve helped the Astros to...
    Houston Astros star Carlos Correa received high praise from former MLB great Alex Rodriguez on Saturday ahead of the second game of the American League Championship Series. Correa was 3-for-4 with a pivotal go-ahead home run in the seventh inning of the team’s Friday night win over the Boston Red Sox in Game 1. He was one of two Astros players who had two or more hits in the game, and he delivered in the most clutch moments of the game.

What it has to say depends on the moment and the craftsmanship of the author. It can be an opportunity wasted or one that deserves to be bound in leather and archived. The turn Carlos Correa of the Astros took Friday in the seventh inning of American League Championship Series Game 1 deserves preservation, both for its importance and what it says about the hitting genius of the Houston shortstop.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Alex Cora was certainly guilty of participating in a sign-stealing scheme executed by the 2017 Houston Astros en route to their World Series championship. Then the bench coach of the Astros, Cora has admitted as much numerous times since MLB handed out punishment last April. Yet, the punishment was certainly distributed disproportionately. Despite MLB determining the operation was “player-driven and player-executed,” there were no players punished. Only Cora, then-manager A.J. Hinch, and then-GM Jeff Luhnow, were suspended after the investigation. The only player to suffer any consequences was Carlos Beltran, who had been named the Mets’ manager but ended up losing that opportunity. The players on that team — Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, George Springer, Yuli Gurriel, and others — suffered no consequences for their actions, and didn’t even have to hear much jeering in the mostly empty-ballpark season of 2020. So, in an interesting moment before Friday night’s Game 1, it was notable when Fox’s Ken Rosenthal asked Correa what was going through his mind when watching Cora get emotional...
    The longtime Houston Astros shortstop hinted at which New York team he’d prefer as a free agent — and it wasn’t the New York Mets.  It’s a fact: Fans of blue and orange in New York sports are destined to misery.

    Yankees: Could Carlos Correa be an option via free agency? Andres Chavez October 14, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees need a shortstop for 2022. Carlos Correa, who currently plays for the Houston Astros and is about to start his participation on the 2021 AL Championship Series, will be a free agent after the season. Over the years, there has been some history between Correa and the Yankees. He hasn’t been shy when celebrating big postseason hits or moments, he was part of the 2017 sign-stealing scandal in Houston, and overall, he is not well-liked by most of the fan base. But if he will hit the market, is willing to come, and performs, most Yankees fans would be smart to leave the past behind and embrace that hypothetical scenario. The biggest problem for a team like the Yankees, one with two contracts worth more than $300 million already and a pending negotiation with Aaron Judge for a possible extension, would be...
