It turns out that Carlos Correa is extremely fortunate to still have difficulty in the previous year’s market economy and wise to have chosen a 3-year contract with an opt out so that he could try again in this year’s marketplace, which is booming and full of clubs looking to acquire a shortstop.
The current Twins would go as far as you can with Correa because they adore him as a people and a player. However, they could struggle to hold off the Giants, who are determined and have that three-sixty million dollars or more in their pockets. They also feel a need to spice it up a squad that wasn’t very intriguing in 2022. It’s not surprising that now the Twins slightly lost faith in their ability to retain their man given that the two-eighty million dollars Xander Bogaerts agreement with the Padres foreshadows Correa’s skyrocketing above $300 mn. Following a sharp decline in participation, Giants ownership has become increasingly active, looks determined to address several gaps, and is also hoping to generate hype.
Carlos Correa In Prime Free Agency Position:
At least 5 clubs are still looking for a shortstop, but the current market price is now reduced to just Carlos Correa and Swanson, who is great but doesn’t compare to Correa in terms of style and flair. Correa as well as Swanson are all under consideration by the Cubs, but Swanson would seem like a fairly natural choice given that his fiancée, Pugh, Mallory, is a star for the Red Stars soccer team and that he will be more affordable than Carlos Correa.
Swanson may be able to afford the money because the Red Sox are rumored to have given Bogaerts $28 million over 6 years, although it shouldn’t be counted out that Boston may also try to get Carlos Correa. Despite the lack of a definite sign, manager Cora has a romantic relationship with Correa dating back to their time spent together in Houston.
