There was a bit of a shocker in the MLB this week, as Carlos Correa’s 13-year, $350 million deal with the Giants fell through, and he signed with the Mets for 12 years and $315 million. The move came in the middle of the night, and took the baseball world by storm.
On Tuesday, the Giants canceled Correa’s introductory press conference, due to concerns with the physical. Then, the story went silent.
About 12 hours later, though, in the middle of the night, it was reported that Correa instead signed with the Mets.
Our Doug McKain broke down all the crazy news that came out of that story and even went into what it means for the Dodgers. It definitely changes a lot of things in terms of next offseason:
The baseball world hasn’t really seen something like this happen, especially at this magnitude. It’ll be interesting to see what the Giants say in the coming days, and what Correa and the Mets say at his introductory press conference. It’ll also be interesting to see how this affects the Giants’ ability to sign free agents moving forward, like Doug said.
But for the Dodgers, as they zero in on Shohei Ohtani next offseason, it does feel like the Mets now have to be out of the running. The Giants, of course, will still be in the mix, but they clearly had some buyer’s remorse with a 13-year, $350 million deal, and Ohtani is going to require a lot more.
