The MLB free agency news is heating up. USA Today’s Bob Nightengale revealed the Dodgers are now in the lead to acquire All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa.
“Executives believe the leading candidate to sign Correa is the Dodgers. Certainly money has never been an issue, particularly with $119 million coming off their books. But the tricky part might be convincing the Dodgers’ players, and their fan base, that it’s time to forgive and forget. Correa, of course, was in the heart of that 2017 Astros cheating scandal, and the Dodgers and their fans have loudly voiced their anger. Has enough time gone by to welcome Correa? And, come on, who would Dodgers fans rather see, Correa or Gavin Lux, play shortstop?”
Correa remains a hot commodity for many teams in need of a shortstop. He is only 28 years old and has accomplished so much in his eight-year career. Carlos is a Rookie of the Year winner, two-time All-Star, Gold glove winner, platinum glove winner, and a World Series champion.
I know he and the 2017 Houston Astros cheated against the Dodgers to capture that World Series title, but Carlos would be the spark we need, Dodger fans.
He’s fiery, passionate, and, most importantly, clutch both in the regular season and postseason.
Many teams remain in the running for the 28-year-old, so his price will be high
Many Dodger fans have not forgiven and forgotten about Correa’s actions and comment about the cheating scandal, so it won’t be a warm welcome if he becomes a Dodger.
I’m sure those boos will turn into cheers once he dominates in Dodger blue (if he signs).
How would you feel about acquiring Carlos Correa, Dodger fans?
