The fans have spoken and Carlos Correa is not an option worth taking. The sting of the World Series loss that was spearheaded by Correa and the Astros cheating scandal is something fans won’t easily forget.
Reports come as a surprise as Scott Boras remained vocal that despite the baggage Correa will be welcomed with open arms. At the end of the day, winning is what matters most.
Well turns out fans voices are heard after all and bringing in Correa is not the stunt the Dodgers are ready to pull (via Ken Rosenthal, The Athletic).
The Dodgers are not pursuing shortstop Carlos Correa in part out of concern that a sizable portion of their fan base would not welcome the move. Correa was the most outspoken member of the 2017 Astros club that stole signs illegally during the postseason, and beat the Dodgers in a seven-game World Series.
It remains to be seen if the reports are true, but many signs point towards Correa not ending up with the Dodgers. MLB’s Juan Toribio also doesn’t see a Correa and Dodgers unity in the near future as he told Doug McKain he “had a gut feeling he wouldn’t be a Dodger.
The pressure continues to rise for the team as they they look for an answer to fill the shortstop position. Correa’s talents are easy to see, but it seems the Dodgers are more willing to roll with the punches of a smaller name shortstop than face backlash of bringing in Correa.
