There was a new star of the show at the MLB Winter Meetings on Tuesday, and his name is Scott Boras.
Boras had quite the crowd gathered around him, as he spoke about the many top free agents he represents this offseason. One of those is shortstop Carlos Correa, who has polarized Dodger fans this offseason.
Some fans want the Dodgers to add Correa, as he would provide the energy and spark this team was missing in last year’s postseason. He also, of course, is one of the best shortstops in all of baseball.
On the other end of the spectrum, however, is the fans who don’t want anything to do with him, as he was a member of the 2017 Astros who cheated the Dodgers out of a World Series victory.
On Tuesday, Boras told dodgersnation.com that he didn’t think Correa’s past would be an issue if he joined the Dodgers.
“Fans care about winning. They care about winning the right way, and I think anyone who knows Carlos Correa understands his leadership and his commitment and skill level he brings.”

The Dodgers No. 1 goal next season is to win. It’s as simple as that. After their way-too-early exit in the 2022 postseason, expectations have never been higher for this team to succeed.
After winning 111 games, and losing in the NLDS, the 2022 Dodgers were one of the most disappointing teams in MLB history. Their job this offseason is to address every possible need that will allow them to succeed come next year’s postseason. If that means signing a player who has become a villain to a good amount of the fan base, then so be it. Winning will cure everything.
