Carlos Correa, the next star to leave the Houston Astros?

Hwhatever it was, the Houston Astros they have had a period of domination rarely seen. They have five consecutive appearances in the American League Championship Series, even after the signal theft scandal and with a team that he has lost multiple star players.

On the team that played the last World Series, only José Altuve, Alex Bregman, Yuri Gurriel and Carlos Correa were on the team that made it to the 2017 Fall Classic, and the last one could be the next one on the exit ramp.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, Correa turned down the Astros’ last contract offer, which was for 5 years and $ 160 million. The Puerto Rican wants a contract like the one he signed Francisco Lindor with the Mets, 10 years and 341 million (2 million more per year). And it is not the first offer that Correa rejects, since he rejected 5 years and 125 million before the start of the 2021 season.

At 27, Correa is entering the prime of his career and wants a great contract, perhaps the last of a large contract in his career. He is coming off one of his best seasons, winning the Golden Glove and being selected to his second All-Star Game, in addition to imposing a personal best with 26 home runs in the regular season.
