Top 10 shortstops in baseball for 2017

There is no more exciting and rapidly developing position in the game today than shortstop. It has become a new beast over the past few years across MLB. By all indications, it's a wave that is just getting underway. In each of the past two seasons, a Rookie of the Year selection has been a shortstop, and in last year’s All-Star Game, of the six shortstops selected, each made his...

Correa must wait to get going after wisdom teeth removal

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) It's easy to see that Carlos Correa doesn't feel well from across the Houston Astros clubhouse. His face is partially obscured by the hood of a bright orange sweatshirt he pulled on after changing out of his street clothes on Saturday morning, but what you can of his face beneath the shadow of the hoodie isn't the normal look for the charismatic 22-year...

Addition of vets leaves Astros with 'sky high' expectations

Carlos Correa, Playing Through Injury, and True Talent

“Different day, different arm,” is one of those things you’ll hear a pitcher say. You get up on the mound on a given day, and you try to figure out which pitches are working, what parts of your body are barking, where you can actually intentionally throw your pitches. It’s understandable, given the complicated mechanics required to throw the ball so hard, with so much movement...

Carlos Correa Looks Historically Great

Carlos Correa placed second last week on the trade-value list that Dave Cameron puts together every season. That placement seemed to surprise some, given that Correa is having a very good, but not great season. Correa’s 120 wRC+ is hardly spectacular, even if that number increases to 150 if you start with the latter part of May. He has improved over the last few months, but even...

Carlos Correa's Sophomore Slump Isn't Much Of A Slump (Yet)

The Houston Astros are not off to the start they had hoped for, or indeed, the start that anyone expected. Prior to the beginning of the 2016 season, the overarching opinion seemed to be that the Astros were a shoo-in for the playoffs and the likely winner of the AL West. So far, things aren't going exactly according to plan.It's early yet, and the season is long. However, one cannot...

Carlos Correa’s interference, and why baseball needs to make a change

It was the turning point of Tuesday’s game. In the eighth inning, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa hit a dribbler on the first base side of the mound. Dellin Betances had to scramble down to get the ball. When he turned to throw it to first base, he chucked it over everyone and into right field. At first blush, it appeared to just be a case of a reliever bungling a non-routine play...
