FFS, he was joking around.  He did actually answer the question.

Yeah I posted in my follow up post 10 hours before your response. Roch is the equivalent to a Kings Court Jester.

I think a proper Court Jester would be much better at physical comedy beyond just wearing really tight shirts at 58.

It’s amusing to see middle aged men who choose vanity as a way of compensating.

His reporting is exactly what it should be.

You said he was joking. FFS you said. I don’t call that straight reporting and he’s not exactly known for his “reporting”.

Apparently the Astros have offered Correa a few deals in the area of 6/120.  He made a comment that the Astros don’t like big contracts and that it wasn’t much of a negotiation.

The Astros are very smart and while they are willing to pay a lot, they will only go so far.

Correa, like Springer last year, will leave and get a huge deal Elsewhere.

If Correa had a better track record on health, he’d probably get a lot more than that.  Those three straight years missing significant time with injuries hurt his stock considerably.

Still, 34.1.rWAR through his age 26 season in 752 games is pretty impressive.   A few comps through age 26:

Manny 37.0 rWAR in 1082 games

Harper 32.3 rWAR in 1084 games

Lindor 28.0 rWAR in 777 games.  

On a WAR/162 basis, Correa beats all three rather easily.   But, he has played 110 games or less in three different 152-game seasons.

Oh, he’s getting way more than 6/120. He may push for Lindors deal.

I agree, he’ll get a lot more than that.   I was more referring to what the Astros would pay to keep him.   I don’t think they’ll be in the finalists of the bidding for Correa because of his injury history with them.   

As to what some other team pays him, I’m guessing he falls short of Lindor, who was overpaid by a new owner wanting to flex his financial muscles.

MLB Now yesterday excerpted some of Correa's interview here with the Cubs Talk Podcast.

https://www.nbcsports.com/chicago/cubs-talk-podcast

He had his talking points down, citing how he led league in WAR, in dWAR, how even though teams don't like 10-year contracts they get given out to 30 year olds, and he is going to be 27 in Year1.   

Dan O'Dowd on the panel with Brian Kenny after the clip had the GM's counter of "two seasons with 475 PA".   Their back and forth was between 7 and 10 years on term.

So during the ALDS, he took a few minutes to cultivate the Chicago market.

The last two years, he has managed to overcome the intermittent injuries that dogged him so 2017-2019.
