All by the offseason, the CBS Sports activities actions MLB consultants will carry you a weekly Batting Spherical roundtable breaking down nearly one thing. The latest info, a historic question, concepts about the way in which forward for baseball, all types of stuff. Ultimate week we talked about Jacob deGrom’s landing spot. This week we’ll do the similar with Carlos Correa.
The place will Carlos Correa sign and for the way in which quite a bit?
R.J. Anderson: I’m going to say the Giants. They’ve a necessity for an impression bat and he’s the easiest one left standing (and a heck of a consolation prize after dropping out on Aaron Determine). As an instance 10 years, $345 million to clear Lindor.
Dayn Perry: I’m going to associate with the upset and predict he stays with the incumbent Twins, who’ve actually confirmed a willingness to spend cash on the product recently. Complete price of $330 million on the deal.
Matt Snyder: I really feel it could be an upset at this stage, nonetheless I’m going to associate with the Cubs. Jed Hoyer has preached “sensible spending” on any doable prolonged and even barely prolonged contracts, nonetheless seeing all these gives proper right here not too way back have to be a wakeup title for him that if he wants the Cubs to be the form of participant they have to be — given their monstrous property — he’ll must suck it up every often and splurge, lest the Cubs develop to be the Midwest mannequin of the Pink Sox with your entire “we tried” mantra after dropping out to most important free brokers. They presently have a roster stuffed with complementary-type gamers and Correa is a centerpiece celeb that pushes them up into rivalry. At his age, the long-term deal is way a lot much less worrisome than what it would’ve taken for Xander Bogaerts, as an illustration.
Mike Axisa: The Padres! I indicate, possibly not, nonetheless who’s conscious of with GM A.J. Preller? In all seriousness, I’m going to interrupt the three-way tie with my teammates and say the Giants. They’ve tons — A LOT — of cash burning a spot of their pocket after dropping Determine and leaving this offseason and never utilizing a star bat could be a disappointment. I really feel San Francisco’s possession is eager to go to a spot financially that Minnesota’s will not, then the Giants will merely outbid the Cubs. It’s the Giants for me, narrowly edging out the Cubs. As for the contract, I’m going to associate with 12 years at $32 million per yr ($384 million full).
