I'm sure no one is more frustrated than Correa himself, but good grief. Unless he has a miraculousb physical turn around, the Astros absolutely should not give him that big contract he's gonna want.

Correa said he was tight, no pain, erring on side of caution.

Will continue with resting guys but still trying to go out and win every game. Likely more players get rested on Thursday after the 3am arrival in LA.

If Correa is in enough pain to not play in the post season, then he will be shut down. In that moment, you can replace him mid-series.

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills with how many times that's been mentioned on this thread.

Yep. Only thing is that if you have to replace him mid series he's not eligible for the next round. I'd almost rather carry an extra IF replacement in that case.

Clevinger dealing and Ramirez with a Grand Slam in his first at bat back after surgery. Indians making a serious push.

Yep. But we should all just come to grips with the fact that its a back issue. If he goes down in the DS or CS, he's going to be shut down for the playoffs cause he won't be able to get better and back up to speed in time.

I'm hoping Hinch is right and it's no big deal.

And the Rays just tied the Yanks 1-1 in the bottom of the 5th.

I don't think it'll be pain that shuts him down. It's be ineffectiveness. He tried to play through it last year and was terrible. These guys will suck it up and play. It's just a matter of it being smart or not. 99% Toro is better than 50% Correa. Last year, 70% Lance was better than a lot of our other options.

Correa and his back are a serious issue.

The fact it's recurring and he gets tightness after an off day is concerning.

However, if he can't play in the postseason it's not gonna make or break us. We've accomplished quite a bit with him out and while I like our chances better with him not having him isn't gonna slow us down.

He's saving us a lot of money in arbitration and hopefully erased any consideration of a long term deal. Waaaayyyy to fragile.

Keep up that YouTube and Insta account with your girl Carlos, keep thinking about that second source of income!!

I'm "rooting" for JV and he's absolutely deserving, but Cole is probably slightly more deserving.

Cole has been the more dominant pitcher when he's on. JV has been the more consistent. If he wins it it will not be unanimous. I wish they could tie.

Would be cool if the voters colluded to split it.

Out the blue, Mrs Mathguy asks "where is Humpty Dumpty ref tonight?" I looked at her like what are you talking about?

She says "you know. That fat ass umpire that falls on players and hurts them."

That's my girl.
