Carlos Correa talks Astros vs. Braves World Series, Jose Altuve Impact & Framber Valdez
Carlos Correa touches on various factors ahead of the Houston Astros’ World Series match-up with the Atlanta Braves. He speaks on the importance of his teammates and what winning another World Series with them would mean to him.
According to Correa, playing with Jose Altuve for so long has allowed them to become extremely comfortable manning the middle of the infield. He also acknowledges how important Altuve’s clutch factor is to their team. Even when struggling at the plate, Correa believes Altuve can make game-altering plays. Another teammate Carlos is counting on is Framber Valdez. The young left-hander has earned the Game One start for the Astros. Correa knows firsthand how difficult it is to bat against Valdez. He notes that Valdez’s curveball and sinker combination is especially hard to pick up as a hitter.
As most know, Carlos Correa is set to be a free agent after this season concludes. His main focus is winning another World Series with the organization he came up with. He and the Astros do not need any outside motivation to complete this task. Correa believes this team shows up to work every day ready to play hard. The Astros receive an exceptional amount of hate for the sign-stealing scandal during their 2017 World Series win, but Correa does not let that outside noise become a factor.
The future for Correa and the Astros is a mystery. Right now, he wants to put another ring on his finger. He will deal with his contract situation after he and the Astros complete their task at hand.
