Here's some good news on the Correa front.
“We [Correa and Polanco] just talk baseball almost all day,” Jorge Polanco said. “We haven't stopped. Sometimes, we talk about family, but it's baseball. … We talk about working out. We talk about getting ready for the season. Things like that. We motivate each other. That's really good.”
It’s the Latin American contingent of the Twins’ roster that maintains that everyday chatter with Correa, but there’s another very important player who also keeps in regular contact with his old teammate: center fielder Byron Buxton. The two superstars grew quite close last season, and Buxton frequently spoke about how much Correa’s advice and mindset meant to him and impacted his mental approach to gameplay and recovery.
“I talk to him just about every week,” Buxton said. “Me and him have a great relationship. I know what he wants to do. He knows what he wants to do. It's up to [the front office] to go back and get him. So that's the bottom line. He wants to be here. It's up to us to go get him.”
It will come down to $$$.
Yup, and I like our chances.
You like our chances? When has...it will come down to money...ever worked in the Twins favor?
