You should know how these things operate by now if you have been doing this long enough. In sports, and in media generally, nothing beats a good storyline that draws attention and brings in the viewers. That's the goal of every business, every team, and every player. Well, we have a fantastic opportunity to cash in on a storyline before it even starts, and that comes in the form of the Minnesota Twins' "new" shortstop Carlos Correa.
It's not every offseason where you see a star player bounce from team to team after being handed a deal at three different places around the country. The whole Giants-to-Mets-to-Twins story has been one of the biggest of this offseason, if not the biggest. So wouldn't it be the perfect set-up for a Correa MVP candidate push? The guy who was passed up on by multiple teams due to a physical that wasn't ideal comes back and leads Minnesota to an AL Central title and playoff series victory for the first time in forever. I can already see the headlines.
Correa was the 2015 AL Rookie of the Year, a two-time All-Star and a three-time recipient of MVP votes, including a fifth-place finish for AL MVP in 2021. It isn't like this is a reach by any stretch of the imagination, and it would certainly do the MLB good with the attention it would bring. Last season in 2022, he hit .307 and homered at a 162-game pace of 28. If he improves on those numbers, and if the Twins can prove people wrong to make the postseason in 2023, he definitely can win this award. Now, it's scary that he is in the same league as guys like Ohtani, Judge and Guerrero Jr., but this type of win would attract much more attention than another Judge or Ohtani MVP.
Correa is turning 28, so he is just presumably starting the prime of his career. We have already seen what he is capable of, now it's just about proving everyone wrong for making fun of him this offseason. He's seen the jokes about how he is being passed around like several things I'd rather not mention. Now he has a chance to silence those memes forever, and prove he deserved that massive 13-year, $350 million contract the Giants apparently offered him at first. The stars are all aligning, and at +3500, I think that's great value on what would surely be a great story for baseball.
