How Carlos Correa's return provides candid reflection of Astros savvy past, tricky future

With Carlos Correa making his return to Houston, we examine the Astros decision to roll with a less expensive shortstop in Jeremy Pena, and discuss how that decision looks now.

Plus, we examine how Correa's stats this season would make him the 5TH-BEST hitter on the Astros, which means Houston would have had to overpay substantially to keep him in H-Town. Which could limit the team's ability to re-sign Verlander next year.

Finally, we address Pena's recent struggles, and if the Astros can fade both Pena and Martin Maldonado's offensive struggles in 2023.
