It's time to address the Carlos Correa conundrum
When the Astros drafted Carlos Correa expectations couldn't be higher. Correa was compared to Alex Rodriguez and he was quickly viewed as the future face of the franchise after his rookie year. But that didn't exactly happen with Correa. Injuries slowed him down and Altuve continued to improve and become one of the best hitters in all of baseball while also collecting an AL MVP award in 2017. This year, Correa has become the most vocal player on the Astros, and his postseason performance has many fans thinking that a changing of the guard is occurring as Altuve passes the baton to Correa.
