Q&A

VYPE: How long have you been running cross country and how did you get start?

SP: My brother introduced me to the sport when I was in fourth grade. As a fourth grader, cross country was the only sport I could compete in for my school, and I knew and loved the Coaches: Coach Marion Jones and Coach Anthony Arthur Lee. They taught me what it means to truly work hard and never give up. I am so grateful for them, and they are one of the main reasons I continued cross country.

VYPE: What is your favorite and least favorite part about running?

SP: My favorite thing about running is the community. My team is the most supportive, loving group of people I have ever met, and I cannot imagine running without them. My Saint Agnes Coach, Coach Robbins, inspires me to work hard every day and has always believed in me no matter what. My least favorite part is the mile repeats because it is truly one of the hardest things I have ever done.

VYPE: What is your pregame routine? (Meals, songs, superstitions, etc.)

SP: My pregame routine includes a LOT of pasta (marinara is the best) and a motivating pep talk in which I outline my goals for the race and remind myself that I am a competitor. I discard any negative thoughts and listen to some really good music.

Correa knows it's time for his payday. Composite image by Jack Brame.

The Rangers made a big splash over the weekend when they agreed to terms on a 7-year $175 million contract with infielder Marcus Semien. Apparently, that was just the tip of the iceberg. According to multiple reports, the Rangers have also added arguably the most coveted player in free agency, Corey Seager. Seager and the Rangers have agreed to a massive 10-year $325 million contract.

Before the Seager news broke, many were starting to wonder if teams would be willing to hand out 10-year deals for over 300 million dollars with the lockout just around the corner. Now we have our answer, and Carlos Correa has to be a very happy man to see how the market is shifting. The Rangers not only added two incredible players, but they also made it pretty much a certainty that Correa will either leave Houston, or the Astros will have to sign him to a long-term $300 million deal, which is not likely based on their stance on multi-year big money contracts.

The Rangers aren't the only team in the AL West making blockbuster moves. The Mariners agreed to terms with 2021 AL Cy Young Award winner Robbie Ray on Monday. Ray and Seattle agreed to a 5-year, $115 million contract.

The Angels joined in on the action a couple of weeks ago when they signed Noah Syndergard to a 1-year 21 million dollar deal.

Clearly, the AL West is on notice that they're going to have to make big changes if they want to compete with the Houston Astros who have dominated the AL recently with 5 straight ALCS appearances and 3 trips to the World Series. With Correa likely out the door in Houston, these teams might believe this is a perfect time to make a run at the division and finally knock off the Astros. Only time will tell if these deals will work, and the Astros look to have a terrific team this season whether Correa returns or not.
