After making five straight appearances in the ALCS, which includes winning a World Series in 2017, Carlos Correa decided to leave the franchise that drafted him back in 2012 for the Minnesota Twins this off-season. After reports stating that Correa had turned down a five-year $160 million deal with the Houston Astros, I was surprised to hear that the two-time All-Star decided to sign with the Twinsfor (only) three years and 105.3 million. With Scott Boras representing him, I believe this has alot to do with the option to opt out after only one season and then test the free-agent market again next season.
The Houston Astros have been great at rebuilding and likely wanted to plan for the future. I’m sure the Astros would have loved to have had Correa back on the five-year deal, but going through this again with Correa next season as a free agent is not something the Astros had an interest in. Nevertheless, as a fan of the game, seeing Correa sign with the Twins was disappointing to me, but dueto the terms of his contract, a reunion between Correa and the Stros in 2023 is not impossible.
I'm not going to pretend to have the most experience as a professional handicapper. There are so many guys who I have great respect for who have been doing this for longer than I have been born. However, in the amount of time I have been handicapping I have learned a lot lessons quickly regarding the major do's and don'ts of sports handicapping, and I continue to get better and learn more every day. And unlike most of the people who will read this bio, I do not lose money betting on sports each year. So after a few years of managing and maintaining profits, and even purchasing picks from other well known and respected "expert" handicappers, whose picks turned out to be much more expensive and less successful than my own, I decided to help fellow gamblers win money, while keeping more money in their own pockets. Honesty, customer service and long term relationships are most important to me, and WINNING of course. Join me on my journey, and let's win some money!
