Within minutes of the announcement that baseball is back, Cubs pitcher Marcus Stroman immediately shot hit shot with free agent shortstop Carlos Correa.
The prayers to the baseball Gods have been answered, as the MLB lockout is over and the beautiful game will be back in our lives soon enough.
Stroman is fired up too, but he’s hoping a big name will join him at Wrigley Field this season. Right after the breaking news on the lockout dropped, Stroman immediately took to Twitter to try and recruit superstar shortstop Carlos Correa.
Baseball is back, and so are all of the Carlos Correa rumors
Stroman had already won over countless fans in Chicago, but his popularity in the city is only growing by the minute.
He’s developed a strong passion for the Cubs and he wants to help this team get back to the World Series.
Adding a player of Correa’s caliber would most definitely help in that department. Correa didn’t sign with a team before the lockout. He’s been linked to the Cubs and Yankees, while people in Houston aren’t ready to rule out a reunion with the Astros.
Despite Astros supporters holding on to some hope, it feels like a long shot that Correa will re-sign with the club. This could open the door for Correa to move to Chicago to continue his head-turning career with the Cubs.
Everyone is waiting to see who will end up winning the Correa sweepstakes. This also isn’t the first time Stroman has reached out to Correa to try and convince him. Cubs fans everywhere are ready to see if those efforts will pay off or not.
