In the world of sports, rivalry follows every change. It increases more when someone known becomes your opponent. The same has happened with the Minnesota Twins’ shortstop Carlos Correa, who is now playing against his former team. Speculations surrounding whether he gave his best for the Houston Astros or not have resulted in his blunt response after a brilliant play in the last playoff game. However, his response now is attracting repercussions!

Notably, it has been a great season for the Minnesota Twins. They have made it to the playoffs with a brilliant play and multiple players contributed to it, including Correa, especially in a win that leveled the series 1-1. But the situation changed afterward, with struggles, ending the inspirational comeback. Correa, who wanted a better end, was unhappy. He showed his frustration in the open. Given the eyes were on him, it gave another reason for his former fans to react amidst the intense playoff battle.

The past few days have been a unique story between Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros. A reason behind it is the playoff contest in which the two are against each other. Although the battle is on the field, the war of words has continued off the field. The story that started with the boos in Houston took a turn after Correa’s comeback.

He contributed to three RBIs against his former team in a crucial win and wanted to continue the same. But it did not happen and was visible in his helmet-breaking reaction in the dugout after he got out in a crucial fourth game. MLB Fox described it saying, “Carlos Correa was not too pleased after lining out to Jeremy Peña”  and rightly so.

He could not make a single in his three at-bats and returned empty-handed. Moreover, it also limited his contribution further as he left, staring at a heartbreaking defeat. The scenes clearly seemed to be unfolding in opposition to the MLB star and his expectations.

Carlos Correa could not contribute as the Houston Astros defeated the Twins to make it to the ALCS for the seventh straight time. He left the game with nothing against his name in a 3-2 defeat facing his former team.

Fans who were not pleased with him again showed their dissatisfaction while reacting to his incident and the Twins’ loss.
