While teams, managers, and front offices leave no stone unturned to freeze the top players in MLB free agency, fans too are doing their all to attract players to the team. Sadly, though, the MLB lockout has put a pause on franchises communicating with the players. Hence, Chicago Cubs’ fans took it upon themselves to win over the man in demand, Carlos Correa.

Chicago Cubs fans sing ‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’ for Correa

In the 2021 off-season, Carlos Correa has been on the radar of the top MLB teams like New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros, and Chicago Cubs. Interestingly, before the lockout, he signed no deal, leaving his future uncertain. While the lockout has restricted the teams from officially contacting him, there are no restrictions for fans. So, Cubs fans grabbed the festival mood to send out a message to the star.

Cubs fans morphed the famous Christmas carol, ‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’ singing ”Come play in Chicago, Correa.”

Certainly, this was a genuine and heartwarming effort from the fans. Now, they’ll be hoping that Carlos, who has been spending the festive time with his family, will reward them for this sweet gesture. Notably, it’s not just the team and fans who have shown an interest in building a relationship here.

According to a report, not only the management, but Carlos might also be interested in joining the Chicago team. Carlos had approached a former Cubs player, Javy Báez. Notably, baseball’s top shortstop inquired about the team, and about Javy’s experience playing on the North Side.

However, it has to be noted that Carlos is aiming for a deal worth a whopping $300 million and more. If the Cubs want him on their side, they have to be willing to shell out big bucks for the same.
