New York Yankees fans already tend to not love Houston Astros players, and the latest comment from current free agent and former Astors star shortstop Carlos Correa will only upset them more. While on the “Me Gustan Los Deportes” podcast last week with former MLB second baseman Carlos Baerga, Correa said the Yankees’ legendary shortstop Derek Jeter did not deserve any of the five Gold Glove Awards he took home during his playing days..
“Derek Jeter, how many Gold Gloves did he win? Five, I think he won. … Derek Jeter didn’t deserve any.”
Jeter was awarded the American League Gold Glove in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2010, but he wouldn’t have won any if it was up to Correa. The free agent — who the Yankees may sign, by the way — backed up his critiques of Jeter with fielding analytics.
He mentioned Jeter’s minus-165 Defensive Runs Saved. Correa has a DRS of 67 in his seven years in Houston.
The 27-year-old Correa is coming off a World Series loss to the Atlanta Braves. Now, Correa is a free agent and the Yankees could be looking to add him to their squad. If that happens, maybe Yankees fans will forget that he dissed their former captain.
The Atlanta Falcons are staying on the road on Sunday to face off against the Seattle Seahawks at 4:25 p.m. ET Sept. 25 at Lumen Field. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close game.
Atlanta didn’t finish too far behind, but the team still lost 31-27 to the Los Angeles Rams this past Sunday. No one had a standout game offensively for the Falcons, but they got scores from WR Olamide Zaccheaus and WR Drake London. QB Marcus Mariota ended up with a passer rating of 138.70.
Meanwhile, the contest between Seattle and the San Francisco 49ers this past Sunday was not particularly close, with the Seahawks falling 27-7. QB Geno Smith had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw one interception with only 197 yards passing. Smith ended up with a passer rating of 128.50.
With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
