‘200 million dollar contract → batting average of 10.8 → Home fan’s booing… 264.4 billion shortstop “If that salary is the same as mine, they will boo it”

 Minnesota Twins shortstop Carlos Correa admitted that he understood the booing of home fans.

Correa, who signed a six-year, $200 million (264.4 billion won) free agent contract with Minnesota last winter, is sluggish this season with a batting average of .105, 5 homers, 15 RBIs and an OPS of .624.

Minnesota lost 1-6 in the match against San Diego held at Target Field in Minneapolis on the 10th (Korean time). Correa was silent with no hits in 5 at-bats, and his batting average dropped to 1.8%.

The Minnesota home crowd was furious and booed Correa as he entered his last two at-bats.

According to ESPN, Correa said, “I’d be booed too if I was making money like that.” It was a response that he understood the fans’ booing following his poor performance.

Last winter, Correa agreed to a 13-year, $350 million contract with San Francisco, but the contract was canceled after problems with a medical test. Subsequently, the New York Mets proposed a condition of 315 million dollars in 12 years and agreed, but the Mets failed the medical test and the contract was canceled.

In the end, Correa agreed to a six-year,스포츠토토 $200 million contract with Minnesota, who chose free agency with a one-year contract last year.

Correa’s season start has been poor. He said, “Obviously (booing) is acceptable. It is part of the game and part of the sport. Fans want productivity, fans want to compete and win. That’s to be expected when you’re not playing well. But at the same time don’t stop trying. If I keep trying and keep focusing on what I can control, the results will come.”

Minnesota is at the top of the American League Central Division with 19 wins and 17 losses. As of the 10th, 2 games against Cleveland. They are 2.5 games ahead of Detroit.

However, they have scored only 6 points in their last 4 games. Minnesota went 2-4 in six straight road games last week, allowing just 28 hits in 58 innings. The team’s batting average is .2019, which is the lowest among the 30 major league teams.

In addition to Correa, Joey Gallo recently went hitless in 25 at-bats. Jose Miranda went 2-for-21 on the road last week.

ESPN said, “Correa receives an annual salary of 32 million dollars (approximately 42.3 billion won) this year. It is the sixth-highest salary among major league position players. It is the easiest target for fans to express their dissatisfaction. Correa was booed by the home crowd.”

In the game against San Diego on the 10th, Correa was last outed with a fly ball to the first baseman in the 3rd inning, 1st and 2nd bases in the 3rd inning, 1st and 2nd bases in the 7th inning, and a ground ball in the 9th inning with 2 outs and 2nd and 3rd bases.

“I believe in the players and I believe our coaching staff can do it,” Minnesota coach Rocco Baldelli said. “A few ways to add ideas to a situation, add a little patience for yourself, and actually calm down will probably work better than anything else. I think Correa knows that,” said Faith.
