More Astros power sinks the Sox
The Red Sox held Altuve to 2-for-3 with 2 walks. That's progress. Houston's young SS, Carlos Correa, took over the power duties this time. The kid just turned 23 last month and is already a first-tier star. He batted .315 this year, with 24 homers in just 109 games, and a.941 OPS.
Correa is making the league minimum now. I think that may go up just a tad in the open market. He and his agent have already said he will not negotiate an extension, but will play until he's a free agent. (But he said that in spring, when he was ticked off that the 'Stros would not negotiate with him. I suppose that could change.)
As for the series ...
So far, the Sox got nuttin'. Maybe Fenway will be kinder to them.
