Carlos Correa is headed out west.
Late on Tuesday, the star shortstop inked a 13-year, $350 million deal with the San Francisco Giants.
Correa bet on himself by signing a three-year contract with the Minnesota Twins last offseason.
The two-time All-Star ultimately opted out of his deal and became a free agent again.
For fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Correa has been somewhat of a lightning rod for their hatred for the Houston Astros over what took place in 2017 due to the sign-stealing scandal.
On Twitter, one Astros insider took great pleasure in the fact that Correa will now get to torture the Dodgers and their fans for the next 13 years.

Adding Fuel To The Fire
The Astros of course have Jeremy Pena, who earned ALCS and World Series MVP honors this past October, which made fans forget all about Correa.
But Astros fans still take pleasure in the fact that the Dodgers and their fans remain upset about what happened in 2017.
Correa was of course a part of that Astros team.
Dodgers fans have not hesitated to voice their distaste for Correa.
But now that the 2017 World Series champion is a member of the Giants, Dodgers fans are going to be seeing a lot of him.
The rivalry between the Dodgers and Giants is already a heated one, but Correa signing in San Francisco adds even more fuel to the fire and adds to the anger of Dodgers fans.
The hottest rivalry in the National League just got even more interesting.
