The Carlos Correa saga continues into 2023.
At this point, we all know the story.
The San Francisco Giants raised concerns over his physical after signing him to a 13-year, $350 million contract, which allowed the New York Mets time to jump in and steal him away.
However, they too have expressed concerns, and it’s possible that they may have reached their breaking point.
According to Andy Martino of SNY, the Mets have grown “very frustrated” with the way the talks have gone and are now considering walking away altogether.
Talks have been happening constantly, and are still happening, but before long, we may see the Mets bow out.

The drama continues.
Two organizations who have agreed to terms with Correa on massive contracts are experiencing the same problems.
The Giants weren’t able to secure the deal, and it appears that there is a ton of posturing taking place between Correa’s camp and the Mets as of now.
And so, the Mets have grown frustrated and now are in a position where they may want to walk away from the deal altogether.
Owner Steve Cohen certainly wouldn’t be terribly pleased if that were to take place, nor would the Mets fanbase.
But that is the reality of the situation.
Correa’s physical has caused a great many problems and has led to this moment.
While there is still a chance that a deal will get done, the Mets now find themselves at a crossroads with the star shortstop.
The process has been a frustrating one for both sides.
