The Carlos Correa saga still has yet to be resolved.
The veteran shortstop had signed a 13-year, $350 million deal with the San Francisco Giants that ultimately fell through when San Francisco expressed concern over his physical.
That gave the New York Mets time to swoop in and sign the two-time All-Star to a 12-year, $315 million contract.
However, the Mets expressed the same concern that the Giants had expressed with Correa’s right foot.
And so, Mets fans are playing a waiting game right now, as they hope and pray for the situation to be resolved and for Correa to suit up in Mets blue and orange for the next decade.

In the end, Mets fans may end up feeling the same disappointment that Giants fans are feeling right now.
There is still no definitive answer to the question that has plagued the baseball world for the past several weeks.
As a result, Correa is technically still a free agent, so another team could swoop in and steal him from the Mets, just as New York had done to the Giants.
But as time goes on, Mets fans’ collective patience is growing thin as they hope for an answer and a resolution to this ongoing situation.
If everything works out for the Mets and Correa, then Correa will shift from shortstop to third base and form a solid left side of the infield with shortstop Francisco Lindor.
Until then, the Mets and their fans are stuck in a holding pattern as they await the final results.
