Could probably offer an opt out after year 2 also.I know it’s been mentioned and I’ve advocated for this before all this medical stuff came out but man if I’m the Sox I jump in and go huge on a three year deal. 3/135 or something like that. If it blows up it blows up but it’s only a three year commitment. But if Correa is healthy then he will only be like 30 or 31 (can’t remember his birthday) when that contract is over and will be able to (again, if he’s healthy) get another good sized deal then.
Maybe Correa sees that he can’t have the 10 year deal or whatever because of this medical issue and thinks ok let’s just do this in shorter chunks with much higher AAVs.
Worth a try anyway. For the Sox it would solve multiple problems at once: fills the hole at SS, fills the need for a good RH bat, and provides a bridge to Mayer.
