"Correa accepting this contract, with a guarantee less than two-thirds of what was on the table a month ago and a back end with the most team-friendly terms for a free agent since Andre Dawson handed the Cubs a blank contract in 1987 and told them to fill in the number, gives away the game. Whatever is in the physicals, whatever the state of his right leg, he doesn’t think he can do better than this contract."
