Houston Astros Shortstop Carlos Correa Talks About How He ‘Blacked Out’ The World Series
Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa finished the 2017 MLB season batting .315 with 24 HRs and 84 RBIs (only 2 SB’s which is odd for a shortstop). He also finished the season as a World Series champion and a newly engaged man.
Carlos captured headlines worldwide when he went to the stands to propose to his then-girlfriend after winning the World Series, a moment that was captured on video by local news outlets. Carlos has been living his best life for the past few days between winning the 2017 World Series, getting engaged, and celebrating in Houston’s World Series parade. As a side note, this must’ve been a pretty frustrating interview for Jimmy Kimmel, a guy who’s a huge Dodgers fan.
He was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night where he talked about his whirlwind of a life and how he basically ‘blacked out’ the World Series win and his subsequent celebrations. Everything moved so fast, as it tends to do when life is moving at warp speed. As a Tampa Bay Rays fan, I have absolutely no reason to root for Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros but I found them to be one of the most compelling stories in all of baseball this year. They were a fun team to watch, and became even easier to root for when Justin Verlander joined the team (he’s been on my fantasy team for years). Big congrats going out to Correa, the Houston Astros, and all of Houston on this World Series win.
