Early Wednesday morning, the MLB announced that Carlos Correa was signing with the New York Mets instead of The San Francisco Giants.
After being with the club for six days, everything fell apart during the physical and now the superstar shortstop is heading to New York!
Mets fans woke up to a nice surprise. Meanwhile, Giants fans are down bad.
Rise and shine!

How does this even happen? It was previously confirmed Carlos Correa would be signing with San Francisco. Then, just six days later he’s signing a deal with the Mets. This has been a brutal offseason for the Giants. Especially when they also experienced the “Arson” Judge blunder as well.
Aaron Judge was a Giant for 6 minutes.

As you can imagine. The MLB world is torching the Giants online for missing out on both Aaron Judge and Carlos Correa.

This has to be one of the most annoying offseasons for this franchise and fanbase. I mean, they were in the thick of it to sign multiple big-name stars. Instead, the team is walking away empty-handed. The lack of star power might mean San Francisco is going to endure another long year of bad baseball.
