The San Francisco Giants have their starting shortstop for the next decade…and beyond.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the Giants and Carlos Correa agreed to a massive 13-year, $350 million contract that will keep the 28-year-old in the Bay Area through the 2035 season. It’s the second-largest contract handed out this offseason, only behind the deal that reigning AL MVP Aaron Judge signed with the Yankees earlier this month. For Correa, the deal is proof positive that the bet he made on himself last offseason was the right move. For the Giants, it’s a deal made in the hopes that Correa can be the piece that helps them get back to the postseason, something they’ve only done twice in the last eight seasons since winning their last World Series in 2014. It’s a deal that will almost inevitably become burdensome at some point down the road, but even if Correa can win one World Series in San Fran, then it will have all been worth it.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. In the history of MLB, 27 players have hit 13 or more home runs in the postseason over the course of their careers, including Correa, who has 18 on his resume. So with that in mind, how many can you name in six minutes?
