Carlos Correa: “What doesn’t sit well with me is when you say false statements. If you don’t know the facts or you’re not informed – this is America, Ken [Rosenthal], you can say whatever you want, but Cody Bellinger’s job is to look for information, get informed, and know the facts for sure before he stands in front of cameras to talk about other players. You should be informed and get informed before you talk about other players. If you don’t know the facts then you got to shut the f*ck up.”
Houston Astros All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa had some unexpectedly brutal comments for Los Angeles Dodgers MVP Cody Bellinger, in a rare public blast that resembled a WWE backstage promo.
Days after Bellinger memorably called out the Astros for their now-infamous sign-stealing scandal, saying that no one in the league respects the Astros players anymore, and that they ‘stole’ World Series titles from the Dodgers, Correa fired back in a huge way to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal, literally telling the reigning MVP to ‘SHUT THE F*CK UP’, and to ‘get informed’ before he ever goes in front of a camera again ripping the Astros.
The Astros, of course, have become one of the biggest storylines of the decade as the sign-stealing fallout continues to put an asterisk on their 2017 World Series title, as the team is enveloped in one of the biggest cheating scandals in sports history.
