ESPN is saying that Correa pissed hot.
And now he's going to the Mets for a slightly shorter, smaller deal of 12 years and $315 million.
Steve Cohen has a lot more money than common sense.
Some "sources" are saying it was simply Correa's decision to change course.

The Mets and Padres are competing to see who can spend more to watch the World Series from home.
Living on Long Island again, I will get to watch this first hand. Plan on going to as many Mets games as I can this year.
Trevor Bauer reinstated after suspension cut to 194 games. The Dodgers have 14 days to decide whether they'll reinstate him onto their 40-man roster. His original contract has him signed through 2023 with $32 million owed for next season.
Should I like Daulton Varsho? Am I right to think they should've traded Kirk and his body type instead?
This is a very strange trade. Varsho's a slap hitter who strikes out a ton and has a little speed, and has some versatility because he can play both outfield and catch. But the Blue Jays gave up a lot, including a top-5 prospect in all of baseball.
Mets have issue with Correa’s physical…
Noooo!!!! The team with this guy as their team doc?
The Braves sign Sean Murphy to a 7 / 63 deal.
Seriously, Anthopoulos is a wizard. The entire Braves core lineup is signed through 2026 - 2028, for below-market money.
Ten umpires are retiring, the most since 1999. The lineup: Ted Barrett, Greg Gibson, Tom Hallion, Sam Holbrook, Jerry Meals, Jim Reynolds, Bill Welke, Marty Foster, Paul Nauert and Tim Timmons.
You may recall Tom Hallion for doing a Frank Drebin act for his strike three calls:
Jerry Meals was the umpire for Kerry Wood's 20-strikeout game and gave him like four inches off the plate, glove-side.
You may also recall Meals from one of the worst calls in history because he wanted to go back to the hotel:
Several guys have said they wanted to play for a team that was going to have a consistent roster for several years. We certainly have that now. It's quite the change from a team who would regularly bring in ancient pitchers and outfielders every year.
Rafael Devers and the Red Sox agree to an 11-year, $331 million extension.
Per The Athletic, the Mets and Carlos Correa still remain far apart in their disagreement over his medicals. The Mets are reportedly pushing for large provisions pertaining to playing time / time spent on the injured list, while Correa's camp is holding firm on a fully guaranteed deal. There's still a large possibility that the two sides walk away, and reportedly multiple teams--including the Twins--are ready to swoop in if Correa is willing to accept a shorter deal with a higher annual average value.
The Dodgers have cut ties with Trevor Bauer.
The really sad part is, some team will pick him up. There's always at least one team
Took them fucking long enough.
If the Giants and Mets are gonna keep squabbling over Carlos Correa...why don't they share him?
One takes North Correa, the other South Correa
