Astros Carlos Correa: Week 17 Silver Star Winner


What a week of Houston Astros baseball!

With all of the events that transpired this week, there were many peaks and valleys, ups-and-downs as well as climaxes and cliffhangers!

My head was spinning as far as all of the things that were happening for the Astros!

And you know what?

They were all positive for this team!

Over the past few seasons, at this point, we’d be wondering who the Astros were going to call up in September to give the club a jolt during the home stretch of September.

We had already knew we weren’t playing much past then so that’s all we had to look forward to.

Let’s fast-forward to the present…

Now us fans are wondering HOW LONG we’ll be playing past September!

It’s a great feeling, isn’t it?

It definitely works for me!

The slew of rumors about who the Astros were targeting were serving up plenty of information to digest on a proverbial hot, cast-iron stove as well.

They rescued Scott Kazmir.

They commandeered Carlos Gomez.

They even found a way to make a squeeze play for Mike Fiers to help with the pitching.

That was compounded on top of glorious sweep of the Los Angeles Angels in a mid-week three-game set.

Although this week involved a 3-3 split with a couple of losses to the Kansas City Royals and the one last night to the Arizona Diamondbacks, this team’s compass is set for the right direction.

Games will be lost, that’s just a fact of matter but I’d love to see a team — particularly my Astros — go 162-0.

But we all know that feat is tougher to overcome than trying to crack the Da Vinci Code.

Quite difficult if you ask me and I see that never happening.

    But there’s one guy that continues to exceeds all of our expectations and will certainly be part of the Astros’ future for years to come.

    Because of this, excellence deserves to be recognized — today on that type of basis continuously, we will honor an individual player that made the most impact in helping the team, despite whether it resulted in a win or a loss.

    We’ve dubbed it House of Houston Silver Star Award

    And this week’s Silver Star Award goes to…

    Carlos Correa!

    This kid is so sensational, that I tend to forget that he’s only 20-years-old!

    When the Astros need a spark, there he is making some spectacular play on defense or hitting some bomb out into the far-reaches of a ballpark, catapulting his team closer to a win.

    Did you see his amazing turn to Chris Carter at first base last Saturday against the Royals?

    Did you see his homer into Crawford Boxes last night?

    Correa has given us quite an appetizer and he’s teasing us as far as to when he’s going to serve up the main course!

    In other words, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

    I can’t even fathom what he’ll do in the postseason to which all signs are pointing to the Astros clinching their first playoff berth in 10 seasons!

    He just needs to stay the course and keep it up!

    I have no doubt that he will!

    For the week, Correa batted .318, with seven hits, three ribbies, two homers and one double through six games and 22 at-bats.

    His OPS was an admirable .996.
