The New York Mets made an absolute stunning move and signing the early morning hours of Wednesday this week.  After everyone thought that Carlos Correa was officially a San Francisco Giant, he suddenly became a New York Met.  Correa agreed on a 12 year $315 million contract to presumably play third base for the Mets.  He is currently 28 years old and is a terrific shortstop who had a great career with the Houston Astros and a brief stint with the Minnesota Twins.  He is great defensively and also provides great offense at the plate as well.  Correa is very clutch in the postseason and brings veteran experience which will only help the Mets.  Below is my quick take on this from The Times Union:
The gifts keep on coming for New York Mets fans, and thanks to owner Steve Cohen the Mets are in prime position to win the World Series in 2023. His crazy spending this off season reminds me of former Yankee Owner George Steinbrenner when money just didn't matter. The Mets will put a glorified All Star on the field next season with Mets fans expecting a great season. On paper, the Mets are the best team in baseball.

I will put in on record now and say that the New York Mets will win the 2023 World Series.  They have so much talent to begin with in addition to bringing in Justin Verlander and now Carlos Correa.  It will be very fun to watch this Mets team during the 2023 season.
