    I would prefer if the comparison was with Alex Rodriguez. Jeter was never the hitter A-Rod was in his prime and some would still contend he was a better fielder at SS that Jeter when both were SS’s. Jeter was great and a Hall of Famer for sure, but Correa appears to have more power and even a stronger hitting potential. (Tough to say for a 3000 hit guy like Jeter, but A-Rod (PEDs aside) is the comparison I like best. As for demeanor you can compare Correa to Jeter all day. Both seem to have it right!

  2. Bob Dorrill Says:

    Last night during the Al Star selection show the broadcasters pretty much agreed that the best shortstop in the American League right now is Carlos Correa. Heady stuff.

  3. Mark W Says:

    Agree with Greg. Jeter may have been faster afoot. I confess I feel a little silly comparing two barely 21 year-old guys after 15 and 24 games, two decades apart. Correa is one of those rare players who gets you excited to watch. I haven’t seen too much of his defense yet, but he’s already got a few highlight reel dazzlers under his belt. The trick: STAY HEALTHY! (Are you listening Mr. Springer? Duck. Wear body armor. Don’t crash into walls. Stretch those muscles.)

  4. Patrick Lopez Says:

    Greg is correct ,Correa and Alex are more alike in their talents ,both are physically close in abilities, when Correa comes to bat during a game on tv , it is hard to turn away, ,if you do you will miss something,there is a certain drama in his at bats
