WILL THE FUTURE BLAME US? Correa wrote in a first-person piece for SOLECOLLECTOR.com in which the Astros SS noted the game is "beautiful, classic, traditional and…stuck in the past." Correa said, "We’ve romanticized the game's past so much that we’ve forgotten about its future. ... These unwritten rules are responsible for trying to kill our fans’ favorable perception of the game that we love. They strangle the passion and creativity of some of our sports most exciting athletes, all for the fear of breaking those unwritten rules." He added, "I was happy to see Commissioner Manfred’s recent comments regarding players expressing themselves being good for the game. He understands the game needs to get younger and more exciting and he knows he’ll be able to rely on the 'great generation of young stars coming into the game.'" Correa wrote there is a "fine line between playing the game respectfully and being disrespectful of your opponent, but I believe the fans love flair and that is what they come to see at the ballpark -- the show” (SOLECOLLECTOR.com, 4/4).
