    70’s and 80’s were weak decades for all time greats. Not sure why. Wonder if it had something to do with WW2. Birthrates down from men being gone half the decade?

    And that’s sort of my point. You have to research. None of those guys were Cobb, Ruth, Gehrig, Williams, Mays/mantle, Bonds, early Griffey, AROD or Trout

    Without an further research, Rickey's 8.1 WAR average from 80-89 (not including his '90 MVP season) is...unbeatable?

    Your point is a good one, there were lots of great players in the 80's, but no legends. I said Schmidt forgetting that he spent a good chunk of his best years in the 70's. I hated him, but I loved watching him play 3B.

    I was thinking about the statement that he "didn't play like an MVP". He sure as hell did when he played, he just didn't play enough. I think we're on the same page here.

    .320/.400/.566/.966 with 18 home runs in mid-July is certainly an MVP caliber type of first half.

    I would assume we all suspected/knew all of that, but still a little nervous about what's going on with him. He came out and they acted like no big deal, then moved to "DL as a precaution" and now no real update other than the obvious, not playing (since he wasn't even doing baseball activities) he's going to need a rehab but no real word on what the heck is going on.

    Yeah, I'm a little worried it could be a lingering back problem... hoping it's not.

    I'm hoping for the best, but maybe this is why the Astros are so closely linked to Jose Abreu.

    Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Sunday that the team still doesn't have a rehab plan for Carlos Correa (back).

    The hope had been that Correa would be ready to begin a rehab assignment over the All-Star break, but that's not going to happen. "He's not doing anything aggressively on the field that would warrant a plan in place to send him out [on rehab]," Hinch said. Of the possibility that Correa could return sometime during the club's July 20-25 road trip, the manager said, "I certainly can’t rule him in. I’m not going to rule him out." It's obviously not an encouraging update on the status of Correa, whose game readiness keeps getting pushed back. He's been sidelined since late June with lower back soreness.

    I'm afraid something is really bad wrong with Correa's back.

    23 year olds usually dont have back troubles that keep them out for a month.

    Wonder if the new wife is the cause of those back troubles? LOL

    The way Carlos Correa Works out, he power lifts that's for sure. Carlos has been playing baseball since around 7 years old almost 16 years of playing baseball.That is a lot.

    Well, I asked this on June 28:

    "At what point do I get worried about Correa's back?"

    The answer is "as I was reading J.R.'s post." Hopefully they're just being extra super cautious.

    Ok, now in worried. No need to rush, but injuries that are ongoing like this often end up in surgery.

    Also Hinch yesterday, not as much doom and gloom as I gleaned from the other:

    "He's going to continue to do a few things behind the scenes, but no definitive timetable yet on when he can get out to a rehab assignment," Hinch said. "We hope it's soon, but it's not planned out yet. … He's a key part of our best team, and that's why we want to make sure he's healthy when he gets back and not rush him, but yet not give any days away."

    At first I was thinking just a stained muscle. Now, I'm wondering if it's a disc problem.

    There's no larger boogeyman in professional sports than the phrase "back issues".

    He could be back in a few weeks and we never here about it again. However we've seen it so many times across all sports when a back issue becomes a chronic problem, so it's a little alarming.

    I mean...he is only 23.

    Disc issues? That can derail a career?

    My best friend played for a major college and was a starting LT looking at a certain NFL career. A Ruptured disc later and he is currently living in a ward in Houston barely making it by.

    Serious stuff in a sport that involves extreme core strength and torque flexibility.
