    The line of 29 for Correa home runs is so far from what he'll get that the line is a dot to him.

    ""Correa has the physical talent of a young A-Rod, and the makeup and character of Jeter," the scout said. "He will be the face of baseball because his personality is incredible. He's not as good as Trout and Harper yet and doesn't have the track record, but he will be right up there. He has as much talent as they do.""

    He's truly a phenom, and a very impressive first decision by Luhnow and crew. Just hoping he can stay healthy as his ability is just off the charts insane.

    Per ESPN

    Correa is the youngest AL player with a 4-hit / 2-HR game since 1955.

    These stats are fun at first but then become largely trite & meaningless...

    PER BASEBALL FACTS

    Correa is the youngest player to :

    -sneeze at home plate in Yankee Stadium since 1955
    -get a ball lobbed over his head by a Yankees pitcher since 1935
    -fart while rounding third base (youngest ever actually )
    -call the home plate umpire "papi" in Yankee Stadium since 1979
    -hit a home run-single- home run--single...in that order! since 1983
    -keep his foot on the bag whilst sliding into second going 19 mph (but not 20 mph, someone else did that at a younger age) since 1991
    -itch his crotch while standing at 1B and yell "my mind is bulletproof!" since 1919
