Astros renew Correa and Bregman

Minor news but they did play nice by giving Correa $1 M and Bregman gets a tiny boost up to $599.

Petriello: Bregman’s split-second call preserves shutout

With apologies to Judge, this is the defensive play everyone not named Sterling and Suzyn will remember.

...Given the risk involved, and the fact that Bregman was already facing home plate and would have needed to turn his body to throw back to second, he made the right decision.

That’s in part because of past experience. Speaking to FS1’s postgame show, Bregman referenced a similar opportunity against the Angels on Sept. 24, except that time, he did try for two. It didn’t go well, as he got the runner at second but not the hitter, and the run scored. The Astros lost that game, 7-5.

“Ten games before the end of the regular season, we had a similar play, and I tried to turn a double play and we didn’t get the guy at first base,” Bregman said. “I told myself, and I talked to [manager A.J. Hinch and bench coach Alex Cora], we thought in the playoffs in a close game, it would be smart to try and get the lead runner. We were fortunate enough to put it on the cash, and McCann made a great tag.”
