OK, what's the correct pronunciation? May-lee? Mah-lee? Mal-as-in-Cal-lee?

I believe it's Mal- E. That seems to be the concensus.

Arraez has been hitting a ton of lazy fly balls as of late.

Yep, a lot of pop ups, his launch angle is out of whack right now.

Disgusting bottom 1. seven pitches. 3 weak swings.

 

 

 

I'll say it: Correa's had a disappointing year.  I don't know about anyone else here, but I expected more.  Houston is a band box, and Correa was benefitting from playing in perhaps the best hitter's park outside of NYY.  He's good, but not as good as advertised that's for sure.

Yeah, and he's really struggling rn too, when they really need him.

Of all the parks Ive been to the only nice thing I can say about Houston's is the hotel we stayed at was within easy walking distance

He's certainly not hitting like he's done in the past, or can, but he's playing a great short. I agree though...it sure would be nice to see him smack the ball around and drive in some runs.

Banging on the trash can didn't hurt either.

Overall, he was a solid part of a great lineup, but it's not like he carried the team. In the Twins' lineup, he needs to carry the team too often and I don't think he is that good.

He doesn't have guys like Altuve, Bregman, Gurriel, Tucker, etc  in the lineup, either.
