Carlos Correa continues to be a clown

Houston has no idea how to handle this cheating scandal

A couple of days after Carlos Correa told Cody Bellinger to “shut the f--- up” after the Dodger star dared to call out the Astros for their rampant cheating, Correa somehow managed to come off as an even bigger clown on Monday morning.

Correa it turns out, the de facto spokesman of the cheating Astros, is done talking about the cheating Astros.

Unfortunately for Correa, and his Astro colleagues, that’s not how it works. When you commit malfeasance on a widespread and systematic scale (and get caught), you no longer control the narrative. The old proverbial horse, as they say, is out of the barn. Way out of the barn.

The questions will keep coming, each time they land in a new city or a new opponent comes to town.

The Astros don’t have the Dodgers on the docket during the season to come, which is either really good or really bad, depending on your perspective. If you like content, it's bad, very bad.

After Bellinger, whose Dodgers lost the 2017 World Series to the Astros, aimed his lance at Houston, saying Jose Altuve "stole" the MVP from Aaron Judge, Correa weighed in. The arrogance of the Astro shortstop, to bluster about the "facts," the facts of a CHEATING SCANDAL, is embarassing.

The Yankees will be in Houston for a three-game set starting May 15. And the Astros visit New York for a four-game set beginning Sept. 21.
