Astros’ Carlos Correa leaves game with toe discomfort

Astros All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa left Monday night’s 6-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles with discomfort in his left big toe, the team said.

Correa was replaced by J.D. Davis at the start of the third inning after lining out in his first at-bat.

Correa said after the game that he had precautionary tests done on the toe after fouling a ball off his left foot Sunday. There’s no structural or bone damage, but it has a lot of pooled blood.

During Monday’s game, he said he irritated the area and felt pain while fielding a ball in the second inning, leading to his removal. Manager AJ Hinch said he’s considered day-to-day.

Davis liked what he heard and asked if the information to be compiled into an academic report.

Are you kidding Bernhard said with a smile. I’m a nerdy academic.

Bernhard assembled what he described as dream team of co-authors: a respected Nevada gaming attorney, a state senator and former chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board and a top economic expert on the global gaming industry.

But despite Garoppolo’s success a year ago, we’re still talking about a quarterback who has started all of seven games in his career. Sure, he won them all—but seven games is seven games.

McKinnon is a talented young running back, but he has never been the season-long focus of a team’s ground game. San Francisco’s receiving corps is good but not great. Ditto for an offensive line that Football Outsiders ranked 11th in run blocking and 18th in pass protection in 2017.

The late-season surge that made Jimmy G rich did more than just offer up hope for 2018. It also ramped up expectations about how quickly this rebuilding 49ers team could contend.

The Colts were always going to be likely to trade out of the third spot, given the presence of Andrew Luck and the likelihood that another team would want to move up for one of the quarterback prospects in this year’s draft. The dream would have been a haul with multiple first-round picks, but unless the Colts were willing to wait until the draft and run the risk of not getting an offer at all, this was the next-best thing.patriots_110
