After Carlos Correa’s ordeal for Giants, short-sighted Brandon Crawford in 2023: ‘I’m happy’

The most decorated shortstop in San Francisco Giants history, Brandon Crawford may have the right to be critical in the wake of Carlos Correa’s stance following the organization’s $350 million offer for a man who would take over. On Friday, however, Crawford characteristically took the high road in his comments to The Chronicle.

In a wild series of events early this week with Correa’s prospective signing to the Giants, the team notified Crawford that he was moving to another position, only to have Correa’s offer taken off the table due to an issue with his physical exam.

That made Crawford, a four-time Gold Glover Award winner, three-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion — and the player who finished fourth in National League MVP voting two years ago — the Giants’ stopping point again.

Admittedly, he was surprised by the circumstances, and Crawford was willing to adapt accordingly.

“The bottom line is, my feelings in all of this really don’t matter,” he said via text. “Was I a little surprised when you found out about the agreement? Yes, absolutely.

“Are you more surprised to learn that (Corea) didn’t sign with us and sign with the Mets? Absolutely. We would have been a better team with a player of his caliber no matter my league.”
