Carlos Correa worked out for the Chicago Cubs before the Houston Astros used the No. 1 pick on him nine years ago.

Now Correa is poised to hit the free agent market as the youngest of a group shortstops that will be available.

Correa stressed that he wants to win, while the Cubs traded away a number of important pieces at this year\'s deadline. Would that take Chicago out of the running for his services?

\"Obviously, I\'m focused on winning a championship with the Astros,\" Correa said. \"But I\'ve heard a lot of players talk about how great it is to play at Wrigley Field. And I\'ve never gotten to play there at the major-league level yet. Actually, a lot of players say it’s the best stadium to play at.\"

But does that still apply after the roster purge?

\"When they traded everybody, and then you look at the couple games after that, it was still sold out,\" Correa said. \"I was, like, these fans are great. So yeah.\"
