#2- George Springer

We are very grateful George Springer decided to pack his things and move north of the border to Toronto in 2021 after seven years in Houston with the Astros.

For years, Springer was a nuisance for the Texas Rangers and their fans, with many of the same clutch hitting ability and delivering heartbreaking moments much like Correa. He’s also a former cheater.

In his career, Springer’s .862 OPS against the Rangers has made him an easy target of fan hate, and that also happens to be his highest OPS against any team.

Though Texas will only see Springer seven or eight times a season instead of 19 when he was with the Astros, it’s not likely we’ll just forget all the damage he’s done in his career against the Rangers. And as long as he’s still in the American League, we’ll never be fond of him.
