Carlos Correa stopped by Marvel's offices to hang out with Rocket Raccoon and Groot

I am Groot. I am Groot? I. AM. Groot! 

Sorry, for those that don't speak sentient extraterrestrial tree, I'll translate: After the release of "Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2" and with the Astros in New York to take on the Yankees, Carlos Correa stopped by the Marvel Entertainment offices to hang out with Groot: 

Fun fact: @teamcjcorrea's named his dog Groot. �� Thanks for stopping by Marvel HQ! @astrosbaseball

Of course, Correa also hangs out with Groot every day -- because that's the name of the shortstop's adorable puppy

Groot wants to be just like his dad⚾️�� Groot quiere ser como su papá ⚾️��

More adorable than a talking tree? It's close but ... yes. 

"What's up ladies?" �� -Groot

Correa, perhaps picking up some super powers during his visit, hit a two-run homer in his very first at-bat of the night -- helping the Astros to a 3-2 victory.
