Things just hit the proverbial wall with superstar Juan Soto — if you believe the rumors that he just rejected the largest single contact in MLB history at $440 million. That contract would be $14 million more than the greatest player of this century, Mike Trout.
What happens from here with Soto and his future with this team is unknown. He could be traded, play out the final 2 ½ years of his contract with the Nats, or more negotiations could eventually get an extension done. But for now, it feels like the former and not the latter. Normally we get Soto bombs, and today a bombshell.
There’s a game to be played today, and it happens to be Juan Soto Star Wars Day.
