The 2020 season has had its' share of casualties. And Soto is one of them.
The national press attention for Soto this season has been tame in comparison to the GaGa Fest they're throwing for Fernando Tatis Jr this season, who's on a playoff team. But his #'s are inferior to Soto's, and he's got better protection around him in the lineup than Soto. If the Nats were playoff bound, Juan would get more consideration for MVP. Even if Ozuna beats him out, the voting results would be much closer.
Juan was 100% classy during the PG interview yesterday. Singled out Kevin Long in gratitude for what he's accomplished.
If these were "normal times", and after the season he's had, cant imagine Boras would START at nothing less than $30m per year/14 years minimum for an extension.
