The Out of Town Scoreboard / Re: Juan Soto, Yankee

Ultimately Soto should be directing his agent, not the other way around. But it sure seems like Boras wants to use Soto to get himself a record-setting contract in the wake of this past year's debacles.

Not terrible this year: .287   .388   .774, and just hit his first HR.

They might be able to work with Daytona to run Daytona on Presidents Day and the SB on Sunday. Daytona is a day time race (in theory). They'd lose the option of running it a day late if there's weather. Maybe a better day would be the Saturday of Pres weekend

They've run it on entirely different weekends before...I'm guessing that will be their preference...

Race week isn't just the 500...you have every series from ARCA on up during Speedweek.  The ARCA race is when I saw Danica Patrick make her stock car racing debut.  She packed the place...

Jared Jones and Paul Skenes as well. James Wood would have to play out of his mind to even be in the consideration.
oh the irony if Skenes is RotY. Pittsburgh would lose 1/4 of a year of control. He's hit the FA market after 2029. I imagine him and Jones might split votes.

Heyman says Soto has turned down seven different extension offers

https://x.com/BRWalkoff/status/1793360599176433848

He was quoted as saying he doesn't make that decision, so it's a bit unfair to say that "Soto" turned down 7 extension offers...Boras turned them down...

I agree with Welch as we are old-timers and not at all with GataNats. Rosario is the only position player that was acquired in Rizzo's quest for flippable players at the deadline who will garner any return close to what Candy got for us last season.  Gallo returns nothing as he will be out of the majors next year. Senzel will be Dickersoned and Winker may get us a Jordan Barley.
You never know. Remember how bad Jon Lester was. And it was his last year. And got us Lane Thomas. On the other hand Schwarber got a nobody. It’s hard to predict.

Saw Lane Thomas in Harrisburg last night. He came to the plate 3 times, drawing one walk, hitting a line drive to shallow right which was caught, and finally, hitting a solid double. I didn’t see any sign of him favoring the knee, and he looked fine running at full speed to get the double. He also looked to have no trouble fielding.


We may be seeing him back on the Nats soon.

The consensus on the site is tomorrow and replacing Robles.

In the spirit of this thread, I take it that both of you are saying max what we have already in house now, then look up at some point and see  if we  are in contention for the WC a bit later in the year?
