I will be very curious what they do with Seager.  Only one of them can play shortstop.  If they re-sign Seager, then does Trea go someplace where he can play short?  Or does Justin Turner retire and Cory Seager move to 3rd and Trea go to short?  Or, in a twist, if JT retires, do they sign Cory this year and Kyle next?

Who would play 2B for the Dodgers if Seager is at SS and JT does not retire .

I can’t wait to see Soto try and steal home next year.

Or Lux, probably in some combination depending on the mix-and-match positional carousel.

Has anyone ever turned down an extension that would be a he biggest guarantee in the history of the sport at the time?  I find it hard to believe that boras would turn down 15/$500M and if he did I would imagine Soto would tel him to look at those dollars.  Rizzo wants to win.  Soto is not an idiot.  He loves baseball and knows that the best contenders are sustainable.  To create a sustainable contender you need prospects and org depth.  It would be irresponsible for Soto to view a 2-3 year rebuild as phoning it in and not trying to win long-term.

So who do we get from the Dodgers in a trade?  :hysterical:
I actually thought maybe Soto went to LA to bring Max back to DC.
