"soto" Discussed on Climate Connections
"I'm doctor Anthony Liz, and this is climate connections. As seas rise, city officials in Miami Beach, Florida need to answer some tough questions, like when to stop permitting new development near the shore, and how much to elevate roads. So policymakers want residents to understand how climate change is affecting their city and provide input on how to respond. They felt that art could very much be the perfect conduit. And so that was the task that was given to me. Miso Soto was Miami Beach's first ever art and public life resident. For a year Soto spent time with city officials, learning how sea level rise is affecting Miami Beach and how the city plans to manage the rising tides. Then they made art to engage others on the topic. Soda says some of Miami Beach was originally too wet to build on, so low lying areas were filled in and sand was added to the beaches. But now the city must manage erosion and flooding. So when one project Soto built an amphitheater out of sandbags, then the space was used for lectures and other events. In order to create dialog and really like spur attention onto how we got here in the first place. And then from there I felt that then we could finally move forward and kind of address the current situation the now.

"Interesting case because listen, this isn't about whether or not someone's rights to get vaccinated or not get vaccinated. This is about whether or not this guy is going to be able to play in October. And at the end of the day, the Blue Jays look like they're going to be making the playoffs. So if the Yankees go ahead and pick up Andrew Ben attende and they lose an Andrew Ben attende in October for roughly two high impact games that say, you know, let's say hypothetically they lost these games. Cashman is going to look so much worse than the royals looked last week when this whole announcement came out. It's not even be funny. I mean, he'll be fired before the game ends. Well, you know, this is not the George Steinbrenner era. So, you know, I do think they'll make that trade contingent upon a vaccination for been intended. I can't imagine they'll make that trade and then hope that he gets vaccinated. I don't see that happening. If he doesn't, does that just limit been attending to being a nationally trade target like to the San Diego Padres, who he has kind of been linked to and I know AJ probably loves him some Andrew Ben it's ending. Yeah, you know, you hear Milwaukee, there are certain teams that do need offensives hitting up in storm. He's a good defensive player. He's got some postseason pedigree. You know, he's going to be traded somewhere vaccinated or unvaccinated. He's that good at player. You know, looking throughout the league of horse obviously all eyes on Soto and I do have one more soda question. What are you hearing is going to be the actual asking questions. I mean, we've heard rumors of what they're asking price could be. We've heard rumors about potential packages that have been put together, but nothing really concrete. What are you kind of gathering or thinking this could be, or what are you hearing that this could be? You know, I think it's going to be four or 5 top prospects or good young players at the major league level. You know, and I don't begrudge them asking anything. You know, one sort of certainly answer quite a bit in this negotiations, and I don't blame them. He's that type of player. And certainly in trade with three years to go or two and a half, three playoff runs, they should ask for a ton. There aren't these type of players who are traded. I know Ron darling named one on our podcast with the post Lance then I can't remember who it is, but you know there are just so few outstanding players who are in their mid to early 20s. Do I came up with or baby Ruth and Miguel Cabrera and they were both close to 25. You know, he's not going to say he's Babe Ruth, but he's 23. You know, he's younger than those two. He's certainly nobody's Ruth, but you know, I think Miguel Cabrera is a fair comp who was a year and a half older than Soto and you know that trade did not work out for the Marlins. They got maybe who I love. He's Yankee broadcaster and, you know, does some good work. He broadcast thing and had a decent career and they got Andrew Miller wound up having a very good career elsewhere not with Miami and big top. You know, if they get that come for Juan Soto, that is a disaster. Sorry. You know, they're going to have to get better than that. And I do think they're going to someone's going to pay the piper pay four or 5 big time young players for this guy who is one of the best players in the game.

"They ultimately decided, you know, maybe we'll look at moncada instead of soda, but he identified so very quickly. He loves Soto, he certainly is going to give it a shot. You know, I think, you know, cardinals, Padres, probably the Dodgers are probably the more likely candidates to land Soto, the Mariners, possibilities as well. You know, I know the Yankees are going to be trying to get Soto. I'm not sure they have the right prospect mix and of course the mets in that same division. To me there are launch out at this point, but I see San Diego doing what it can and San Diego does have the prospects as you mentioned, even without core, they've got James wood. It was an outfielder, people have compared it to a next the next Willie mccovey type, so that's pretty darn good. Obviously got CJ Abrams and they have some other high end young players. I think it may come down to San Diego's higher end guys versus St. Louis's sure things. You know, they've got several guys who've already been called up and doing a pretty good job at the major league level between Dylan Carlson and beater and certainly Nolan Gorman. They also have mason win and walker and seamless it's got some prospects, many position projects, more than pitching prospects at this point. And frankly, the nets need position play oftentimes, teams will love to get the pictures, but in this case, I don't think that that's would be upset to go with a good position package, but certainly young players, prospects for most teams in the case of St. Louis. I think they're look at these major league players and, you know, I do see that as a possibility, but the difference between St. Louis and San Diego is saying to you means a bat St. Louis needs pitching more than a bag. That was particularly with Matt's going down, you know, joining flaherty on the IL now coming up. So, you know, I think St. Louis needs pitching more than a bat. Yeah, I would agree with that as well on top of that. I kind of feel the same way about the Dodgers. And it's not that the Dodgers need pitching, but they definitely don't need more offense, but adding a one soda to any team is never a unwanted or unwelcome thing. I just think that the Padres really could use Juan Soto right now. Not only Justin now in general. I mean, to app bolster that offense, but if they get many Machado, I mean, they have Manny Machado, but they get Fernando Tatís Jr. back as well. That three headed monster offensively, all of a sudden looks unbeatable between Manny Machado Juan Soto and Fernando Tatís Jr.. I'm excited to see where this is going, but my question for you is, is this kind of holding up the market just this wand Soto Specter kind of hovering over the entire trade market. Our team's waiting to see what happens there before they make other moves or teams just going to go ahead and just start spending, making the moves now and just knowing where one, so it will end up in one of three or four teams. Yeah, I mean, it might be holding up part of the market. I do think that the market for these big players usually in most players usually comes down to the last 48 hours, you know, sometimes if they need a physical, it might take the last 72 hours, but all these trades come down to the end. We have so many teams that are kind of in the middle of the fence, if you will, you know, between Texas, Miami, Boston, which we referenced, maybe even the Giants and the White Sox. So you're not sure at this point where they're going to be buyers or sellers, and you know, I think teams kind of like to wait till the end to see whether they should buy or should sell. So, you know, I'm not going to blame the holdup if there is one Soto, but certainly could be part of the equation because those bigger teams, Padres, Dodgers, mets, you know, they may still be holding out some hope for Soto before going in full blazes for a bell's really good hitters. I want soda but really good hitter or Mancini or some of these other guys. You know, I love that idea. But there is one player I feel like his trade market has been held up by Soto. And what do you think of this idea that we're not going to find out where Andrew Ben attende is going to go until we know where Juan Soto is going? You know, been in attendee is an interesting case. You know, he has not been vaccinated as far as we know. He wouldn't address it at the All-Star Game. He has red hot. I'm hitting he and Austin Riley are two guys. I think there might be one other hitting over 400 over the last month in a lot of things, including the Yankees. I think the Yankees, you know, if he's unvaccinated, they can't, they're not going to take them because they still have to play Toronto. They may face them in the playoffs, but you know, been attending wouldn't dress it. So maybe he will get vaccinated. You know, if depending on what team he is traded to, I just think he's the best in case one we haven't seen before. He can use that unvaccinated status as a de facto no trade clause. If he doesn't, for instance, and I don't know that it's a big case of Toronto, which is a team that's shown interest in him, trades for him. He could say, well, I'm not vaccinated, guys. And at that point, he can't certainly can't go to Toronto effects. You know, the Yankees may have to think about it and be like vaccinated, but I don't think from what I understand, they'll take them unvaccinated. They think that, you know, somebody like that will get vaccinated if it's a matter of going to the Yankees. Yankees had a couple players unvaccinated couple weeks before they went to Toronto and they got vaccinated because they wanted to play for the team and give the Yankees credit. They've gotten their guys vaccinated and able to play in Toronto and I think they feel that way about Ben and Jenny too. Not that they know him, not that they know for sure they're not in contact with them, but certainly will be an interesting case. Very interesting case because listen, this isn't about whether or not someone's rights to get vaccinated or not get vaccinated. This is about whether or not this guy is going to be able to play in October.

"You could see him everywhere, and they'll be network New York Post. You name it he's there John Heyman, John. How you been, man. It's been way too long since I've heard your lovely, lovely voice, or we got to talk a lot of baseball trade deadline coming up, man. Well, I'm not sure how lovely it is, but great to talk to you, Cody, and let's get with it. Yeah, let's do it. The first domino has officially dropped and it's going to the Met Daniel vogelbach or as I like to refer to him as Vogel unit just the most awesome player I love to play against or see play. He's just, he hammers right, he's he's a good platoon player. He's got some serious pop. Obviously it's not going to be the last move the mets are going to make or try to make I should really say who knows who they actually end up with, but your thoughts on this vocal block move and the first domino to fall in the trade deadline with all the names that are starting to be bantered around. Yeah, I mean, they needed a hitter and quick and they got one. So I give them credit, you know, vocal buck will or vocal back. If you prefer, we'll fit in nicely. They needed that left handed DH, obviously Don Smith had not done what he had done a couple of years ago with the team. You know, they try to start it with Robinson Cano. It looked like the mets had a lot of DHS to begin the year and really none of them have really produced Pete Alonso give him credit. He's doing it alone in that middle of that lineup and vocal back will help there's still looking for another middle of the order bat though and I'm sure that they will get it eventually. And there are names out there. Especially seeing how the Red Sox have started their second half a couple of names in the Red Sox are being thrown around the mets of interest and what are you hearing about the idea of JD Martinez potentially being moved. And if so, is there another team that would be as high on him as the mets would be? Well, like the idea of JD Martinez, there's nothing concrete yet. We don't know that the Red Sox are going to be a seller. They're kind of in that middle ground right now. I would not be surprised if they do sell. So add them to the list, the list is pretty good. Obviously, Josh bell, they've talked about Trey Mancini they talked about. You've got Nelson Cruz, you got CJ Crone, you know, Wilson Contreras, potentially in hep there are a lot of good hitters on the market that's one thing that there is supply another thing, of course, is bullpen, but certainly there are hitters starting pitching in short supply, but the mets of fortunate, they don't look like they're going to need starting pitching. They do look like they need to hit her and they do look like they need bullpen. So it's falling into place nicely for them, although right now they've not been able to make a deal on pill or they've tried for yet and Mancini we're not sure that he's going to be traded at this point, Baltimore has been a little bit of a surprise. So give them credit and, you know, with no guarantee he will be dealt, but I think it's still a pretty good chance that he will be dealt. Yeah, you mentioned that Baltimore. I mean, they're currently 48 and 48. They're three and a half out of a wild card spot. And we're even talking about the Red Sox. You just mentioned the Red Sox are potentially a team that could be sellers. They're kind of on the fence and whether or not they're going to be sellers or not. And they are only up a half game on the Orioles. So that's why I'm a little surprised that the Orioles seem to be hot on moving Mancini. Do you think that's going to happen or do you think the Orioles might be willing to throw their hat in the ring and maybe adding on and maybe competing a little bit for this potential extra wildcard spot? Yeah, I mean, it's too early to be sure. We still have a week to go, you know, these things go down to the wire and Baltimore, no reason for them not to take it to the wire with this, as you said there, right there with the Red Sox, not the Red Sox or has fire, but give Baltimore credit. They're having a terrific year, they're bullpen outstanding. They got a good top of that lineup and lately Matteo and a couple others have added to that Rhea. So, you know, I would say I'd be surprised if they movement seen in the next couple days, but I would say by the end of this deadline, I still think it's a good chance that they do trade him. What about you mentioned Josh bell? And he's a very interesting name out there. And he's an interesting name for multiple reasons. One of which he's obviously a good bat to have, a first baseman that could possibly move into the outfield on occasions, but on top of that, he also plays for the nationals and Juan Soto's name is obviously at the top of everybody's list right now. Could you see a potential of them being packaged together with a team or is this a thing where Juan Soto is only going to be going by himself and Josh bell will likely go elsewhere? Well, you never want to say never. We saw a trick Turner in Max Scherzer, the two probably the two best players on last year's market package together, but I mean, in this case, they're both great hitters, so I would say they're going to be separate bells going to command quite a bit, but obviously Soto's going to command many, many, many times more than that. He's just one of the best players in the game. And you know, I think we know the teams that are involved certainly we're talking about the mets, the mets would love to get Soto, but you know, I just don't see the naps trading one photo in their division. I know there's going to be more of a balanced schedule going forward, but I don't think they want to see them with the mets. So they'd have to pay a premium. And I just don't see the mets doing that. Bill more realistic for them. They have made an offer or two or more a bill still haven't been able to come together on that yet, but I would say separately for those two guys, but good for the mets that there are many, many hitters on this market. You know, I think San Diego is looking for hitting Milwaukee's looking for hitting a few other teams maybe looking for hitting. But I think it's better positioned to be in the look for a big hitter than a big starting pitcher at this point. Yeah, and you mentioned San Diego. They're a team that very much intrigues me going forward in this trade deadline for multiple reasons. One of which they have some needs, they're not playing their best baseball right now. They may, we don't know this for sure yet, but they may be losing Mackenzie gore for a little bit of time, which would not be ideal for the team. And they have not been swinging the bat well lately, and they're still waiting on Fernando Tatís Jr.. They also have a lot of prospects, a lot of prospects and AJ preller is not afraid to trade away anything. He's made that abundantly clear over the past 7 years. How realistic it is it for that team to wind up with Juan Soto come trade deadline. Yeah, I mean, I do think there's a decent chance that happening. They were the first team that I thought of and wrote about when this became a possibility that one sort of was out there on the market. I mean, obviously AJ pillar was aggressive. He identified one so early on as a guy that he wanted when he was an amateur and soda was an amateur player.

"Is I'm not gonna play for you guys. That's exactly right. And let's say the Dodgers go and trade for Juan Soto. They are perfectly happy to have a player who they believe and this number is from another general manager with whom I was speaking. Here's how he put it. I would love to get Juan Soto because I know I'm going to be getting 15 wins above replacement for the next two and a half years. And if those wins above replacement are worth between 8 and $10 million a year, I know I'm going to be getting a 120 to a $150 million minimum in production from this player. Now granted, Juan Soto is being paid $17 million this year. It looks like he's going to go to about 24, 25 million in arbitration. This off season. And then in his final arbitration season, he could get a raise to somewhere in the vicinity of $35 million, but man, we're still talking about tens of millions of dollars in marginal value that they would be reaping. And if you can say, I get Juan Soto for his ages 23, 24 and 25 seasons without having to commit to the back end of that ten, 12, 15 year contract, and eat all of those bad years that may be there just because aging is undefeated. That's something I'll not only sign up for, but I'll give up half a dozen really good prospects for the privilege. But if you're a dad's fan, Jeff, I imagine that even though they're the worst team in baseball, you still want those seasons from one Soto for yourself, right? So at this point, the logical question is how irreparable that relationship is between Juan Soto and his agent Scott Boris and Soto's employer. To quote Pete Campbell, not great, bob. And listen, I think that Juan Soto was I've gotten to know him fairly well over the last few years. Right. And he's somebody who is a very optimistic and joyous human being. He is not your athlete who is going out and partying all the time who wants to be social, who wants to be seen, who wants to be known, who has a brand Juan Soto's brand is he's really good at baseball. And I think part of this whole thing to him has been keeping it private and the importance of that. Because it's kind of embarrassing to be a person who turns down $440 million. That makes him look like someone he feels like he isn't. That makes him look greedy, but he doesn't see it as he's being greedy, he sees it that he has a unique ability and he should be compensated for that unique ability and there should be no external factors, whether it is the feelings of others from the outside, especially trying to influence that. But the subject of feelings, Jeff, is where another mad men quote comes to mind because that's what the money is for is what Don Draper would tell Juan Soto. In terms of feeling badly about the public nature of this dispute now. And so my curiosity looking ahead to the resolution to this dispute is just about when we might see movement here. When are we going to see a possible deal with the deadline looming next week? Well, one executive who's been involved with the talks thinks that we're looking at an August 1st or so deal space, right? That the nationals have gone to teams and they've said, this is what we want. It is not up for negotiation. And to this point, no team has said yes, because the asks have been as another executive put to me. Exorbitant. I believe he's hold on. Let me pull up my iPad here and get the exact quote. Let's go to the source material, Jeff passon. Yes. Okay, let's pull up notes. And Soto and let me scroll here. Yeah, I don't want to, I don't want to get this wrong. Okay, here it is. It's completely asinine and ridiculous. That's the ask at the moment, right? And Pablo, you can't blame the nationals for that. Their trading a guy who they never thought that they were going to trade, or at least considering trading a guy who they never thought they were going to trade. And because of that, they should be asking for the moon, the sun, the stars, the cosmos. Yeah. In the end, the question is, will they accept just the moon in the stars? If Mike Rizzo does not have 120% of Juan Soto's value. Will 90% be good enough? Yeah, and Jeff, it's worth noting to write in all of this. Scott Boris is involved. And Scott Boris is a sort of agent, is my understanding who will go and find the James Webb telescope and tell you just how much more there is to this guy than even the sons and the moons and the stars that are visible. And so where does the Scott Boris thumb on the scale weigh in here in terms of how this may play out? I mean, it weighs heavy. You know, Scott Boris is the most successful agent in the history of professional sports. He has done contracts for more money than anybody else. Billions and billions of dollars worth. Scott Boris Juan Soto I think shares something. The idea that there should be a baseball player who gets paid half a $1 billion and he is that baseball player. The completely acid I and ridiculous Jeff passen. Thank you for joining us. Pablo is my both asinine and ridiculous pleasure. Thank you. I'm Pablo Torre and this has been ESPN daily. I'll talk to you tomorrow.

"And he proved himself too good for low a like within a matter of weeks. He played 16 games there, hit three 73. So the nationals were like, okay, there's guys too good for low a, let's bump them up to high a well, he played 15 games there and hit three 71 in the nationals bumped him up to double-A only 19 years old. And he had played 8 games at double-A, had an OPS of 9 81, and the nationals just had this rotten stretch of luck when it came to injuries among their outfielders. The nationals were scrambling, and they thought to themselves, okay? Well, we'll call the kid up and give him a shot. Here we go, the youngster has a chance to do some damage in his first start. Soto long ball the left. See you later. First pitch first Homer. First RBIs. Guess what, one, you're playing tomorrow. Juan Soto proceeded to spend 116 games in the big leagues that season hit two 92 with a four O 6 on base percentage of 5 17 slugging percentage. He was everything that you could ever want from a 19 year old. And you flash forward to now. Four years later, he's only 23 years old still, but he's getting close to free agency. And the nationals thought we want to build our franchise around him. And so in the off season, they offered him a contract for $375 million. And he said no. And this was more than Fernando Tatís Jr. got paid. This was more than Francisco Lindor. This was an exorbitant amount of money, so the nationals bumped their offer to 15 years and 440 $1 million. It was more than Mike Trout's 426 and a half $1 million. It's more than any NBA player or any NFL quarterback. It's more than the GDP of Micronesia. Of course it is. And we're at a point here though where that kind of a number is understandably not good enough or how would you describe the decision of Juan Soto to look at that as if he's at the plate and just let that offer pass by. Which he would do shuffling and staring down the picture, and that's exactly what he did in this instance, Pablo. He saw something that for every other player I'm not exaggerating when I say that. I think every other player in baseball would have been motivated to take this because the sheer size of the offering, the sheer number $440 million. It's mind boggling. It should, in theory, be enough. But Juan Soto in his agent Scott Boris looked at it like, well, Max Scherzer, his former teammate with the nationals is making $43 million a year on his current three year contract with the New York mets, and you're going to come and offer Juan Soto less than $30 million a year, the temerity to do so. The outright shame of this team. How dare you? How dare you offer me an average annual value of $29.3 million? How dare you? Megan $30 million a year? Seems like a pretty good living, but Juan Soto has a number in mind. And that number is 500. He would like to be the first $500 million athlete. In North American professional sports history, man, and there's a pretty good argument in favor of making him that. We're getting to the Facebook, social network territory of all of this stuff. We're just the numbers as a matter of both value in a matter of ego all factor into this it seems. And what's extra kind of funny to me as somebody who has no emotional stake in the national specifically is that they were seemingly like against the entire concept, right, of getting rid of this guy in the first place. Why would they ever trade him? Major League Baseball teams, NFL teams, NBA teams, NHL teams, soccer teams, every single sport. You dream of developing a player like Juan Soto. He's the sort of guy who you want to keep around forever. Yes, it's the point. It's the point of drafting. The point of having a draft is to get somebody like this kid. They had signed Juan Soto out of the Dominican Republic as a 16 year old. There was a story that Johnny de puglia, who was the international scouting director for the nationals, told me for the profile I wrote of Juan Soto about a year ago. Where he was showcasing down in Miami and the nationals had been on him for a while and they understood that if any other team saw Juan Soto, they were going to try and sign him because they were going to see what the nationals had seen already that this was a kid who had a unique ability, not just to hit the baseball, but to see it coming out of a pitcher's hand and recognize whether it was going to be in a strike zone or not. And then on top of that, to have the swing decision capacity to stop himself when that ball was going to feather even an inch or two inside outside up or down, his ability to control the zone was beyond what Johnny de puglia who's been in this business for decades had ever seen in a kid that age. And so he spirited him into a room back in the outfield and came to a deal right there and locked him in. Want soda was supposed to be a Washington national forever. And now here we are. July 26th, 2022, and it is looking more likely than not that he is not going to be a Washington national when the trade deadline comes a week from today. So how do we go, Jeff from June 1st, where the GM of the team, Mike Rizzo was saying, we are not trading Juan Soto. We are not trading watch Soto. We made a clear to his agent to answer the player. We have every intention of building this team around Juan Soto. How do we go from that to where we are now? Why aren't the nationals paying up for a guy of this caliber? Because I think they see $440 million a pretty good offer and they believe that if he's not going to sign for four 40, he's probably not going to sign for anything. And you could make the argument that, hey, if you're paying four 40, what's another $60 million? And there is, of course, that possibility that between now and August 2nd at 6 p.m. at the trade deadline that the nationals do come to that same conclusion that we don't want to lose Juan Soto. We want to build around him. But there are a number of complicating factors here beyond just the money. In the foremost among them, Pablo, is the fact that the Washington Nationals right now are being sold. The learner family has put them up for sale. They're going to go for multiple billions of dollars, and they want to extract as much value of him as they can before he reaches free agency and the easiest way to do that is to trade him sooner than later. But just to clarify here, Jeff, right? Because the learner family, which owns the Washington capitals and the wizards and the mystics and Capital One arena where those teams play as well as the nationals. When they sell this team to some billionaire out there, do you think that hypothetical buyer is going to want Juan Soto traded before they acquire the team? Or do you think they're going to want Juan Soto on the roster when they complete this purchase? Well, you can look at this two different ways in the way that I was initially looking at it is that anybody who's going to come in and own this team, maybe he or she wants first write of refusal, right? Like, okay. We're going to make another run at one soda. We're going to try to sign him. We're going to give our best college try. We're going to do everything we can to show this new fan base that we're serious. We're involved that we are such a big part of this and we are so committed that we're going to offer even more than the previous owner did. And if he turns it down at that point, well, then maybe everyone will understand. But the more I've been talking to people, the more they've presented this calculus, which is that, do you want to be the owner whose first move was to trade a guy who may go down as one of the greatest hitters in baseball history? Is that really how you want to start your stewardship of the franchise? Or do you want to inherit a team that yes has some bad contracts, but does have financial flexibility, particularly if you're not tying up $440 million into a guy like Juan Soto and you can take that financial flexibility and all of the great prospects and young players that you got in a trade for him and try and build something new, try and go with the fresh start. And that seems to be the prevailing theory at this point, which is why people around baseball feel that it's likely he moves before or on August 2nd, then say this off season. Interesting. The inevitability at this point, everyone believes, is that Juan Soto is going to move on from Washington. Wow. Okay, so basically a new hypothetical owner would want to have the previous owner lose the press conference so that they can come in with that lowered bar and win theirs. Bingo. So Jeff, 23 year old Ted Williams has two and a half years of control left. And that is another thing that makes all of this pretty mind-blowing, right? Like when you look at comps for this kind of a trade, the trade that we all assume now per your reporting is more likely than not, what are the comparisons inside of baseball itself? There really aren't any. I mean, this is a unique potential deal in every sense of the word because we have never seen anything like this before. I mean, bus are only my colleague suggested the closest analog to this is Babe Ruth being sold from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees more than a hundred years ago. Maybe the closest thing that we've seen is the 2007 trade of Miguel Cabrera from the Florida Marlins to the Detroit tigers. The return on that was 6 players, two of whom Cameron may have been an Andrew Miller, were seen among the top ten prospects in baseball at the time. And the rest of them really didn't work out and Andrew Miller wasn't very good in Miami, and Cameron may have been bounced around for quite a few years, but never became a star. And look, that's the worst case scenario for the nationals here, right? If you're going to trade Juan Soto, you almost need someone who's guaranteed, and the players that are being talked about and considered right now by the teams that are in it. Well, the four favorites that are ended at this point are all contending teams. So the idea that they're going to go pillage their major league roster in order to get a guy like Juan Soto just isn't particularly

"So Jeff, I have summoned you here because there is a trade that is being talked about across all of baseball. That is unprecedented that nobody has ever seen in a sport that has existed for over a century. And the guy at the center of it is Juan Soto, a guy that you know well. I got you profiled on this show before. And I just need you to explain for people who don't know him as well. How good is he, exactly? Juan Soto Pablo is Kevin Durant. Soto right field. See you later. Soto. This poll is destroyed. Wow. Juan Soto is Patrick Mahomes. This ball is crushed bangs on those one Soto. He is young. He is so preternaturally talented, so incredible. It all facets of the game, but especially at the most important for an offensive player, which is hitting the baseball, hitting it really hard, having an incredible eye at the plate. He is everything you want in a young hitter. And he's only 23 years old. I'm gonna throw a comparison out, please. For Juan Soto and call me a blasphemer, call me whatever you want. Juan Soto is Ted Williams. Damn. And so the price, Jeff, the price for a 23 year old Ted Williams. How do you describe what the cost might be here? I'm gonna use the words of a general manager with whom I spoke minutes after Juan Soto turned down a not just record contract for Major League Baseball, but a contract extension offer from the Washington Nationals Pablo that would have made him the highest guaranteed money paid player in North American professional sports history. I said to this general manager, what is it going to take to get Juan Soto and his answer was it's going to be a Herschel Walker trade. And if you have any knowledge of football history, the package that Herschel Walker was traded for. Was the single greatest package in the history of sports. And one that spawned the Dallas Cowboys dynasty of the 1990s. Right. And so that's what the Washington Nationals are hoping for here. If in fact, they do decide to move him that they're going to be able to put their franchise for the next decade in a far better position than it is now on the strength of this one deal alone. In other words, Jeff, the price for Juan Soto is pretty much everything. As it should be. The MLB trade deadline is one week away exactly. And right now, everyone is trying to win a prize that is pretty much never up forbids. But acquiring Juan Soto, The Crown jewel of the Washington Nationals, is even more complicated than it looks, because this story isn't just about a generational slugger with two and a half years left on his contract. It is also about a billionaire who is about to sell what is currently the worst team in baseball. And also the most feared agent in the game. So today, Jeff passon tells us about a young superstar that he knows as well as anybody. And the race to make Juan Soto the first half of $1 billion athlete. In North American sports. I Pablo Torre. It is Tuesday, July 26th.

"What I would say to that is three. 25. Yeah, but Juan Soto as great a player as Deborah's is. He is a great offensive player. There is no question about that. Soto is a generational talent and Hall of Fame. He's a griffey esque impact on your team. I guess, yeah, at that point, I would say, why don't you why didn't you pay Devers and bogarts? Right? Well, I mean, because bogarts is getting older. He's approaching 30. And Juan Soto is he is a Ted Williams. He is a Mickey Mantle. He is a Ken griffey junior. You name it. He is that kind of generational talent. All right, fair enough. So yeah, I guess that would work. The other thing we're so factors into me is if he does get dealt and what does he get dealt for? If he goes for an absolute hall and normally you don't see these kind of deals at the deadline. Normally you see him in the off season. We like to correct. That's good. I'm really happy. But let's say Soto goes for hall. Let's say you're sitting three or four games out of playoff spot at that point. I think you have to consider moving bogarts at least. Because we are seems as good as gone at this point. And I don't know that Beau verz is getting you as much as Soto, but if Soto goes in some team sees that as oh wow, contenders are really loading up, right? Let's say Soto goes to the mets. Every team in the NL is going to react to the yandel's probably more open than the AL. You know, I think the team like to braise is a pretty good farm system. Could you send them to the braves? The Phillies are kind of making a push here. I think you have to consider it. It's soda doesn't go. I don't know that you force it. I think Bogart's has more value in the off season. So I guess you can't sorry, let me take that back. I got my timeline mixed up. You can't move forward or something else since he's going to opt out. Yes, I think if Soto goes in the gets a hall, I think you have to consider moving bogarts. Devers, I still think you take that one down to the stroke of midnight and try to figure out if there's a way to get him back, even if you think he's gone. As much as it hurts, I think you have to think about moving bogarts if you know you're not going to respond. What if you move bogarts endeavors and your top two prospects? For
"soto" Discussed on Big Time Baseball
"I mean, that's really what's on everybody's mind at this moment and whether we'll be traded here and who we will be traded to. You know, I had a list of ten candidates who could acquire him and, you know, I didn't even include St. Louis in Seattle another kind of whispers like, you know, they've got the prospects, maybe they could do it. You know, the nets are going to be looking for major league talent. So that's going to make things very difficult and very interesting. I will say the mets not to likely in the same division. They don't want to see Soto there for at least another two and a half years and with Steve Cohn there probably another 15 years. I don't think they're too likely, obviously you'll see the big market teams, the Yankees, the Dodgers, involved some degree, the big gambling teams that have somebody San Diego, Texas, probably they're involved too, but it's going to be very interesting. I personally think it's going to be very difficult. I've been told it's like a Durant trade and a Durant trade on a deadline. Not easy. So we shall see, but that's certainly one of the big stories right now along with the old star game. Yeah, I mean, the moment you mentioned San Diego's name and your New York Post article. Oh my God. This place has been, it's been just coming up with all kinds of different trade ideas. We'll see how that shakes. Let's move to, as we move into the second half of the season, we're obviously Juan Soto is going to be a factor, whether he's moved or not. His name is going to be mentioned. But let's talk about some of the some of the guys that could be on the move come this deadline because clearly with the two extra playoff spots. They are going to be a lot more teams who feel like they're in it. And we saw this in the 2020 season, right? When we had the pandemic seems to be a lot more teams in it that feel like they're going to be willing to take a risk. And some, I know the Padres could be one of those teams on the list aren't going to be afraid of rentals. This time around. So we're not afraid of much. They're quite a gamble. So give them credit. I love them. You know, they put out amazing, amazing effort, considering they don't have that revenue of the Yankees or the mets of the Dodgers or teams like that, but give them credit. So yeah, they're certainly going to be in there pitching and you know, I think the vast majority of teams are going to be buyers based on this new rule where you got 6 teams in each division who are going to make the playoffs and it looks like you probably have to be above 500 to make it, but maybe not that much about 500. So there are a lot of teams that were thinking, you know what? We can hang in there. We might be able to make it. And they may go for it. And there are not that many sellers. So it clears sellers market where the sellers are going to get big, big prices for guys. And you know, even before Soto, there was certainly more hitters on the market than pitchers that pitchers market is weak right now. The pitcher's market very weak, but the hitter is market. Even when that's not terrible, you got judge bell you've got CJ cron, you know, Mancini potentially but Baltimore is doing well. You've got Contreras. You've got been intended. Maybe Nelson Cruz, you know, you've got some decent hitters out there. I think most or all of them are going to get moved and so it should be interesting. Even beyond soda, but I mean, Soto is the star, is it star last night? Is the star of the trademark as well? Let's put aside actual names, but how about team? Who do you think who do you think the teams that are going to be the most active come come deadline? Well, your team is always a boom the most act of the Padres. I mean, you know, AJ prowler in there. He's a gambler. He wants to do stuff. You know, I think that there's just going to be an enormous number of teams trying to do things. So, you know, Seattle is a team that has not been in the playoffs that they've won 14 games in a row. Jerry de potos, the GM who makes a ton of trades anyway. Here is their opportunity to get in for the first time since 2001. Unbelievable. So I could see Seattle. I could see certainly San Diego, but there are a lot of teams that are right on the cusp of the playoffs like, are we in? Are we out? Are we going to make it teams that we expected in some cases to be in it? I think St. Louis is a team that expected to be in it. You know, it's kind of nervous time for them. Philly's a team that hoped to be in it. They're kind of right on the borderline. San Francisco people speculated on whether they may sell, I don't think so, you know, they're in it to win it as well. So certainly a lot of division races are close, maybe the Yankees are pulling away, maybe Houston's pulling away, but certainly, you know, the central divisions with Milwaukee St. Louis, White Sox, twins, guardians, they're all involved. So, you know, you got probably two thirds of the teams that are involved right now. I know, it's weird, right? It's super weird. And listen, I think if you're into AL central, whatever moves you're making are strictly to win the center. 'cause it's gonna be an uphill climb to catch any of the American League east teams that are currently in the wild car position as well as the Mariners who are one for 13, 14 straight. 14. 14. 14 straight and they're still 9 games out of first place because that's how well Houston has played during the course of the year. Let's wrap up the first half. What were some of your takeaways from the first half of the season? Yeah, I mean, it seems that we expected to be great. We're pretty darn good, you know? The dogs are really good. The Astros are really good. The mets are good, even better than we thought. The Yankees really, much better than we thought. I mean, we thought they'd be a good team, but not like this. I mean, they look like for a while that they were threatening the, you know, the 1998, 114 win Yankees. Still may get there, may have to rally a bit to do it now, but they really had a spectacular first half.
"soto" Discussed on Big Time Baseball
"And you know, the perspective of Soto's camp is that, you know, they lock them up and enhances the value of the team and that's what they're trying to do. There's no doubt about it. We've seen. And I think the kind of the idea of free agents getting paid more, as you mentioned, Bryce Harper got, I think it was said 25, what was 5, four years ago, 5 years ago now, it free agency. We saw kind of a change in how teams operate it. When Fernando cited his scientist big deal at such a young age, he also saw the kid in Tampa sign his big deal at such a young age. I don't know that the free agency line doesn't work anymore. I think if we have your young talent, young talent like a Soto, a tatis, it seems like the idea now is to pay them early and get all of his prime years and you're paying them top dollar during that time. Those guys are rare. There's not a whole bunch of them out there, but I do think the philosophy has changed in Major League Baseball. So it sounds like the nationals and it probably has to do with the fact that they're going to sell this team are a little bit behind the times, if you will, and listen, for the outside looking in, you kind of hit on it. Window dressing. That's how it appeared to me the whole time, right? Because, you know, he seems like a pretty private dude, doesn't want to do this out in public. And it seems like every time there's been some type of offer, it has made its way to the public eye. And I'm sure that does sit well either, but it is a business we get it. John, let's talk a little bit about last night. Home run Derby. Once again was, I think, to the liking of all the viewers who are watching. It was a good competition. And ironic. It's not really ironic, but Juan solo also won that one that competition as well. And pretty big fashion. Yeah, I mean, I used to really load the home run Derby. They've made it much better than that with the time rather than the swings. I think that really enhanced it. Speeds it up too, by the way. Yeah, take folks. Right, exactly. I know. I felt like I was leaving in the middle of the afternoon here, of course. We're in Los Angeles, so I'm not used to the early start. I love it. I should probably move out here and join you if you got room in your house. I think I'll do it. I got four kids. I don't know if I have enough. Oh my God, good for you. I mean, Julio Rodriguez, you know, he really stole the show. Fantastic. You know a lot of us don't get to see him very often, incredible talent as well. Only 21 years old and as so often happens, the guy who steals the show doesn't end up winning it, but Soto, the big name in the news is the guy who does win it terrific young man. I think we all believe that. I know some people probably annoy they didn't take this big amount of money, but he's going to do better. Let's face it, he's going to do better. He's the man of the hour. He's where all the news is and I think right now you all start game obviously since we talk is coming, but the trade, the potential trade of Soto, I mean, that's really what's on everybody's mind at this moment and whether we'll be traded here and who we will be traded to. You know, I had a list of ten candidates who could acquire him and, you know, I didn't even include St. Louis in Seattle and now they're kind of whispers like, you know, they've got the prospects, maybe they could do it. You know, the nets are going to be looking for major league talent. So that's going to make things very difficult and very interesting. I will say the mets not too likely in the same division. They don't want to see Soto there for at least another two and a half years and with Steve Cohn there probably another 15 years. I don't think they're too likely, obviously you'll see the big market teams, the Yankees, the Dodgers, involved some degree, the big gambling teams that have some money, San Diego, Texas, probably their involved too, but it's going to be very interesting. I personally think it's going to be very difficult. I've been told it's like a Durant trade and a Durant trade on a deadline. Not easy. So we shall see, but that's certainly one of the big stories right now over the old star game. Yeah, I mean, the moment you mentioned San Diego's name and your New York Post article. Oh my gosh. This place has been it's been just coming up with all kinds of different trade ideas

"Another episode of big time baseball on your host Tony gwyn junior alongside my co host John hayman John has been quite some time since you and I have been able to do this, man. I completely different sides of the coast. Yeah, miss Jew, I'm now on your coast, obviously in Los Angeles. The old star game. So we are at least within a few miles now. Obviously, last night was pretty sweet for baseball fans, but I think we can't start the baseball conversation without talking about Juan Soto and the reported $440 million. He turned down over a 15 year span, it sounds like at this point the nationals are reserved to the fact they're going to have to move them. They don't have to necessarily move them right now, but that is the feel it seems like going around Major League Baseball. Yeah, I'm with you. I don't think it has to be right now. I do think it seems like they're going to have to move them. Could be in the winter though. It's very difficult to do this on a deadline. They only have two weeks before the trade deadline. Obviously, once the trade deadline comes, they're not going to be able to move them. So that's pretty quick. Now, can it be done? Sure, can be, but it's not going to be easy to contending teams are not going to want to give up pieces of major league level. Well, obviously, the national going to want guys at the major league level. And also the teams that are out of it, you know, the need for Soto at the moment is not that great. So it's not going to be easy to do this in season be much easier out of season. So no guarantee is traded at this moment, but certainly there will be talks. It's going to be very interesting. It is the story of the moment, even beyond the All-Star Game. John, you obviously are insider and my question for you is, is there a specific number he is looking at? I mean, I know we heard talks of 500 million at one point or as a possibility, but this seems like a ton of money. Is he just ready for a change of scenery? No, you know, I think it is the deal. I mean, you know, I talked to a few executives here and they're not surprised that he turned that down. And the reason is it's because of the salary. It's not the total, the total four 40, obviously. That's eye popping. For anybody, it's a record, but the fact that it's 29 a year. You and I could do well on that, but it sure deal is out there 43 million that side disagreed on whether that's relevant or not. Solo camp says anything is relevant. It's out there. There's a guy making 43 million beyond that. There are several guys who are huge stars making 35, 36 million, certainly above 30 million. And you know, at this point, we're talking about a guy who's not only one of the best players in the game. He's only 23 years old. So he's got a lot of prime years left and, you know, I think it's more of the salary than the total, but you know, those numbers that we mentioned, I think maybe I was the first one to mention the 500 a couple of years ago. Yeah, thank you. It looks like it could be in the ballpark, you know, at this point. For those who may not understand the concept of turning down 440 billion. In my experience, being around guys who are this good, they want that AAV as they like to call it. That yearly salary basically to be, you know, if you're the best player you want it to be amongst the best in the league in terms of salary. And if that number doesn't quite sit in that top one through 5 maybe, I could totally see why Juan Soto has turned his money down. And it sounds like the nationals are reserved, the fact that they don't want to go to the number that he wants to be at. So yeah, no, it's not going to work out. At this point, it's pretty clear. I mean, from the Nats perspective, you know, they saw Bryce Harper's sign for I think it was 13 for three 30, right? So that was somewhere in the neighbor of 25 a year. As a free agent, so does not afraid. But again, at this point, he's only 23 years old, he's doing a very year that Harper did not have a good free agent year as we remember it about a two war for the year, a little bit below and he's been better with Philly. So, you know, at this point, the numbers are going up. So does an even better player, he's even younger and feeling is now that we've seen guys get 35, 36. That's right. 43. That's right. A guy like this is not going to take 29. Nobody was actually in the game is surprised that he turned this down and from the camp of Soto, they think it was kind of like window dressing to show the big number.
