My thoughts exactly. I want to throw up just thinking about it. Are they going to sign “big papi” next? He strikes me as a super d bag but maybe he is a good guy and his pre pitch semantics are only so bothersome because he was a red sock. Then again,I still hate it.
For the immediate time going into 2024, we're going to need a really good left handed starting pitcher to have Soto take a seat every time he's up against the Orioles. The Yankees haven't had a lefty like him in a long time and we were able to manage Judge in several games because Hyder leveraged the matchups the best he could.
We want Left on Left when pitching to Soto.
I hope Soto fails miserably.
Soto might only be 25 still, but that body is filling out and not in a good way. IIRC, he brings practically no defensive value to the table and he’s still young. He’s trending towards fat, he’s already slow. Just need to wait till he gets old and his hitting skills erode a little bit and he’ll be a liability that Yankees hopefully can’t get rid of after they’re stupid enough to extend him. Maybe like a Stanton 2.0.
