Have you ever wondered why Washington National outfielder Juan Soto has refused a 350 million contract from the team?
Let’s face it – most, if not all, of us would probably take a guaranteed $ 350 million in any case, wouldn’t we?
Well, as far as MLB extension market concerns, Soto has made the right decision.
That’s right: he’s worth a lot more than that.
Just looking at his age (he is still 23 years old), his achievements and his immense talent, suffice it to say that this kid is likely to surpass everyone else in MLB when he signs his next contract.
Juan Soto did his @MLB Debuted 4 years ago today.

“Juan Soto made it @MLB Debuted 4 years ago today. Since then: 2019 World Series Champion; 2020 Silver Slager; 2020 batting title; 2021 Silver Slugger; 2021 MVP finalist; 2021 All-Star, ”wrote the nationals on their official Twitter account.
Soto made his debut in 2018 as a 19-year-old outfielder.
That year, he dropped .292 / .406 / .517 with 22 home runs and a .923 OPS.
He was 19!
He played at an MVP level in 2019 and should have probably won awards in 2020 and 2021, so the fact that he still doesn’t have an MVP is actually quite confusing.
Her career line of .297 / .429 / .543 and her amazing total for her age (106 home runs, 363 runs, 323 RBI) has put her in the Hall of Fame projection, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
If the citizens do not want him to pay the price, then someone will reach the free agency.
Soto is a true difference-maker who still dominates (.864 OPS) even when he’s not playing and points out his high standards.
He could be the best hitter in baseball if we consider his communication, strength and plate discipline.
And his age is 23 years.
He is a special player.
