The Nationals, eager to retain one of baseball’s best hitters, extended a 15-year, $440 million offer to Soto, which was rejected because their expectations were set at $500 million.

“They’re going to pay him because the guy’s a phenomenon. It’s hard to find a franchise that can make an offer like that that you turn down. You’re talking about a 15-year contract that’s almost half a billion dollars, and that might make you the highest paid guy, but it makes you the highest paid guy.” He added that.

Soto, for his part, had respectful words with ‘Big Poppy’, despite disagreeing with his opinion.

“I can’t tell you anything. He is my father. David is someone who will always be there for me. He’s a tremendous man,” Soto told ESPN.
