AJ Hoffman: "Soto is super hot right now, 5 HR's in his last 40 at bats. I think getting kicked around in these trade talks there's a good chance to showcase his skills in who is willing to pay more than $440m against a first time derby contestant. He has a skill test to show his worth today. The Mets and Yankees want him, assuming he's not with the Nationals by the trade deadline."
RJ Bell: "It strikes me that, Soto has had a tough road. He's motivated to get his name out their and to make a show out of himself."
