According to Jeff Passan of ESPNThe San Diego Padres are finalizing a deal to acquire superstar outfielder Juan Soto from Washington, sources tell ESPN. One of the biggest deals in baseball history goes down, and it sends the 23-year-old to SD, where he will team with Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado.

Fernando Tatis Jr. said, “I feel like every guy that is in this lineman and it’s in this lineup and that is going to be in this lineup I feel like they’re going to put something special out there and we’re definitely going to do the work we have the talent we definitely have the talent and uh we have the team to do it now it’s up to us to put the work out there and make it happen.”

The San Diego Padres are in a good position to contend for the World Series title this season

On their team, every gap has been filled. The likelihood of this team winning the World Series is increased by all the additions that they have made. Props to G.M. AJ Peller who has done a fantastic job.

The trio of Manny Machado, Juan Soto, and Fernando Tatis Jr. will be very dangerous. It will be exciting to watch this team for years to come since the Padres are a tough opponent for any pitching staff.

The Padres will probably be a wildcard team because they have little chance of overtaking the Dodgers this season. But anyone they play in the playoffs understands it won’t be simple for them.

To win the World Series, the San Diego Padres have gone all in. They have all the resources needed to succeed, making them one of the most fascinating teams to follow in the future.
