Acuña Jr. le manda mensaje a Juan Soto


The Braves MVP candidate was on twitter and answered a question from a fan with a very interesting name.
Atlanta Braves slugger Ronald Acuña Jr made a rare appearance on twitter today, tweeting in response to some MLB news when he was answered a question from a fan:

Ronald’s answer was almost immediate:

Not before you get too excited, the odds of Juan Soto joining the Braves are extremely unlikely.

Soto was traded from the Washington Nationals to the San Diego Padres in 2022 after turning down a 15-year, $440M contract extension from Washington that would have been the largest contract in baseball history.

The ensuing trade ended up being one of the larger trades in recent history, with Soto and first baseman Josh Bell moved to San Diego for a total of six players, including current or former Top 100 prospects James Wood, Robert Hassel III, MacKenzie Gore, Jarlin Susana, CJ Abrams, and MLB first baseman Luke Voit.

San Diego is said to be entertaining offers for the uber-talented Soto, who is in his final year of contractual control before one of the more anticipated free agencies in recent history. He’ll get to free agency at just past his 26th birthday, while currently holding a career MLB line of .284/.421/.524 with 160 homers in 779 career games over six season. He’s twice been a Top-5 finisher for the NL MVP award (2020 & 2021), while also a three time Silver Slugger, a three-time All-Star, and winning the 2019 World Series.

Atlanta’s farm system, ranked towards the bottom of Major League Baseball, would be hard pressed to find the prospects needed to make the deal with San Diego. Additionally, as a Scott Boras client, it is believed that Soto is determined to reach free agency and sign one of the largest contracts in MLB history – the Braves don’t typically play in that end of the free agent pool and do not currently have any Scott Boras clients on their roster.

But just, for a second, imagine a lineup where Juan Soto slots in behind Ronald Acuña Jr. That’s…absurd, right? Atlanta already tied for the most home runs in MLB history in 2023, leading all of baseball in runs scored. But to add THAT bat to the lineup? WHEW.

Sadly, it seems like this is more wistful thinking on Ronald’s part.
