A day after it was announced that the Padres had traded for star closer Josh Hader from the Brewers, the team landed the biggest fish available when they sent away prospects to the Washington Nationals for Juan Soto. Ben Maller gives the Padres an A+ for this move.
Ben Maller: "Juan Soto possesses something that is rare in baseball. There are plenty of professional baseball teams but there's very few of this. There's a finite amount of stardust and Juan Soto has the stardust. The Padres are unequivocally a better team today than they were yesterday."
