    just lead the league in OPS and ERA and are playing like a machine
    i'm fine adding another bat like Happ or Drury and calling it a day
    let's play some games
    have to admit it takes balls to go all in like they just did but most times that's a fools bet

    i was never in the get soto camp from the beginning so idgaf
    soto is a great player no doubt
    but if he were to go into the tank (a la cody), then it would have crippled us for years with all we gave up
    doesn’t matter to me what san diego did or didn’t give up — we would have had to give up more
    still stand by my statement that i'd rather re-sign trea
    people might not agree with what i’m about to say, and that’s fine…
    the padres improved their offense substantially, but imo…
    — our offense is still better than their’s
    — our defense is better than their’s
    — our rotation is better than their’s
    — our bullpen is better than their’s
    — and most of all… our city, fanbase, organization are all better than their’s
    not only that, imagine how good it will feel to knock them out even after everything they’ve done
    fuck san diego
    fuck the padres
    fuck boras
    fuck preller
    fuck the nationals
    hell, fuck soto too while we’re at it
    i don’t care what they’ve done…
    they’re still 12 games back and haven’t ever proven a thing
    fuck them all
    go dodgers

    Not quite. And if you have a shot at getting a generationally great top 5 player, you do it.
    Imo, there no downside for the Padres on this at the moment.
    We are still 12 games up on them, and as long as we win, they can't take the division away from us.
    Which means: NOTHING.
    We'll still have to go through them in post season.
    And they have a far superior manager to ours.
    Advantage: SD

    I have no insight on Trea Turner and the way he thinks...but, quite possibly...he's saying to himself, " they waited until they didn't get Juan, so now they offer me an extension...fuck them".
    Seems quite possible. But who knows what they will dangle in front of him?
    Or what SD will ?
    Just saying, that thought process is plausible from Turner.
    That's of course, if they do offer him an extension.
    Who's gonna take his place and be him ? Gavin Lux ?
    Nah...
    I don't think so.

    Just saw the trade....first the prospects the Pads are giving up are NOT their top 4. Only 2 rank. Abrams is a light hitting SS, Gore is a legit ROY but just got lit up Sat. Hassell is prob #1 or #2 depending on the list. Wood is #2 or #4 depending on the list. Susana is like in the #10-15 range. On top of that they are taking Hosmer. The Dodgers def could have beat that package headlining it with Lux/Miller/Cartaya. IMO, MGT chose to not bid on Sosa. I kinda wonder if they are holding out hope they can pry Ohtani away in the winter.

    Made it to the dentist and now for the waiting game
    Eh I would have loved getting Soto and of course SD just got better but he's one man
    I couldn't have stomached losing what I was hearing it would cost
    We aren't done and I feel fine
    W the exception of my face but that's temporary

    Seeing what SD gave up im not sure those reports were correct on what we would have needed to give up. Im fine for trading for the Marlins Lopez and signing Trea to an extension

    If I think about this rationally, Padres are about to add Tatis, Soto, Bell, and Hader to an already pretty good team. They very most likely don't catch us in the standings, but definitely aren't someone I want to see in the playoffs.

    1. I'm with @irish ... get Soto or not, I like LA's chances as they are now.
    2. The Nats fan base is upset!? What fanbase? It took Baby Shark on the Jumbotron to get fans to watch games there in 2020. GTFOOH.
    3. North TJ going all in - goody gumdrops for them. Still, tha city is famous for Shamu & a zoo, not for MLB excellence. The only baseball immortality they have looks like this....

    We are having a great season and I think there’s a solid chance we finish with the best record overall. I just don’t feel great about the postseason. We still have Craig Kimbrel closing games for us…unless we plan on blowing everyone out in the postseason, I can’t feel optimistic about a WS. SD definitely has the better closer now as do most teams in the league. Imagine facing SD in the NLDS and entering the 9th up 1 with Craig facing Tatis-Soto-Machado. How does the rotation shape up? Do we trust Gonsolin in big games? We don’t have that one real elite starting pitcher we can truly trust in a do or die game. The pitching issues still exist if we acquired Soto, but generational players like him are rarely available and now we get to see a lot of him. Didn’t go well in 2019.

    We will get Trienan back and i bet May is added to the bullie like Urias was 2 years ago. Im only worried that MGT will keep Kimbrel as the closer.

    I would've been fine including Cartaya and maybe one of Miller or Pepiot along with some lower prospects. Oh, and they would've had to take Bellinger. I may value Lux higher than most here, but I think he'll be a future multiple year all-star, and I would've HATED seeing him go. The same goes for May. Glad we still have them. Sign Trea to an extension and maybe Soto will come over in two years.

    Im still in the Ohtani camp. It MGT can trade for him or sign him after the 2023 season then im fine letting Soto go to the pads.
