Rumor: Chicago Cubs Interested in Superstar

Cubs intersted in superstar

The Chicago Cubs missed the 2023 postseason by one game in the National League Wild Card, which was a fantastic accomplishment with them being without their star pitcher, Marcus Stroman, for most of the season. This offseason, the Cubs hitting free agents are Cody Bellinger, Jeimer Candelario, and Yan Gomes. There is now a rumor that they might be interested in acquiring OF Juan Soto from the San Diego Padres, which would add a power bat to a lineup and would be a nice piece to add to a lineup that includes Dansby Swanson, Seiya Suzuki, and Ian Happ. 

Juan Soto By The Numbers

Soto started his career with the Washington Nationals, and he would play for them for five seasons, winning a World Series in 2019. He would then be traded to the San Diego Padres along with Josh Bell in exchange for prospect CJ Abrams, MacKenzie Gore, and Luke Voit. Soto, in his career, has a slash line of .284/.421/.524 with a .946 OPS; he has 148 doubles, 11 triples, 160 home runs, 483 RBI, 527 runs scored, 50 stolen bases, and 640 walks. Last season for the Padres, he slashed .275/.410/.519 with a .930 OPS; he had 32 doubles, one triple, 35 home runs, 109 RBI, 97 runs scored, 12 stolen bases, and 132 walks. He is a three-time All-Star and finished as a runner-up for MVP in 2021. Soto would be a difference maker in the Cubs lineup, but is it worth the cost to acquire him and the money he wants to keep him?
