Following the story that Juan Soto turned down a 15-year, $440 million contract extension offer from the Washington Nationals, trade rumors began to circulate.

People are now wondering if he will end up in St. Louis, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle or maybe even San Francisco.

Many are also confused as to why Soto would turn down such an offer.

But sports analyst Andrew Brandt is here to clarify some things and debunk some myths.

On Twitter, he revealed that the message delivered to the media and fans is different from reality, and that the contract offer was not as good as it seems.

Don’t believe the spin

Basically, what Brandt is saying is don’t believe the public relations spin the Nationals are putting on this.

In reality, the offer was not that great.

He would go on to make less than $30 million a year, which would have put him well below some of the top 20 players in MLB.

It won’t be enough if you’re trying to extend a guy like Soto.

He’s going to want more than that.

Looks like the Nationals were really trying to put him down.

Now the trade rumors will start circulating.

We’re on the cusp of the second half of the 2022 season, and it’s unclear whether Soto will remain a National or end up with another team once the trade deadline arrives.

Simply put, you can’t put a guy like Soto down if you want to extend him and keep him in Washington for the long haul.

He’s a free agent in a few years, so if the Nats want to keep him, they’ll have to do a lot better than what they just offered their star.
