Mets Emerge as Yankees’ Pivotal Adversary in Pursuit of Superstar Juan Soto, Reports Indicate

The 2024 season hasn’t kicked off yet but speculation about next year’s free-agent class already is picking up.

New York Yankees superstar Juan Soto is going to be the top free agent available and there already has been questions about his future. The Yankees clearly want to keep him, but it’s clear he will enter free agency, and then anything can happen.

The New York Mets already have been floated as an option and currently are seen as the Yankees’ biggest threat, according to the New York Post’s Jon Heyman.

“Juan Soto began his Yankees tenure with a bang — 10 at-bats in, he had a .500/.750/1.800/2.550 slash line — and folks are figuring it will be a very long New York career,” Heyman said. “But will it be with the Yankees or Mets?

“Sure, the Yankees have the distinct advantage of having his undivided attention for most of 2024 to sell him on life in pinstripes. However, folks around the game are suggesting that after a year on practical free-agent hiatus, Steve Cohen’s Mets may become the biggest competitor for Soto’s services…Cohen and the Mets are expected to be back in spending mode next winter, as he told Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, and us.”

Soto is one of the best players in baseball and is just 25 years old. He is the exact type of player you make a massive investment in and it sounds like the Mets at least are going to try to do so.

New York has plenty of money to spend and it sounds like it will be willing to spend it all on Soto.
