The Tiger’s will have over 40 million coming off the books after the 2023 season. Juan Soto will be a free agent after the 2024 season and will only be 25 years for the 2025 season. Do you think the Tiger’s should go all in on Juan Soto? 13 years and 429 million might not even be enough which is an AAV of 33 million.
The 2024 season was the target year before the anomaly year and Al Avila went out and spent a ton of money and declared the rebuild over. Now the target should be 2025. We all know now that 2022 was simply the end that was expected by the Al Avila tenure. Dead wrong on his assessment of where the Tiger’s were in their rebuild and wasted money spent. However, had he not collapsed so profoundly, maybe Illitch doesn’t pull the trigger.
So I ask again, should the Tiger’s go all in on Juan Soto after the 2024 season or is it too soon to make such a big splash? Juan Soto might not even come here but if the Tiger’s are the highest bidder and if the Park plays more fair this year, maybe the extra money the Tiger’s throw at him is enough to get him to come.
Let’s talk about it!
