Juan Soto just turned down a 15 year, $440 million contract. Basically $30 million a year until he is 40 years old. It would have been the biggest contract in MLB history.
Rafael Devers is the same age as Soto, beats him in a number of career numbers and is trending as a better overall player. Will the Sox give him a $400 million offer? Should they?
I say they should. The Sox invested in the wrong guy a couple years back. They should have retained Mookie Betts and let Chris Sale walk. History shows, they would have been better off given availability alone. They can't make the same mistake with Devers that they did with Betts.
