“Most power Hosmer has had all season” “One more reason to hate Hosmer”

No one could have predicted that Eric Hosmer would be the trending topic on the last day of the trading deadline. The San Diego Padres first baseman is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. In an unprecedented move, the 32-year-old’s decision to turn down a move from San Diego to the Washington Nationals is creating a lot of conversation.

This story revolves around Juan Soto, who is undoubtedly the biggest name trading in this period. The deal for Soto was rumored to be one of the largest in baseball history and would most likely affect multiple players and teams. Enter Eric Hosmer.

Hosmer has declined to go to the Nats in the Soto deal as it is his contractual right. The deal is still ongoing. Soto is a Father.

It was a bold move by Hosmer, who has now instantly become one of San Diego’s most hated Padres in recent history. Fans of the team are furious with Hosmer over a move that could have derailed one of the greatest moves in Padres history.

The deal for Soto includes many pieces. The trade will reportedly send Juan Soto and Josh Bell to San Diego. In return, the Nationals would welcome MacKenzie Gore, Robert Hassell III, CJ Abrams, James Wood, Jarlin Susana and one other major league player (reportedly Hosmer).

@JonHeyman All the more reason to hate Hosmer. I hope they find a way to drop him, but Soto and Bell make the pain of having Hosmer on our team more bearable. He will probably ride the bench to the moon.

Hosmer is currently batting .272/.336/.391 with eight homers and 40 RBIs.

The deal is expected to go through, but the decision not to take a deal with Washington nearly deprived fans of the most exciting deal in years.

Eric Hosmer got $100 million from the Padres and sucked. Not taking that deal would be the biggest loser I’ve ever seen in a pro athlete.

The irony is that Hosmer isn’t even that valuable an asset. The Padres have a number of hitters that are more important to their offense.

@JonHeyman Hosmer should be relegated to the bench and replaced at late-inning fullback. He’s just not that good.

The main issue here, aside from Hosmer not wanting to move to the bottom-ranked Nationals, appears to be Hosmer’s massive contract. He owes Hosmer $20 million this season and about $13 million over the next three years.

If the Padres are willing to pay (most of) his salary, I’d take Hosmer in a heartbeat.

It’s a huge commitment for any team in the league to line up for a player who hits .272.

I, along with all of San Diego, will hate Hosmer if he refuses

Juan Soto seems to be a Padre. The move cements San Diego as one of the favorites for the World Series. Whether Eric Hosmer will remain with the team through this highly anticipated season has yet to be decided.
