Zero for 3 with a walk and a strikeout again last night.  Crushing disappointment is right.  I traded for him and Musgrove (with Texpope, actually) since I have a great shot at a home league title this year.  Since I acquired Soto:  in 65 ABs, his OPS is .603, with 1 HR and 7BI, hitting a cool .169.  Yikes.

As my team sinks farther and farther out of contention, I've stopped looking for or thinking about Soto's line. It's a shock when he contributes anything at all. Just an absolute crushing disappointment.

09.18: Juan Soto went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a solo homer in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks. (After the blockbuster trade at the trading deadline, Soto's bat has gone mysteriously cold. He is slashing just .135/.312./230 in the last month
for the Padres. Maybe Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks can put the
23-year-old back on track. San Diego will face the Cardinals in Petco
Park and the Rockies in Coors field in the upcoming week.)

Something in his personal life like moving across the country to an entirely new situation?

He's not 23.  Said this years ago.

Hopefully, Bob, you won't have to worry about the playoffs because my Brewers are going to catch Howard's Padres (probably not actually but I like to dream big).

So is it contagious Howard?  This Pads malaise, that is?  And should I as a sports better expect it to continue into the playoffs?  Because for now, it looks ugly, even fatal.

There's A LOT about the Padres that are aggravating ... but can a team currently in the playoffs legitimately be called "crappy"?  For sure, if they had "the real Juan Soto" (ie. the one we all know/love/remember), they'd be a lot better ...

With San Diego, now .212/.382/.336, 3 HR, 7BI, 0SB.  Even worse than with the Nats. And his 5x5 earnings YTD are less than half of 2021.  Getting booed at Petco.

I just don't get what is going on with him. The Nats' haul looks pretty nice right now.  Is he doing a Yelich on us?  Yelich fell off the cliff at like 28.  Soto is amazingly still only 23.

Maybe something in his personal life, aggravated by playing for a crappy team?

Rotoworld:

08.10: Juan Soto went 2-for-3, scored three runs and crushed his first home run as a member of the Padres in Tuesday's victory over the Giants. (Soto
got the Padres on the board with a game-tying 395-foot solo shot off of
Alex Cobb in the fourth inning. He then led off the sixth inning with a
double and came around to score on an RBI single by Josh Bell. Soto
then reached on catcher's interference in the ninth and rode home on
Manny Machado's walk-off blast. The 23-year-old superstar is slashing
.249/.411/.499 with 22 homers, 47 RBI and six swipes on the season.)
