Dodgers fans recruited Juan Soto in the middle of the All-Star game
After a big All-Star week in Los Angeles, Dodgers fans are pushing for Juan Soto.
The big question in baseball circles right now is whether Juan Soto will still be a Washington National by the August 2nd deadline. What if he isn’t? The Los Angeles Dodgers could be players in his trade market, or at least that’s what Dodger fans think.
Andrew Friedman or the LA front office didn’t have to pull out all the stops as the fan base actively courted Soto while the all-star game.

Los Angeles is already packed, especially after adding Freddie Freeman to a team that already has superstars galore, including an outfielder Soto is sure to want to bring to the top of salary: Mookie Betts. The idea of an outfield configuration with Juan Soto AND Mookie Betts at Chavez Ravine is unnerving and would once again make the Dodgers prohibitive title favorites.
And what Dodger fan wouldn’t want to see a Soto-Betts tandem, especially afterward Soto’s electrifying home run derby victory on Monday evening? The rest of baseball probably wouldn’t be so excited about that.
As for LA’s chances of actually landing the superstar outfielder? They’re always in the running for big players on the trading block, as we saw with Max Scherzer and Trea Turner last summer. Insiders of the New York Post Jon Heyman gives the Dodgers the second-best odds to make a deal for Soto, just behind the Texas Rangers.
Money and potential capital never seem to be an issue for the Dodgers, nor does fan recruitment, as was made clear at Tuesday night’s All-Star game. With all the stars lined up, Los Angeles might just be in the mix to trade for one of the best racquets and overall in our game today.
