Although it is difficult to compare eras and different players, the numbers and the way of playing of Soto and Williams, but it is that even their numbers at this point in the careers of both are practically the same, since according to data from statesman Erick Lantigua, the Dominican and the Hall of Fame are the only two members of an exclusive club.

The reality is that Soto’s season finale is being impressive, sneaking into the conversation for the National League MVP along with Fernando Tatis Jr. and Bryce Harper, with the Nats hitting since August 5 for .400 with an OBP of .572, having 11 homers and just 20 strikeouts for 55 walks.
