The Nationals have begun fielding "preliminary offers" for Juan Soto as the Aug. 2 MLB trade deadline looms.

According to Bob Nightengale, seven teams have already reached out: Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees, New York Mets.

Nationals fans will obviously note the presence of the NL East rival Mets, as well as the Dodgers, who were savvy enough to pry shortstop Trea Turner and ace Max Scherzer away from the Nats ahead of last summer's deadline.

If Washington does decide to move forward with dealing Soto, those same fans could be in for another soul-crushing summer.
