Logan Webb's perfect response to Juan Soto's warning to NL pitchers

Webb has a great reaction to Soto's warning to NL pitchers, which originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Giants pitcher Logan Webb had a simple answer to Juan Soto's warning to the rest of the NL if the San Diego Padres lineup is completely healthy.
"It's going to be really exciting, it's going to be really tough to get through," Soto said in his opening press conference. He then wished the rest of the NL pitchers good luck.

The 25-year-old Webb was the Giants' second-best pitcher behind Carlos Rodón and amassed a 3.20 ERA in 22 games. He's pitched 135 innings, which leads the Giants' pitching team and is perhaps San Francisco's most outstanding building block.
Meanwhile, Soto joins a Padres team that is missing perhaps its most valuable piece in shortstop Fernando Tatís Jr, who is rehabilitating from shoulder and wrist injuries. Soto, a .291 career hitter, is having a bad year by his standards, posting .246/.408/.485 with 21 homers and 46 RBI. However, his 91 walks are best in the NL.
The Washington Nationals traded 23-year-old Soto and first baseman Josh Bell to the Padres for a handful of top prospects, a price the Giants felt was too high. Currently occupying the second NL wild card slot, the Padres are hoping the acquisitions of Soto and Bell, coupled with the imminent return of Tatís Jr., will be enough to propel them into the playoffs for the first time since 2006.
