If that is all it is, then we can close this thread. If there's more to it....then someone post when they find out.

It's not the kid that it affects. His father is one of the biggest trainers in the D.R. Meaning his father probably knew. This guy trains a lot of the best D.R. talent that makes it to America. He's already been involved in a molestation scandal. This is another to top it off.

It's not the kid that's the real big issue here. We already knew there were age problems. It's that this kid's father is highly known in the baseball world there.

Before the next person posts another sarcastic remark, I'd suggest you read this excerpt from the article everyone seems to not have read


Enrique Soto has been one of the most powerful people in Dominican baseball. A former scout for the Athletics in the early 1990s, Soto has worked in Bani as a trainer for Miguel Tejada (who used a false age to sign), Erick Aybar and Willy Aybar, among others.

The Mariners have signed several of Soto's most expensive players in recent years, including Jharmidy DeJesus, who signed for $1 million shortly before his 18th birthday in 2007 and is now a first baseman/third baseman with low Class A Clinton. Shortstop Esteilon Peguero, who also trained with Soto, agreed to sign with the Mariners in December 2010 for $2.9 million, which would have been the biggest bonus of the year, until the Mariners reduced his bonus to $1.1 million for unconfirmed reasons.

Do you see why this is a big deal?

If his son is using fake ID's, there's a very good chance it was his father who got him one. Meaning that a lot of expensive contracts could be going out overage players on fake ID's. Meaning teams are going to be PISSED.

Great catch, shame I didn't read either.

I read the while thing and I still don't see it as a huge deal. When we guys start popping up with falsified documents, I will.

They probably already have. He's trained Tejada (falsified documents). His son (falsified documents). And now we're looking at a player the Mariners signed to a $2.9m contract but magically dropped over 50% of that? Probably because they found/worried about enough to think he too, had falsified documents.

Especially for a Mariner's fan, a team who's paid out a lot of money to Soto's players....this is a big deal. I'd be absolutely pissed if the Cubs had paid out the money they have to this guys kids.

I don't think this is nothing, but it seems something less than a "BIG baseball Scandal!"
