Heck, the Reds should hire the help for him if need be. Bring his wife and kids to Cincy for the season and put em up in a grand suite, fly em back and forth at will, do whatever. Buy him a shuttle jet. I'm only being half facetious here. Soto has shown himself a good teacher but his presence in the DR can't be overlooked either. The Reds are getting some quality players from there finally & I think Soto has more to do with that than anything or anyone else in the Reds org. If Cueto, Volquez, Junior Martinez, Juan Duran, Pedro Viola, Juan Francisco, et al, pan out and guys like this kep signing through Soto's influence and scouting via his academy then Mario Soto may become more important to Reds history in his current role than he was as a pitcher. And I have the highest regard for Mario Soto the pitcher.
