The article is on Contreras, but the praise for Ozzie is huge in this part of the article. (Is Oz or Cooper the genius?) Link follows. :



“He’s got all these arm angles now that make it really tough on the hitters. I don’t ever remember him dropping down on right-handers like he does now, but that’s (White Sox manager) Ozzie Guillen.
“Last year, he told Contreras to close his eyes and pretend he was in Cuba pitching and do what he does best, and he got away from everything the Yankees tried to get him to do. “He’s just himself. If he remembers that, and he stays healthy, with this Sox offense he could be unbeatable for a long time.’’

The story I heard is that it was El Duque who came up with the idea to "pretend that you are back pitching in Cuba and do what you did there. Do what comes naturally to you." I don't know where I read it, probably the Southtown but I distinctly remember El Duque getting credit for the idea.
