Amidst all of the Ozzie bashing and 24 7 Clemens this is nice to see.

Great piece.

He appreciates that Cooper can communicate with him in Spanish and that he encourages him to prepare for starts his own way rather than forcing another system on him.

Imagine what Coop's Spanish must sound like with that New Yorkey accent.

"I've always felt that Cuban pitchers, the ones who float up on shore, they can really pitch,''

What a quote!

Boggles the mind to think that we got him AND YEARLY SALARY BOOSTS FROM THE SPANKMES for a crappy Loaiza! Goes down with the Cintron-Bajenaru trade as kenny's genius. How, oh how does he do it. :?: Though I'd give a lot of credit to Coop's magic as well because jose wasn't exactly at his current form when we got him.

Thanks for the link. That was great. Rogers is as frustrating as Contreras was before he started pitching up to his potential. He shows us he can write but refuses to write three solid pieces about the Sox in a row. Maybe it just seems that way to me. In any case, a great article.

And Coop took none of the credit for it.

I can't say anything more about the year I have had,'' Contreras said earlier this week, with manager Ozzie Guillen Jr. serving as a translator.

Brilliant!

Great article. I had no idea Coop spoke Spanish.I had my suspisions reading the article, and I then confirmed them when I looked at the top and saw Rogers had written it. Rogers is one of the few people who is fair to the Sox on the Cubune staff. I also believe he posts here on occasion. He's a truly great writer.

Thanks for posting the article by Phil Rogers. It is nice to read a positive story about the White Sox. Jose has been a lot of fun to watch and hopefully he will be pitching here for many years.
