I always say that for me the Cubans invented this game. I have many friends there, he said exclusively for Prensa Latina before starting his journey at the event.
Oliveras already has two titles to his credit in these contests, one with this same squad in 1993, and another in 2000 with the Santurce Cangrejeros.
However, he defends his new mission at the head of the Puerto Ricans with the utmost simplicity.
I take it calmly, rejoicing for the opportunity to once again be in a Caribbean Series. I never thought I would be in one, so I’m very happy, he said.
Regarding the aspirations of Puerto Ricans, he pointed out that he will try to take the crown.
We know it’s not going to be easy but we’re going to do our best to win the title. I think our strong point is pitching. We behaved well all year in the League, and now we expect the same, he commented.
Regarding the reinforcements, he assured that he received them very well, and believes they intelligently strengthened the team.
He did not want to talk about the rotation plan, so as not to give information to the enemy, as he said smiling.
Finally, he did not want to assess the format extended to eight teams at this time, and promised to take stock at the end.
