Cuba was the only team that had an official team manager, and also a political commissar appointed by the Communist Party of Cuba, Victor Mesa (VM).
I guess that the political commissars appointed by the one-party state are now called "technical advisers" in the island. It is very similar to Obama calling his health care "affordable health care" when it is not. It is amazing the similarities between Cuba under Raul Castro and USA under Barack Obama.
I blame the "technical adviser" for the disastrous baseball loss of Cuba in the 2014 Caribbean Series. It is similar to the five consecutive game losses of VM against a USA team of college players in North Carolina in the summer of 2013.
Last, but not least, Cuban baseball lately has been all hype and no productivity in the baseball diamond.
Political correctness and political ideology do not win baseball games.
