From yesterday:

We're giving away a 1972 Bill Melton White Sox throwback jersey autographed by Beltin' Bill himself. To win it, all you need to do is follow @WhiteSoxTalkCSN and send us a tweet with a memory, experience, favorite player, favorite moment, photograph -- anything -- from the White Sox 2005 run to the World Series.

The White Sox will wear those '72 throwback uniforms for every Sunday home game. They look pretty sweet, to say the least.

The 1972 season saw Dick Allen win the AL MVP and Wilbur Wood throw and ungodly amount of innings, among other happenings on the South Side.

Area native Scott Olsen signed a minor-league deal with the White Sox. He'll probably slot in to Charlotte's starting rotation.

The Cubs appear to be the frontrunners to sign Yoenis Cespedes, with the White Sox behind Miami and Baltimore to sign the newly-minted free agent.

Addison Reed was ranked as the No. 100 prospect in baseball by MLB.com. He was the only Sox player to make the list.

Finally, AJ Pierzynski joined Chicago Tribune Live and noted that he won't talk about Ozzie Guillen once spring training rolls around. Hopefully his teammates will join him in that regard.
