White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

It's the first spring training report of the year! Chuck Garfien filed from Glendale looking at the beginning of Robin Ventura's managerial journey.

Tony Andracki and I debuted our first All-Chicago decade team looking at 2000-2011. This'll be a feature that runs every Wednesday, so check back next week for the All-Chicago team from the 1990s.

Ryan McGuffey weighed in with his look at five burning questions that the Sox need to answer, including a look at how the Sox will attempt to replace Mark Buehrle.

Matt Thornton looks like the favorite to take over the ninth inning role in place of Sergio Santos, although Addison Reed can begin to build his case to be next in line this spring.

Jesse Crain made a noble effort to discuss the Tigers in a way that's optimistic for the White Sox, but it's hard to see Prince Fielder not being a significant offensive upgrade over Victor Martinez this season.

The Indians, who agreed to a minor-league contract with Jon Garland last week, pulled the deal off the table after Garland didn't take a physical. The former White Sox starter is now back on the market, rehabbing his surgically-repaired shoulder.

And finally, James has some thoughts about spring training being sort-of here while Jerod Morris offers up seven reasons to be optimistic about the White Sox.
