From yesterday:

We previewed SoxFest, which kicks off at 4:00 p.m. with the opening ceremonies on Comcast SportsNet and CSNChicago.com this afternoon. If you're going to SoxFest, Sunday-only passes are sold out. But you can win a weekend pass by liking us on Facebook and clicking on the "Win SoxFest passes" tab on the page!

Also, we'll announce the winner of the autographed 1972 throwback Bill Melton jersey today on Chicago Tribune Live. If you haven't submitted a memory of the 2005 White Sox season to @WhiteSoxTalkCSN (which you have to follow to win), do so now!

Robin Ventura joined Chicago Tribune Live, and discussed his managerial style (sidebar video), the team's 1972 throwback uniforms, his starting rotation and A.J. Pierzynski and Tyler Flowers.

Comcast SportsNet will televise five spring training games. For the full radioTVonline stream schedule for spring training, click here.

In non-Sox news, we looked at how Prince Fielder's contract may pan out, and why the Sox should hit balls to third base a whole lot in the next few years.
