The Chicago White Sox are about to enter the newest era in their long franchise history as spring training has arrived.
New manager Robin Ventura is no doubt eager to have all his players arrive in Glendale, Arizona so that they can stop talking about it and get to work.

As always, there will be positional battles as well as battles to earn a spot on the pitching staff as new faces try to break into the big leagues and veterans try to stay there.
