SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Robin Ventura began his Friday meeting with the Chicago media by stating, with a wry smile, that "it's the same news as yesterday."
Apparently, the White Sox manager is ready to move on from Arizona to the 2012 regular season just like his players.
"I don't think it's getting old, but I think everybody is ready to go," Ventura said. "That's a good thing, instead of having guys wanting another couple of weeks here. You want them ready to go and feeling like they have gotten everything in they need to get in."
Before the White Sox travel to Houston on Monday evening, they still have to officially announce their final position player and two relievers. Ventura said those decisions probably would be made public Sunday, and that the higher-ups already have a decent idea of the final calls.
"Yeah, we have a decent idea," Ventura said. "But again, you never know what's going to happen, so that's why we are waiting."
