SEATTLE -- Even though the White Sox have struggled offensively to begin the season, don't expect manager Robin Ventura to publicly call out any players. The first-year manager said he prefers to keep the lines of communication open, but behind closed doors.

"I don't think I have to do it publicly -- we'll definitely do it within the clubhouse," Ventura said. "I've just always felt that way. I've played on teams, [and] that was how it was done.

"To me, that was the right way to do it; That was the way I came up in the game, the guys that you learn from and respect the most, that was the way it was done."

Ventura said that doesn't mean he'll shy away from difficult subjects with the players, but he doesn't feel it's necessary to do it in a public setting.
