CHICAGO -- This weekend's Interleague visit from the Astros marks the third regular-season series between the two teams since the 2005 World Series, with all three of those series taking place in Chicago.
Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski are the only two remaining White Sox players from the 2005 World Series champions, while Friday's starter Wandy Rodriguez is the only holdover from the '05 Astros.
Any game with the Astros brings back memories, but it was the two games played in Houston at the end of this past Spring Training that really stirred up the White Sox World Series feelings.
"That was where we won," said Pierzynski of completing the four-game sweep in Houston. "You know, there are always memories whenever you see them."
