Olsen, 28, signed with the Pirates last offseason, but he had shoulder problems and they released him in May. He was a serviceable starter for the Marlins from 2006-08, when he posted a 4.65 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9 in 559 innings as a starter.

Ventura participates in Blackhawks "Shoot the Puck" contest

2

First-year White Sox manager Robin Ventura was one of the "Shoot the Puck" contestants at Tuesday's Blackhawks game. The crowd gave the new South Side skipper a warm ovation as he stepped up to shoot. Ventura didn't make any of his three shots. He got close, but no cigar. But hey, it's all about the experience right? In a chat before his shot with CSN's Sarah Kustok, Ventura talked about the upcoming SoxFest as well as impending spring training. Ventura also discussed how proud he was to be back with the White Sox. Take a look at his hockey form and the interview:

MLB Daily Dish: Chicago White Sox complete organizational chart

10

Our friend Justin at MLB Daily Dish is compiling depth chart, salary and service time information for all MLB teams and their affiliates, on a more granular level than other charts. He's welcoming feedback, suggestions and corrections (although when it comes to the minor-league teams, it's probably not worth picking nits until early April).

The Blue Jays announced that they have given Mark Teahen his unconditional release. They designated the infielder/outfielder for assignment earlier in the month and will be responsible for paying his $5.5MM salary in 2012. Teahen joined the Blue Jays in the three-way deal that sent Edwin Jackson to St. Louis and Colby Rasmus to Toronto. The 30-year-old posted a .200/.273/.300 line in 177 plate appearances for the White Sox and Blue Jays in 2011, appearing at all four corner positions.

ahhh Beautiful Camel Back Ranch in sunny Glendale AZ...a couple friends and I are going to meth up in Scottsdale to play some golf and raid the fridge in some 16000 sqft house and I was curious as to which SSSers have ever been out there. Unfortunately our trip falls short of the first game as we leave the evening of the 4th but does anyone know if we can tour the facilities and watch some practice drills or anything of the sort. Any tips, tricks, or ideas are welcomed. Will my SSS press Badge work?

Florida White Sox

11

I came across this interesting article in the Sports Illustrated archives about the White Sox possible move to Florida back in 1988-89. Knowing what we know now about how the next 20 years of Chicago baseball fleshed out, it is a wonderful trip down memory lane. Personally, i remember staying up with my father, listening to the radio, waiting for word on whether the White Sox were going to Florida or not. I think the announcement came shortly before midnight. Thank Christ.

Produce a :30 Spot for Lame Slogan - Win $7,500!

Taking a monumental step back from 2011's "We're All In" campaign, for 2012 apparently the Sox are going with...get ready to be disappointed..."Appreciate the Game" (a.k.a. "Please Don't Boo Adam Dunn"). The good news is you can win $7,500 if you are one of four lucky ducks to produce an awe-inspiring :30 spot in support of the 2012 mantra. I'd like to write more, but I really need to get cracking on my script! Good luck all!

Daryl Van Schouwen says it's down to the Sox, Cubs, Marlins, Orioles, Tigers, and Indians for Yoenis Cespedes. At least we know the competition now.
