CHICAGO -- When asked for the early identity of his 2014 White Sox, manager Robin Ventura went with the word "resilient."

"If we get down, we can come back. We didn't necessarily have that last year," Ventura said. "Offensively, we feel pretty good about being able to claw back into the game and take the lead."

Ventura understands that the resiliency he speaks of has to show more than once or twice to cultivate that feeling among the team.

"You can sit there and try to fool yourself into being one thing, but if it doesn't happen ... I see that with us, as far as early on being able to come back once you're down," Ventura said. "And that's something that has to happen more than once and you have to believe it."
