This afternoon the White Sox officially introduced Robin Ventura as their new manager and Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that he signed a three-year contract that runs through 2014.

Ozzie Guillen had one season remaining on his contract with the White Sox, but received a four-year, $10 million extension from the Marlins.

Asked about his managing style, Ventura said:

Just being truthful, being upfront, honest and fair, really. I think everybody’s accountable and as being a player, guys like that. Guys know what to expect, they like that. As a manager, I don’t change day-to-day, and I think that’d be part of the draw. I’m pretty much the same every day, and they’ll know what to expect.

Of course, that’s all just in theory since Ventura has yet to actually manage anywhere.

    I can’t wait. This ain’t brain surgery. These have all been around the game since they were in the 1st grade.

    Chicago’s gain is Macondo’s loss.
