BA Chat Action

Lots of good action in the BA chat:

Justin Abilene Tx: Matt Harrison Pitched great for my rangers last night against a very good angels team, in your opinion is this a fluke or is he the real thing?

SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:08 PM ET ) I'm not saying he'll pitch like that every time out, but Harrison can become a solid mid-rotation starter.

 

Porkchop: Can Neftali Feliz crack your top 25 by next year?

SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:10 PM ET ) Yes. We're updating our overall top 25 in the current issue (it will be up at baseballamerica.com shortly as well), and Feliz may be higher than you suspect.

Ray, St Louis: Read where Feliz was regularly throwing in the upper 90's and touched 101 several times. Wow! How far off is he from pitching for the Ragners?

SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:13 PM ET ) He only turned 20 two months ago and he's only in low Class A, so it's more a matter of being patient than anything. I think the Rangers will avoid rushing him, but he may push his way to Texas sometime next year.

Porkchop's dad (Minden, La.): What do you think about Chris Davis? Do you think there's any chance Texas sends him back to AAA when Blalock comes back? I hope not.

SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:14 PM ET ) I think that would be a hard sell. Davis has torn up the minors the last two years and has five homers in his first 12 big league games.

Taylor, Atl: Hearing all the prospects the Braves gave up for Teixeira playing great in the Rangers system makes me sick! Salty is growing as a player, Andrus looks like the future SS, Feliz a potential ace, Harrison a 3-4 starter, and Beau Jones a hard throwing lefty out of the pen. Question is, if the Braves look move Teixeira can they get half of what they gave up to get him? Thanks!

SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:15 PM ET ) Probably not much more than half, considering Teixeira will test free agency after the season.

Brock Sampson: Trevor Cahill or Neftali Feliz?

SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:41 PM ET ) Feliz.
