ESPN's Simmons and Berry discuss fantasy and the Rangers

In Bill Simmon's latest 2 part podcast, he discusses fantasy baseball with Matthew Berry.  In his part 1 podcast they discuss the AL West (starting at the 28 minute mark) and spend a bit amount of time on the Rangers. They basically conclude (and I know this isn't rocket science) that Ranger hitters are going to be great for fantasy baseball. Simmons seems to think the Ranger's bullpen will be good as well and mentions Guardado, Wilson, and Francisco as positives.

In addition, Simmons actually bet money on the Rangers to win the West at 10-1 odds (supposedly).  Berry is an Angels fan and of course dismissed that possibility. I was struck with the amount of knowledge Simmons had on the Rangers minor league system. Apparently Simmons has a deep AL fantasy league that factors in minor league players and was able to name Smoak and Feliz as potential long shots to take a chance on late in the draft with a chance to contribute this year. Amazingly he didn't mention Holland.
