Dave Cameron's 2/16/11 Chat - Rangers Questions

[Comment From Joe] 

Piggybacking off of Andrew's question, it seems like Nolan Ryan's regimen for building arm strength was awfully effective (although it was only one year). We've also seen Dice-K (generally) stay healthy and we know he throws a lot. Maybe pitchers just need to avoid excessive downtime?

Dave Cameron: 

I always chuckle when people talk about how important Nolan Ryan's influence was on the Rangers pitching staff, but they ignore the fact that the team simply upgraded their defense and added Colby Lewis to the rotation. It's not like they turned a bunch of crap into gold with long toss.

Is Oakland a front runner now for the AL West? Though the pitchers should regress, the A's will get a full year from Anderson (hopefully) and will score many many more runs.

Dave Cameron: 

I have them a significant step behind Texas

doesnt Michael Young seem to fit on the cubs? replaces DeWitt as a starter this year at 2nd, then moves to 3rd once Aram's deal is up next winter

Dave Cameron: 

Michael Young does not fit for an NL team that wants to win. He's a bad defensive infielder who is only getting older and slower. The Rangers had the right idea - he's a DH.

Favorite place to get a quick bite to eat?

Dave Cameron: 

Chick-Fil-A. If you don't have one of those around, Chipotle.
