He's light on Rangers. 

Also, what would happen if Julio Teheran gave up a ton of runs to the NYY?  would Ahmedinejad use it as an excuse to use go on the offense if he saw the headline, "Teheran Bombed by Yankees?"

Some comments on Nats prospects:

Quote
John (DC): Does Stephen Strasburg have the capability to be better than Tim Lincecum in a few years?

Kevin Goldstein: The capability? Yes. That doesn't mean it will happen. He has better pure stuff than arguably any pitcher in the game.


Quote
Gregjitsu (SoCal): "I think in general it's best to go pro, but obviously there are exceptions." Can you mention some specific exceptions that would make college better for some kids than others? Just curious. Thanks.

Kevin Goldstein: Stephen Strasburg.

Quote
Marcus (Silver Spring): If Nats sign Dunn long term will Marrero move back to the outfield and his value increase?

Kevin Goldstein: I don't think Marrero would work in the outfield at all.


Quote
Chad (Fairfax): Whats the latest on Josh Smoker and Jack McGeary?

Kevin Goldstein: If you can't say something nice . . .


...and on Harper:
Quote
Paul (DC): Bryce Harper - too much hype too early? talented enough to crack your Top 100 prospect list (if eligible)? are both view points true?

Kevin Goldstein: He'd be a single digit guy. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Bryce Harper is the best player in the 2010 draft, but at the same time, Bryce Harper is the most overrated player in the 2010 draft. He is not baseball's LeBron or anything.

Quote
Joe (Pa): Odds on Harper being available when the Pirates pick?

Kevin Goldstein: Well over 50%. Chances of the Pirates taking Harper is he's there? Miniscule.

Quote
lemppi (Ankeny, IA): Could Bryce Harper fall something like Porcello did? Maybe late teens?

Kevin Goldstein: Or even further.
