Ask BA on the Rangers 

The latest Ask BA has two of its four questions relating to Rangers topics -- first, a query about why Baseball America ranked the Rangers where they did in the organizational rankings, and second, a comparison of Juan Samuel and Alfonso Soriano.

I always thought Samuel was a pretty good comp for Soriano, although Soriano has been a better player. I liked Samuel when I was growing up, and was absolutely mystified about why he fell of the map when he did. Another similar player -- Latin American second baseman with some pop and little fielding ability -- is Carlos Baerga, who crashed and burn young, as well, although he's revived his career as a utility player as of late.
