On Jeremy Sowers and first rounders from the state of Texas 

Good Baseball America article, taking a look at SEC lefties, including Jeremy Sowers, who would seem to be a likely candidate for the Rangers to pop if he is still there at #10. Sowers is a lefty with the "pitchability" Grady Fuson covets, and even though his fastball hits only 91 on a good day, John Manuel notes that his ability to command four pitches makes him someone who should be close to the majors.

Manuel also discusses possible first round pitchers from Texas, including the impressive Rice trio of Jeff Niemann, Wade Townsend and Phil Humber, and LaGrange lefty Homer Bailey, all of whom could be gone when the Rangers make their selection.
