The lasting quality

The maturity and makeup of these two young studs is sensational. Nomar Mazara isn’t known as “The Big Chill” just because the nickname sounds cool. Rather, he owns that nickname because he remains calm at all times, at least from an outsider’s perspective.

Need I remind everyone he’s only 23 years old? Mazara’s calmness certainly filters throughout the clubhouse, especially with the number of rookies that are currently on the roster. His calm confidence is an invaluable quality and it leads you to believe he’ll be showing off that quality in the big leagues for many years to come.

Joey Gallo could probably be nicknamed “Big Chill #2”. The 24-year-old also expresses a calm confidence. Gallo’s calm confidence may be even more impressive given the fact that he strikes out substantially more than Mazara. Those of us who have played baseball can surely appreciate a player that doesn’t get visually upset after coming up whiffing.

Remarkably, “Big Chill” and “Big Chill #2” are taking the field everyday as if they’ve already been in the major leagues for 10 years.
