Oh, and they’re both super talented
Talent triumphs all else with Mazara and Gallo. There’s a reason each was raved about long before reaching the majors. Obviously, Gallo has the capability to hit 40+ home runs a year if he’s healthy. His power is matched by maybe two or three players in all of baseball. Barring injury or any unforeseen setbacks, Joey Gallo has the potential to be a historical power hitter. That’s special.
Nomar Mazara is a pure hitter. He has a sweet swing from the left side that almost anyone would envy. He has plate discipline, he hits for good contact, and he has the ability to drive the ball gap-to-gap, while also being able to hit a ball 430 feet. Nomar Mazara looks every bit like a soon-to-be perennial all-star.
There is no ceiling for Joey Gallo or Nomar Mazara. They will be headliners in the MLB for who knows how long. And the best part is…they’ll be making headlines while wearing Texas Rangers uniforms.
So, take a moment to appreciate what we’re already witnessing. Look beyond the haze of the rough start to the Texas Rangers season and get excited about what is to come.
