Nomar Mazara

If the Texas Rangers fear forgoing Gallo’s potential then they should probably fear forgoing Mazara’s potential as well. Who knows which player will go on to have a better career, but it’s best the Rangers fight future battles with the both of them on their side.

Mazara would probably warrant the most profound haul to the Rangers. But, just as the Rangers need Gallo’s power in the lineup, they need Mazara’s reliable bat in the lineup. The 23-year-old has MVP potential. He’s also Texas’ best shot at a perennial all-star. Giving up Mazara could set the franchise back just as it pushes the franchise forward.

A Nomar Mazara trade would be acceptable only if it lands the Rangers a top 3 starting pitching prospect. Again, it’s always a risk to trade an established big leaguer for prospect talent, no matter how talented the prospect is. And the Rangers wouldn’t be trading a 33-year-old getting ready to move beyond his prime. Rather, they’d be trading a player that is getting ready to enter his prime.
