Continue To Acquire Prospects, Even If It Means Unpopular Moves
This one seems like a no-brainer but we’ll go ahead and say it anyways. Texas has done an outstanding job acquiring prospects since they’ve embarked on this rebuild. Over 20 at my last count in a fairly short amount of time.
Acquiring the talent Texas is looking for though means making those uncomfortable decisions. It may mean trading young Major League talent for even more young talent. It may mean trading fan favorites and success this season for long-term success over years. However they do it, Texas can’t stop building the upper levels of their minor league system. It’s crucial if they want any shot at being competitve down the road.
