BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who ya got: Manny Margot v Nomar Mazara?
(Jake from Houston)
Mazara every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I still love Margot but Mazara is ahead for me. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you love, like-like, or just like Nomar Mazara? What about Ryan Cordell?
(MonkeyEpoxy from Amarillo)
LOVE and that may be an understatement. Mazara oozes talent. I sat on a series last season when he was in Hickory. He plays with such confidence and the barrel skills are there. The raw power showed in BP and in-game, along with him making good reads and throws from the outfield. The promotion to AA at age 19 didn't surprised me a bit. Although, it did sadden me since I missed him coming to Myrtle Beach. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks C.J. Could you rank these prospects in terms of ceiling: Nomar Mazara, Franklin Barreto, and Manuel Margot.
(Keith from Manchester, CT)
In the order you have them, in my opinion. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi CJ. A Rangers fan here. Really enjoyed your report about Gallo earlier this year. I think you noticed his change before a lot of people did. My question is about Mazara: Is there any report for Rangers prospect Nomar Mazara in AA? He still looks comfortable there as a 19 yo. Also, has anyone seem him earlier and late this year and known what adjustment he made to break out? It doesn't seem to be a hot/cold thing.
(Alvin from Chicago, IL)
Thank you, I like to think I was on Gallo early. I don't think we have anyone in that area but I know that when I saw him last season it was small tweaks in approach and minor adjustments in "the game within the game". He would get down on himself so easily and lose focus for the duration of the game. But that is common for a young prospect. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Give me two prospects that wouldn't be in a top 20 right now, but will be this time next year.
(Chuck from a deep-ass league)
Nomar Mazara, Hunter Harvey. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Nomar Mazara have All-Star potential with the bat or is that being too optimistic?
(Mike from TX)
i believe he does. Plus in both aspects of hit and power. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are you concerned at all about Nomar Mazara's struggles vs LHP the last couple years?
(John from Fort Worth)
It is a concern but he has shown the ability to adjust. I don't think he will get torn apart at the bigs but it may take him a while to be consistent. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the upside for Nomar Mazara? Higher than Lewis Brinson or Dalton Pompey?
(Matt from Bluegrass State)
I am not high on Pompey. I think he's a second division type. Just not that impressed with the hit tool.

Brinson has a high ceiling and low floor, so I think Mazara fits somewhere in between them for upside. I am pissed that Mazara skipped High-A, as I won't be able to see him with Myrtle Beach now. (Tucker Blair)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Craig, what's your thoughts on Ryan McMahon & Nomar Mazara this season and going forward? You think they will land somewhere in your Top-100 maybe 50 for 2015?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
They're two of "my guys." I think Mazara getting pushed to Double-A really helps him, as it pushes his timetable up if he can even hold his own while there. I do think both are back of the top 100 talents for fantasy, though I'd hesitate to say either are top 50 guys just yet. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-31 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben whats your thoughts on Nomar Mazara? Do you see him moving into the Fantasy Prospects Top 100 in 2015?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
He could, sure. Performing pretty well as a 19-year-old in Single-A and he's another Texas tool shed. Craig loves him, though, which is a red flag. (Ben Carsley)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Recognizing they weren't candidates for this list, how are Nomar Mazara and Ronald Guzman progressing?
(Rob from Alaska)
Mazara is climbing quickly; likely to be a top 101 this off-season. Very good hitter that is likely to explode in the next few seasons. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Nomar Mazara and Gabriel Guerrero? Do both emerge as top 101 prospects by the end of the year?
(ahs430 from Anaheim, CA)
I don't have any thoughts on them, sorry. The minors are not my strongest suit. I end up watching a lot of MILB.tv in the offseason to catch up on young arms, but otherwise, I'm pretty firmly focused on watching MLB. (Paul Sporer)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)What future do you see for Nomar Mazara?
(Daff from Sheffield, UK)
1st-division RF at the major league level, with the ability to hit for both average and power with a plus arm. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Can you rank Ron Guzman, Tim Anderson, Frenchy Cordero, and Nomar Mazara in Dynasty League
(Silverback38 from VA)
Mazara, Guzman, Cordero, Anderson. I know Bret loves Tim - as does Parks - and you should probably weight their assessments over mine, but I think there's potential for the hit tool to sink Anderson. I love Mazara and I think he might be the best of that Hickory/Myrtle group of prospects, outside of Alfaro. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your favorite bat in the big swinging (and oft missing) Hickory lineup?
(Gary from Long Beach)
I loved watching the Hickory team. I really liked Nomar Mazara at the plate. Joey Gallo hit a homerun that made an impession on my mind, and I really still believe in Lewis Brinson. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)What is Nomar Mazara's ceiling? 30+hr with 240avg? or can he get closer to 270?
(Bored from at work)
I think Mazara is a ~.260 hitter with roughly 25 HR annually. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do Ronald Guzman and Nomar Mazara appear to be living up to their international hype? Are they Top 100 types by the end of the season?
(jaymoff from Salem)
Probably not top 100 types this year, but they have the potential to be down the line. Living up to the hype so far, for me. (Jason Cole)
