DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)I am in a head-to-head, AL-only keeper league. Five keepers, no restrictions (i.e., no time limit, no salary implications). Hitter categories: R, RBI, OBP, SLG, PA and A (yes, assists). Here is how I am leaning on my keeper candidates: Locks, barring injury or trade to NL: Sale and Machado Next three: Alex Bregman, Miguel Sano and Devon Travis Could move up: Nomar Mazara, Jurickson Profar, Byron Buxton Do you think I have it right?
(vgalloro from Chicago)
This is a really tough decision. I would keep Machado, Sale, Bregman and Mazara as my surefire locks. It comes down to Buxton and Sano for the final spot in my book. Given the other options you're going to have at third base between Machado and Bregman, I would lean towards Buxton. He's missed a ton of development time due to injuries and is just starting to put it together at the plate against major-league pitching, as evidenced by his performance over the last few weeks. With steals becoming so scarce in fantasy, I would gravitate towards Buxton. Devon Travis is already 25-years-old and coming off several injury riddled seasons. He and Profar (for similar reasons) are the guys I would have no problem throwing back. Thanks for the question! (George Bissell)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)When does Joey Gallo get called up for good and what do you see his future ceiling as?
(Ronnie from Nebraska)
Well as long as Beltre is at 3B it won't be there. His value is so much lower at 1B that they need an OF spot to open up before he is called up for good. Problem is that Nomar Mazara guy is pretty good and has a lockdown on RF. Shin-Soo Choo and Josh Hamilton are making a lot of money, so there isn't an everyday spot for him yet. (Steve Givarz)
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Can you rank: Nomar Mazara, Christian Yelich and Kole Calhoun? Thank you man
(Geoff from Fire Island)
Oof, that's a tough lil' group right there. If only on account of Mazara's uncertain playing time/big league roster slot once Choo is healthy, I'll begrudgingly toss him 3rd. Love Yelich and would take him above Calhoun. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-04-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a dynasty league where I have to call minor leaguers up to the majors if they compile at least 300 at bats. I don't want to call Nomara Mazara up (in order to keep his price for next season down), but I think I might have to. What percent chance would you say Mazara is to end the season with more than 300 AB's? Thanks!
(Moe from Ann Arbor)
Ninety percent. He looks legitimate, and even though there will be a logjam when Nomar Mazara returns, he adds something to the line-up even as a part-timer. It's hard to see him going down unless he really slumps. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)Follow up on your Rangers question - what do you think Desmond's arrival does to the start date of Nomar Mazara? Really want to keep him in my 5x5, but not sure if it is worth it for just 2016-17 if he is out most of this year. Thoughts?
(DDriesen from NYC)
Not sure if the bat is quite ready for prime time yet, but it's not hard to imagine him being a very good player as soon as 2017. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nick Williams, Andrew Benintendi, Lewis Brinson, and Nomar Mazara: who do you think is best in real life and in fantasy?
(nubber from tx)
Mazara. Always go with Mazara. Did you see that homer yesterday? Googily moogily. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us a couple prospects that you could see their stock blowing up this year? Robles and Espinoza aside
(Isaac from Akron)
Victor Robles blew up last year and he's my dude...Assuming you're looking for lower-level prospects with upside, not MLB-ready types, my favorites would have to be Francis Martes (Astros) and Brent Honeywell (Rays). Honeywell throws the screwball and so far nobody has been able to touch it. I also like Austin Riley (Braves). He's going to shoot up lists. If you're looking for the one big name prospect that I'm high on it's Nomar Mazara...I'm all in... (George Bissell)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who are this years Correa, Seager, and Buxton?
(Jared from Oklahoma)
I'll give you a couple prospects/young guys that step into the spotlight for me. A few established younger guys I think will bounce-back are Javier Baez, Jurickson Profar and Joey Gallo...MILB I'll go Nomar Mazara, J.P. Crawford and A.J. Reed as my big-three for hitters. (George Bissell)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Considering just future offensive production, how would you rank these four outfielders: Clint Frazier, Nick Williams, Nomar Mazara, Lewis Brinson?
(cracker73 from Florida)
Frazier, Brinson, Mazara, Williams (Mike Gianella)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Considering just future offensive production, how would you rank these four outfielders: Clint Frazier, Nick Williams, Nomar Mazara, Lewis Brinson?
(cracker73 from Florida)
a question so nice you asked it twice. (Mike Gianella)
2015-12-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think a reasonable expectation is for Nomar Mazara in 2016? Beyond? When is the soonest we can expect to see him in the majors?
(Lone Star from Texas)
Setting reasonable expectations for someone like this is tough, because I do think there's some volatility here. I would say realistically we're looking at a .280 hitter who hits 18 to 22 homers a year during his peak. There's a chance he's much, MUCH more than that. There's a chance he's frowny face. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-09-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Al, In a keeper league and can keep either Mazara or AJ Reed on my minor league roster for next season. Who projects to be the better player in an OBP league?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
I thought A.J. Reed was a very underrated prospect entering 2015. He had a monster junior year at Kentucky and then I liked what I saw in the NYPL. He's a sneaky good keeper in a OBP league. That said, Nomar Mazara is a flat out stud prospect who is going to be an impact big leaguer. Mazara an easy choice for me. (Al Skorupa)
2015-09-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks Chris. Who has the higher ceiling, Mookie Betts or Nomar Mazara? I love Betts, but I was blown away by Mazara's plate discipline as a 20-year-old in AA/AAA.
(Keith from Manchester, CT)
Mazara, by a fairly substantial margin for me. And that's not to say Betts' ceiling isn't high, it's just Mazara has as high of ceiling as any player in the minor leagues right now. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike. I know Dynasty leagues is not necessarily your cup of tea but if you feel your squad has a chance to win it this year, would you deal Marcus Stroman, Blake Snell & Nomar Mazara for Cole Hamels?
(JJ from NY)
I think that's too much for Hamels. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Have 4 nice OF prospects to possibly trade at the deadline. How would you rank these guys value in a 5x5 OBP league, with the caveat that their contracts will only run through 2017 (3 yr contract max league). Nomar Mazara, Nick Williams, Rymer Liriano, and Manuel Margot?
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
Mazara, Margot, Williams, Liriano. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)So opinions seem to be split on Nick Williams right now - what do you think?
(someone from somewhere)
I'm with Baseball Prospectus writer Kate Morrison, who gave some solid first person insights on Williams for WFAA (here: http://www.wfaa.com/story/sports/mlb/rangers/2015/07/20/breakout-nick-williams-frisco-roughriders/30407907/). I believe in the improvement, and while he doesn't quite rank as highly as Nomar Mazara, he's closed the gap, and in dynasty slots in just outside of the top 200 overall. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Nomar Mazara?
(Kate from #Texas)
Is hashtag Texas any different than Texas?

He's really good. I'd say he's a top 10 prospect now with the rush of promotions this year. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Yoan Moncada is the number 1 prospect next season?
(Craig from NJ)
It's going to depend who debuts in September, but right now only prospects not in the Majors I have over Moncada would be Corey Seager, Kyle Schwarber, Joey Gallo and Nomar Mazara. If you want to make the case for Giolito or Urias, I can see that too...That entire Greenville Drive infield is just a plethora of awesomeness right now. (George Bissell)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Which of the following do you foresee having the most impact (if any) come September and into next year: Mazara, Conforto, JP Crawford, Trea Turner and Aaron Judge?
(rpo from CHI)
Nomar Mazara and it's not even close for me. He's a potential superstar. He's been discussed internally among BP staff (as a prospect we like) more than almost anyone not named Schwarber in the last six months. (George Bissell)
2015-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on when Nomar Mazara will make The Show and what peak year might look like? Thanks!
(Spencer from ON)
The way this year is going, I'm surprised he's not already in the majors, and the way this list went, I'm really surprised it didn't happen last night immediately after I sent it to editing.

In truth, it would be early, even though he's been fantastic this year. Remember he skipped over High-A ball to get to Double-A. Jumping him to the majors from here would represent a really dramatic rise in competition level in a short period. He may actually be able to handle it, that's how good he's been, but it seems like a lot to unnecessarily throw at a player. (Jeff Moore)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Chances Nomar Mazara is up this year? Rangers are already showing being aggressive with him as they promoted him from A to AA and skipped A+ all together. And they aggressively promoted Odor from AA to the MLB. Given their aggressive nature and already noted aggressive approach with Mazara, what do you think are the chances he plays in the MLB this year?
(Scott from Piscataway)
Mazara turned 20 in April and Odor seems to be on his way back to the minors. No chance we see Mazara up this year, sorry. (Nick Shlain)
2015-04-29 20:00:00 (link to chat)How much fantasy upside does Nomar Mazara have? 30 HR's and a .260 AVG? Do you think he'll be a top 10 prospect by season's end?
(Albert from Ridgewood)
I was actually having this exact conversation with Ben, Craig and Mau randomly a few weeks ago. I think he is very close to a top-10 prospect, but not quite there. Also, that sells him short in the upside department. He could hit .280-plus at peak, with that power to boot, if it really clicks. (Bret Sayre)
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Nick Williams' start to the season? Heard recently that he claims that he should be able to go 30/30 this year. Have you heard anything about an improved approach? I know it's very early, but Scott Lucas' twitter was saying that Nomar Mazara has 3x as many balls in play than swinging strikes at 26:8. Nick Williams has 33 balls in play to 11 swinging strikes, so a 3:1 ratio. Last year, Williams had a .9 ratio. Like I said, still very early, but could this be a sign of something? Thanks a ton for all the work you do here CJ. Really awesome site that just keeps getting better.
(Bill Clinton from Las Vegas)
I think we would see Nick Williams in Texas pretty soon if he continued this ratio. I really hope Nick Williams does go 30/30 this year. I'm pretty high on him as a player and despite the aggressive approach I still put a lot of stock in his bat. I had Williams timed in the 7 run range, from home to 1B, but he doesn't utilize his speed on the bases that well. (CJ Wittmann)
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)Nomar Mazara vs Rafael Devers, who would you rather. For fantasy purposes of course.
(Harold from The Studio)
Mazara by 3 Gallo home runs laid end to end. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some prospects that you are personally higher on than others? Who are some you're lower on than others too? Thanks Chris and welcome to BP.
(Bill Clinton from Las Vegas)
Dang, the president is congratulating me. This truly is the greatest day!

I feel like I'm a lot higher on Austin Meadows than everyone else. I see a ton of plus tools, and I think he could win a batting title someday while playing a quality centerfield. That's pretty good, right?

Couple guys I'm lower on are Clint Frazier, Nomar Mazara and Matz. I say Matz because I can't recall if it's Stephen or Steven. Sorry, Matz. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on what you've seen from Nomar Mazara?
(DC80 from Oklahoma)
Stud. When I wasn't seeing him do crazy things people we're going out of their way to tell me about how good he is. This is the guy everyone was talking about. His swing got better, he got stronger, he must have dominated the offseason. This kid left my jaw on the floor. (Ryan Parker)
2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)Other than maybe some different names at the back end, would there be any significant ranking differences between the BP 101 and your personal 101?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
I can't really speak to that since the BP 101 isn't officially released yet. But, in general, some guys I'm higher on than other lists are: Tyler Glasnow, Reese McGuire, Aaron Judge, Manuel Margot, Brandon Drury, Nomar Mazara, ad Jorge Mateo. Guys I'm a bit lower on: Aaron Sanchez, Nick Williams, Josh Bell, Matt Olson, Hunter Harvey, Tyrone Taylor, Luis Severino, Brandon Nimmo. Hope that helps. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Is Nomar Mazara a stud or just a guy?
(Victor from Dumfries)
Closer to stud. I'm not as high on him as, say, Craig Goldstein is, but he's a no-doubt first-division starter and a No. 2/3 fantasy OF for me if it all clicks. (Ben Carsley)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark, what are your thoughts on Ryan McMahon and Nomar Mazara heading into 2015 & beyond? Think both can become role 6 type players?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Everything would have to break perfectly for McMahon to reach a role 6 profile, and I have trouble getting there when I see him or consider the package of skills and ability. I like McMahaon, but I think he ends up more of a solid regular than a standout player. I'm biting a little harder on Mazara, and I would be willing to say he has a reasonable chance to develop into a role 6 type.

Both players need to continue making strides in 2015, and I think Mazara is a little further ahead in terms of his feel for the game, giving him a slight leg up in the race for the big leagues. (Mark Anderson)
2014-12-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Same question I asked Nick: We know Kevin Goldstein loved second basemen who could hit, and Jason Parks had a collection of prospect markers that always caught his eye (Texans, Venezuelan shortstops, etc.). What archetypes do you especially favor?
(justarobert from Santa Clara)
This is a really good question:

I'm a big one for players who make it look natural or easy, whether it a position player or pitcher. You'll probably notice that I tend to highlight things like "loose hands", "easy delivery", "effortless," and what-have-you in my reports. I definitely tend to favor those type of players and gravitate towards them.

Nomar Mazara is one who comes to mind as an example. When you watch him swing it is just so effortless and easy. It's tough really put into words, but the stroke just kind of looks like to be barely moving and then suddenly the ball explodes off the bat with such a distinct sound. It gets my attention. (Top 10s Chat With Chris Mellen)
2014-12-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)What type of year do you expect from Nomar Mazara at AA? Can he force a call up to Texas? Does his power play in MLB immediately? Or will he struggle to make consistent contact?
(Rob from CA)
I see it overall having the potential to be a successful one, but would expect things to be uneven at times. All the talent and potential are there for Mazara to develop into a good one down the line. The thing right now that I will look for is how well (and quickly) he can adjust at Double-A the second and third time through. Pitchers are likely going to figure out that Mazara can be overly aggressive. If he shows he can mitigate that aspect and is trending towards settling things down a bit, then I see can see him making even more waves this coming season.

We're probably a year early on talking major-leagues. The power, in my opinion, is more likely to crest over the course of his early career as he finds his footing. He's not a home run hitter and is more of a player that is going to hit home runs because he makes consistent hard contract, with natural loft in the swing. So, yes, I do think there will be some lead time on consistently making contact at the highest level, but things at peak can be very, very big. (Top 10s Chat With Chris Mellen)
2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)Rank Lewis Brinson, Nomar Mazara, and Nick Williams for who is the most fun to watch play ball.
(Reverseman from dallas)
I haven't personally seen Lewis Brinson, but of Nomar Mazara and Nick Williams, I prefer watching Mazara. It really depends on what you like watching. Do you like fast guys who swing really hard? Then you'll like Williams. Do you like a more-mature approaches at the plate? Maz is your dude. (Kate Morrison)
2015-01-08 12:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jeff, what are your thoughts on Ryan McMahon and Nomar Mazara heading into 2015 & beyond? Think both can become role 6 type players?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Another great question for the prospect guys, but I will say that I'm really high on Mazara. I already yelled at Tucker Blair for picking him up in our dynasty league before I could. (Jeff Long)
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)I play in a dynasty league with no floor or ceiling on number of minor leaguers rostered - it's up to each owner's discretion. I have a contender - how do you decide between lower ceiling MLB guys and higher upside guys that may be years away? For example, Rubby de la Rosa versus Raimel Tapia? Matt Shoemaker versus Nomar Mazara?
(JoJo from SD)
Tapia and Mazara are guys I'd definitely own but part of it depends on league depth. I'd have to assume you have worse guys than those two to drop, but if you don't, then I'd have to assume that the league is fairly shallow. If that's the case, you don't need to own RDLR, and Shoemaker is more borderline, though I'd make an effort to keep him. This is a great type of question for The Bat Signal, where you can drop your whole roster/league parameters and we can get a better sense of the situation. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Craig, what are your thoughts on Ryan McMahon and Nomar Mazara heading into 2015 & beyond? Think both can become role 6 type players?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
I think they can both do that yes, but I'll stop short of saying they will. I like Mazara more than McMahon, though I think both could raise their prospect stock throughout 2015. Mazara merely has to survive to prove his worth in Double-A at his age, really. Without saying it's likely for either player, I like Mazara's odds a little better, though both rank among my personal favorites in the game. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)How good can Nomar Mazara be? Top 15 prospect by season's end?
(Nick from LA)
That's certainly possible. I love Mazara's offensive potential. I love how natural and fluid he is with his stroke. The big tell is going to be how he adjusts once the book gets out a bit in Double-A and he sees more secondary stuff. That adjustment is probably going to be the difference between being in the Top 20 conversation versus regressing a little bit. (Top 101 Chat)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)While I do not deny the awesome power of all things #DIESEL, I do wish we could have a little more #rig and #sparkle sprinkled in... After all, is baseball not for #lovers? That being said, who would be your top 3 or top 5 players based purely on #DIESEL.
(nzach54 from Los Feliz, CA)
In no particular order: Byron Buxton, Hunter Harvey, Nomar Mazara, Francisco Mejia, and Blake Swihart. (Top 101 Chat)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark, what would your order be of these prospects if you had them in your farm? Alexander Reyes, Nomar Mazara, Leonardo Molina, Jairo Labourt, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Mazara, Reyes, McMahon, Molina, Labourt. (Mark Anderson)
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)
