I am now working on the New York Mets Top 20 prospects list for 2018. The next team in line is the Texas Rangers, to be followed by the Milwaukee Brewers, Tampa Bay Rays, San Francisco Giants, Detroit Tigers, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Toronto Blue Jays, and finally the St. Louis Cardinals to finish the process.
Use this thread to discuss the Rangers system. Some possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
****The Rangers finished 78-84, third place in the American League Western Division. What are your expectations for 2018? Can they get back over .500? Challenge for 90 wins and the division crown? Or will they fall further back in the pack and need a complete makeover?
****How do you feel about Joey Gallo today? How will you feel about him next September?
****Nomar Mazara’s 2017 was very similar to his 2016 debut. He’s still just 22 years old. Does he take another step forward?
****What are your plans for prospects Willie Calhoun and Ronald Guzman?
****If you were put in charge of the farm system today, what, if anything, would you do differently?
****As always, feel free to discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Rangers-oriented.
