Profar was just 20 years old this year. But he also stunk up the heart of Texas. His ceiling is Barry Larkin. His floor is a utility infielder. Not every top prospect turns into gold. Just look at BA's top 10 lists from recent years. For fun I pulled up the 2008 list.

Some real stars here. But also some duds.
I think that top prospects are nice but a bird in the hand is worth 2 prospects in the bush. Also since Profar has not hit the ground running I think his value is not the same as it would have been 1 year ago.
I think Texas would be thrilled to get Bailey with a 48 hour window to extend in exchange for Profar. They have money. They need talent. And right now Bailey is really good whereas Profar is not so good.
In fact I'd ask for Profar & Gentry in exchange for Bailey with 48 hours to extend him.
