Default My dad is a pro little league scout.

Says you should invest in players that like turtles.

Players that like turtles grow up to be all stars.

I'll give you details on the secret later when I have energy.

Any players you can recommend? I am looking into prospecting and now seems like a good time to start.

Also players that list Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, and Derek Jeter as their favorite professional ballplayers.

This just in: my dad told me kids with premature onset ACNE grow up to be MLB power hitters. The first thing he looks for is acne.

My father was raised in Cuba by a pack of wolves until he was 23, and later discovered Jose Canseco in a cardboard box next to a whore house in Pinar Del Rio.

Absolute worst case of blackheads and skin flaking he'd ever seen in a 7 year old. It was at that point he knew: he'd discovered a star.

Lacks self confidence and is a Cubs fan. I wouldn't spend too much time PCing him.

No zits detected, and complexion you'd spot on only a Brazilian supermodel.

Interesting. I've heard differently from other scouts. I heard kids with premature onset acne (or POA for short) are just nancies who were too big of a pu**y to play another sport and are only playing so that their mom doesn't send them to military school.

Just what my sources tell me, could be wrong.

He really just fell off the face of the Earth. Much like Mark Prior.

That's honestly what I'd heard before.

But my dad performed a baptism on Dickie Thon right before 'Nam war, so I'm 99% sure he knows what he's talking about.

What about that young and upcoming second baseman with no arms? I heard he has incredible speed although he doesn't have a great batting average and sucks at fielding.

Not sure.

Dig 'em up. We'll give him the dermatologist rundown.

I've seen him do the Ozzie Smith backflip. Twice.

Unfortunately, no oily t-zone: no care.

My dad's jaw literally just dropped.

He'd love to track him down and hand him a bat and see what he can do. (with no other people within a 50 foot radius in a locked room, for obvious public safety concerns)

Any leads or info?

Too late, HE'S MINE! I offered him a contract for 50 years worth one hundred million shares of Enron stock, and he quickly accepted. The Montreal Expos have a new star!
