Name: Willie Ansley
Team: Houston Astros
Position: Outfield
Value of card: Bulldog poo
Key career stat: Zero major league games
Houston Astros scouting report on top draft pick Willie Ansley: "Claims to be Willie Mays-Hayes, but plays more like Wesley Snipes. ... Obsessed with bulldogs. High school mascot is the Tigers, but he went ahead and painted a portrait of a bulldog on the school's outfield fence. Not really sure what to make of this. ... Couldn't win a footrace with a fish. ... Struck out 100 times. From a tee. ... Best catch he made all year was taking Sheila Cutberth to prom. ... Could see him never reaching the bigs and being out of baseball in six years. Still, can't be any worse than Brian Meyer. ... Right?"
