New York Mets' scouting report on top draft pick Alan Zinter: "It's a good thing this guy wears a catcher's mask a lot, because he ain't exactly a looker. ... Has the potential to lead the league in chin. ... Swallows his gum. ... Says he reads at least one book a month. We didn't know there were that many 'Curious George' tales. ... All his clothes are made of mesh. His brain may be, as well. ... Threw out 60 percent of basestealers in 1989 — wait, no, that's 6.0 percent. Shoot. ... Should make a great 'player to be named later' at some point. ... Can squat with the best of 'em. ... He's a so-so hitter, but we're hoping his creepiness will force some mistakes from pitchers."
