Chicago Cubs' scouting report on farmhand Greg Smith: "This kid has a 'plus' bat. Of course, it has wings and eats insects. ... Has great hands, for picking corn. ... Hard to believe, but his name is the most interesting thing about him. ... Not good: He actually swings with his chin perched on his shoulder. ... The closest he'll get to Wrigley is chewing the gum. ... On second thought, he has a shot at playing with the cubs. At the zoo. ... Not sure who this guy is, but I think I saw this uniform and card border as part of a cutout at an amusement park photo booth."
