Chicago Cubs' scouting report on "top prospect" Ryan Hawblitzel: "Let's see, hmm, Hawblitzel. Yeah, that name really rolls right off your tongue. ... We'll need to schedule his workouts around his catechism and eighth-grade algebra classes. ... Coach will have to teach him a changeup — and how to shave. ... Let's get him a ridiculously huge hat. Oh, wait. Never mind. ... Man, the kid sure does dislike sideburns. ... This photo shows his head in the clouds. From what we hear, that's appropriate."
